Impressive, right? Kurtsystems is a PRE-TRAINING SYSTEM that prepares young horses for training and strengthens their musculoskeletal system.
Kurtsystems, at Kingwood Stud in Lambourn, is a revolutionary new process designed to aid the pre-training of young racehorses before they enter a traditional race-training regime. It introduces young horses to a pre-training program without the threat of human error in a closely monitored and controlled environment, a process that directly contrasts with the experience that many young racehorses face in their early period of training.
Horse owners, trainers, and breeders naturally expect the highest performance from their horses. However, research has shown that when “hard training” starts on young horses, whose musculoskeletal systems have not yet matured, there is a significant risk of injury taking place.
Indeed, musculoskeletal injuries are the most frequently encountered health problem in bloodstock racehorses. This is because two-year-old horses with underdeveloped leg joints are trained and raced under a heavy exercise regime. Unfortunately, such injuries, which occur in the body structures of young horses that are still developing, are usually irreversible and cause them to have a short or non-existent race career and lose their breeding potential.
46% of all leg injuries result from tendon or ligaments damage. Unfortunately, due to damage in the tendons that connect the muscle and bone structures in the horses’ body, the potential champion racehorse of the future can encounter a problem that will end its entire race career before it has started.
Lengthy and comprehensive trials have shown that the Kurtsystems pre-training exercise program has helped the young horses’ metabolism, skills, and muscle development. The six-month exercise period help maximizes the young horses’ bone strength and power, ensuring that tissues that have not yet adapted to exercise do not undergo excessive strain. During the exercises, improvement in the volumetric increase of muscle fibers, adaptation, flexibility, agility, and endurance was also observed.
The Kurtsystems pre-training system ensures that bones, muscles, tendons, and ligaments reach the strength required for training and ensures the young horses are equipped to tackle a challenging and competitive future. Kurtsystems has been built with the development of the young horse’s anatomy as its focus.”
