Daily Stay

Daily rate swimming involves the horse actively stabled at Maui Meadow Farm and swimming daily at the facility (custom plans available to swim per trainer or owner's instructions). Most commonly, horses who stay at our facility are horses who are currently in a rehabilitation plan and race horses & sport horses gaining a competitive edge conditioning daily to relieve joints and the daily stress of concussion on the horse's joints and body to prep for either a race or competition. 

Each horse swimming while staying at the Maui Meadow facility receives and full bath, cooler and blanket (if need be during winter months) is hand walked thoroughly and bandaged if need be according to the trainer's recoomendations. 

Equine Swimming

Maui Meadow Farm hosts an indoor swimming pool with the dimensions of 60x30 (150 feet total swim length per lap) and 12 feet deep for total, concussion free therapy and conditioning. The pool building is heated in the winter months, with hot and cold water accessible for bathing after the horse's swim and the water temperature kept cooler to help reduce pain, heat and inflammation. The pool features a lap system where the horse can continuously swim laps without exiting the pool, or take single laps as needed to exit and reenter at any time. Horses swim with at least three handlers and are accompanied by a lead horse into the water for their first time with at least 5 handlers. Horses are completely buoyant in the water, allowing for concussion free therapy.
