Ask Daniel Bluman : Do you treadmill your horses or do you prefer putting them on the Pessoa or lunging? How often is that part of their routine?

@clarissasimionato it is this : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x_9CrGQ1wrc it is very useful to walk your horses when you do not have a walker or want them to walk straight and sometimes with some ground inclinaison :)
What is "treadmill"?
Hi Katrina,

I like all three, and I use all of them in my system depending on each horse and its needs. I like for horses to go out multiple times everyday. Apardi is a horse with a lot of energy: he does everyday paddock, treadmill and then gets ridden or lunged. Baccara for example does not have a lot of condition, she goes to the treadmill everyday and is then ridden or goes to the paddock. I think that the most time they spend in the paddock is better. Horses who do not go out enough develop diseases and go lame much easier than horses with good conditions.
