Hudson Aquatic Systems
Why Aquatic Therapy for Winter Conditioning and Rehab Winter can bring obvious challenges for conditioning and rehab for equines, but aquatic therapy in an AquaPacer underwater treadmill from Hudson Aquatic Systems can be the most efficient and effective option with a quicker, safer workout. The AquaPacer offers a controlled environment enabling optimum fitness training and rehabilitation while avoiding injury during harsh winter conditions. The AquaPacer is available with a 1,000 gallon warm / ambient water supply and the AquaPacer Plus includes the warm / ambient water supply and a 500 gallon cold saltwater supply for improved therapy and recovery. Below are tips to help you determine why aquatic conditioning and therapy with an AquaPacer underwater treadmill during the winter months will benefit your operation: • Choose and control workouts using warm, hot and cold salt water which may be difficult with other conditioning and rehab methods this time of year. • Adjust the depth of water to control buoyancy and resistance. Water is 800 times as dense as air, which builds muscle and endurance quickly. • Adjust the treadmill speed and the duration of the session to achieve optimum results. • Speed up conditioning and rehab time – A 20 minute aquatic workout is equivalent to a 40 minute land based workout without the strain on joints. • There are no limitations due to outdoor conditions or time of day, and it’s always ready to use. • We’ve been manufacturing underwater treadmill systems since 1994 – no company has more experience than Hudson Aquatic Systems. • AquaPacers are made in the USA since 1999. Aquatic therapy in an AquaPacer underwater treadmill system can give your equine athlete the boost needed for training and conditioning during the winter months, or speed up recovery to get back on track in time for spring. Most importantly, you can avoid unnecessary injuries or training delays due to weather conditions. Contact Hudson Aquatic Systems today and start planning for improved outcomes in 2022.

Hallmarq Veterinary Imaging
The proven game changer in lameness diagnosis MRI has for long been the imaging method of choice in human medicine, making it the gold standard for diagnosing pathology. Hallmarq’s Standing Equine MRI system (sMRI) brings the same diagnostic capability to equine clinical practice, with the equine patient at the forefront of every design decision. Commonly, the outcome of a conventional lameness workup is a horse that blocks to a certain region but has no visible changes on X-ray or ultrasound. Response to treatment may be the only way to confirm or refute a potential diagnosis, and the horse may have to repeatedly return to the clinic for further examination. This pathway costs both time and money, while the patient may lose condition and the injury gets worse. By visualizing slices through tissue, MRI can quickly and precisely localize damage to both bone and soft tissues without the need for anesthesia. Now with the introduction of Hallmarq’s Standing Leg CT, advanced equine imaging has never been more accessible, affordable and convenient. Visit hallmarq.net to learn more and step up to a new level in lameness diagnosis. If you’d like to hear more about either of these products and talk to a human, contact us via hallmarq.net/contact-us/ and we’ll get back to you.
Equine Leg Magic
In 2004, an all-natural mineral supplement was formulated by K.C. Kelley, PhD for use in a rapidly growing yearling gelding. He contracted tendons in his front legs and was walking on both front fetlocks. The young colt was given Dr. Kelly’s formula and because of his rapid improvement in 8 weeks, it was then offered to other horse owners for use with their young horses with leg problems. In 2005, the company, Equine Leg Magic LLC, was formed to manufacture and market the mineral supplement. The product was named Equine Leg Magic due to customers referring to the supplement as Leg Magic. ELM has been found to have positive effects on a number of horse problems and injuries. Horses from minis to drafts — from 10 days of age to 37 years of age have been fed ELM. There have been positive results with issues including ringbone, soft tissue injuries, hoof problems, and joint issues. Equine Leg Magic LLC is dedicated to giving good service, answering questions concerning the possible use of ELM for your horses and providing a cost-effective product. When you buy ELM the packaging isn’t fancy (double zip lock bags) and 2nd day flat rate shipping is included in the pricing. 352-283-6331 • EquineLegMagic@aol.com Website: EquineLegMagic.net
