Our solariums used for both Rehabilitation and Retirement residents
Our solarium is powered by special infrared bulb heaters. These provide a pleasant warming effect that can improve circulation and help to relax tense muscles. The effect is similar to a horse being out in a field and enjoying warm sunshine – but without the harmful UV rays. As with humans, this treatment provides a valuable source of vitamin D, essential for joint and bone health and which also helps the body to absorb calcium. The solarium can be a useful way to complement the natural healing of a horse that has suffered abrasions or, perhaps, a sore back. Additionally, this can be used for drying from baths or rain.
