Resistance Conditioning

Have you ever wished that you could train your horses on a hill any day and any time you wanted? Well now you can do it in a snap and you can control the length and steepness of the hill just by turning a dial or pushing a pedal all the while keeping weight off the horses back.

How you ask? It's easy with one of our Racehorse Conditioning Systems Resistance Carts. Resistance carts are not new to harness racing of course and we perceive a viable tool in the Thoroughbred World for those owners and trainers who are willing to think and work a bit "outside the box".

Science tells us that a regular regamin of resistance work will help improve connective tissue and with the normal concussion increase bone density. Why do so many thoroughbred racehorses not make it to the track and too many break down? Speed kills and the weight of the rider on the horse's back too soon and too often may be two reasons.

One of our T-Bred trainer clients recently said, "I think using a resistance cart it the development of young thoroughbreds is a saviour. It gets them straight and settled right quick. More important though is how it can help increase bone density and improve the development of connective tissue with out putting a rider on its back. To me it's like an inexpensive insurance policy".

By training a thoroughbred to pull, and that's easy, you have a whole new dimension to properly condition the horse for a longer and more successful future. They will love the additional dimension and cross training possibilities.

You have two choices:

Click here to review the history and see Innovation of Sweden's ProTrainer. This is the "Grand Daddy" of resistance carts with over 4000 units in operation in Europe. The ProTrainer sells for only $4995.

Click here to see Custom of Finland's Athletic II. This slightly lighter weight unit features a very handy one foot control for adding and decreasing the resistance load. The Athletic II sells for only $4595.
