Horse on a treadmill

A group of international pony club riders saw a horse put through its paces on the University’s equine treadmill yesterday as part of a tour of the vet clinic. The treadmill allows equine researchers to study a horse’s gait, and study locomotive-respiratory coupling — how a horse breathes in relation to its stride.
An interesting experiment that shows us the horse’s ability to accommodate with any surface but we do not want to think about what would have happened if it had fallen.
