Weekend Wellness: The Most Famous Reindeer

Staying in good enough shape to deliver presents to millions of children on Christmas Eve can be hard, but this “reindeer” knows how to prepare.

Here’s one way to keep those reindeer fit and ready to delivery toys on Christmas Eve… Even if the reindeer happen to be horses in disguise.

The Purdue University College of Veterinary Medicine & Teaching Hospital specializes in diagnosing and treating conditions affecting equine athletes and conducting vital research on the prevention and treatment of such disorders. Their goal is to keep these horses feeling and performing at their best.

This mare, Leila, uses the equine treadmill regularly to keep her in shape for demonstrations and to reduce risk of injury.

Go equine treadmills, go “reindeer” and go riding!
