Horse Wellness produces the patented Water Horse Walker, System Voncini. Due to its design as well as the technical and structural characteristics it provides many physical and therapeutic benefits for your horses.
Horses do not swim but tread water and move freely within the corridor with the added benefit of being able to change directions.
The computerized control panel allows one to program the rhythm of the pace and reverse directions at preset intervals.
An automatic safety device stops the rotation of the horse walker if the need arises
The water is kept constantly and hygienically clean by a powerful filtration system that purifies the water using chlorine or electrolysis of salt water. The efficiency of this system saves both money and time.
The Water Walker can also be used during the winter months with proper covering and a heating system for both water and air.
The system can be equipped with a hydro-massage device with 24 jets; a current generating device that produces more resistance which in turn results in better toning of the muscles; as well as a water heating/cooling system which keeps the temperature constant during all seasons.
Optional features provide a total personalization of the entire project that can be built according to our client’s needs and wishes.
Our Water Walker is completely pre-fabricated and thus reduces installation costs and time (approximately 15 days for the entire installation).
The water technolgy is developed, designed and patented by Voncini/Italy:
