“The potential performance gains of an altitude training strategy will outweigh all other forms of modern sports science interventions.”

The potential performance gains of an altitude training strategy will outweigh all other forms of modern sports science interventions.
At altitude the horse can work at a much lower speed to get the same cardiovascular response
I can definitely feel the lack of strength, flexibility and especial lack of muscle mass that Henry is displaying this year compared to last year when he was on a Vitafloor each day.
The Vitafloor is great for the horses warming up or cooling down as it stimulates muscles gently.
My Vitafloor is an intrinsic part of our training and fitness programme. All the horses on the yard use it every week throughout the year; this includes the hunters, eventers and my children's ponies. I feel the floor improves muscle stability and tone. It is a vital piece of equipment for Team Taylor and I would not be without it.
