QREC Swimming Pool
Swimming pool facilities
An equine swimming pool is an essential facility for training horses. Our circular indoor pool is an invaluable training aid for problem horses whose injuries, would otherwise have stopped them from exercising. It’s also important for retaining and maintaining a basic level of fitness for horses. It’s a great aerobic workout, swimming gives full body conditioning with no concussion
