Boarding – Fitness & Conditioning

A consistent fitness program can improve and maintain cardiovascular and musculoskeletal conditioning, improving overall performance.

The horse’s body adapts to training with an adequate period of physical conditioning in the following ways:

    1. The cardiovascular system improves in the capacity to deliver oxygen to working muscles
    2. The muscular system improves in the capacity to utilize oxygen and fuel utilization improves
    3. Bones, tendons, ligaments and muscles increase in size and strength
    4. The temperature regulating system achieves greater ability to lose body heat during exercise thereby avoiding excessive  increases in body          temperature
    5. Neuromuscular coordination improves as the central nervous system adapts to the new skills required for a particular discipline

In other words, as the horse goes through the conditioning processes and becomes more fit, it exercises more efficiently, as well as accomplishing more work before becoming fatigued.

Fitness & Conditioning Programs

We have developed fitness and conditioning programs based on the success we have had assisting various horses of different disciplines.  Each program has benefited the horse in different stages of their level of fitness, conditioning and rehabilition.  However, if the programs that we have developed do not suit your requirments, we can develop a custom program on a case by case basis depending on your horse’s needs and budgetary requirements.

Fitness Development

Our Fitness Development program is perfect for horses returning back to phyical exercise after a lay-up or injury.  Horses can be safely reintroduced to work in a controlled environment with consistant footings in our state-of-the-art indoor exerciser.

Our indoor exerciser allows us to incorporate as much free movement as possible for the horses, while still maintaining the ability to control and adjust the speed and direction of their movement.  Due to the fact that the horse is not being pulled along, but moves at a natural pace, they are able to relax and stretch their top line, thereby increasing the elasticity of their muscles.

CUSTOM FITNESS & CONDITIONING PROGRAMS

Fitness & Conditioning

We take pride in developing unique Fitness and Conditioning programs to benefit each horse individually, each time they visit us. Everything we do at CamHaven Farms is dependent on your horse’s requirements and physical needs.  We understand that in some cases pre-designed programs are not the best option for you and your horse. Custom programs are available depending on your horse’s needs and budgetary requirements.

Rehabilitation

With equine rehabilitation, each case is different. Every horse will be evaluated as an individual.  Our rehabilitation programs cover everything from post surgery, wound care, abscesses, soft tissue injuries and much more.  Our team works closely with your veterinarian to develop a program that best suits your horse.  We know and understand budget is an important factor for our clients.  We are happy to work with you to provide the best equine rehab we can within your means.

 

Boarding – Rehabilitation & Post Surgical Recovery

CamHaven works very closely with veterinarians to build the ideal rehabilitation program to ensure your horse’s optimal recovery, enhance performance, improve health and return to competition faster and stronger than ever before.  We are happy to work with any vet of your own choosing and also have a veterinarian onsite 2-3 days each week.

The level of care is determined by what suits the individual horse, depending on their specific requirements and/or discharge instructions from the hospital.

Please note that our facility in no way is a replacement to regular veterinary care and in the case of an injury or health issues a Veterinarian should be consulted.  It is important to us that together we build a good working relationship and rapport with your Veterinarian to better serve your horse’s needs.
