A 100-acre horse farm dedicated to revolutionizing equine care has opened in Schuylerville,
From rest to rehabilitation, GMP Farm offers diverse opportunities for the recovery and wellbeing of equine athletes. Situated on a an estate just minutes from downtown Saratoga, it embodies a holistic approach to healing and preventative care for horses of all disciplines, the organization said.
Featuring state-of-the-art barns and the latest equine healthcare technology, GMP Farm is the culmination of excellence between former thoroughbred trainer Gary Gullo and partner, racing owner Anthony Melfi.
An experienced 24-hour onsite team led by farm manager Steve Rybowski, who came up under Hall of Famer John Nerud, boasts over 200 years of experience.
Officials said customized therapeutic programs begin with cutting edge thermographic diagnostics along with veterinary consultation. As a leader in equine science, the farm boasts the nation’s seventh Equine Hyperbaric Oxygen Chamber, and only HBOT New York.
Equine Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) is a drug-free and non-invasive treatment option for horses that helps treat many different conditions and diseases, officials said. With HBOT technology, horses receive a high concentration of pure oxygen in a completely sealed and pressurized environment. This veterinary treatment option can greatly reduce healing time in a safe and calm environment, while increasing the longevity of their careers.
Dry salt therapy in the form of a dual stall chamber provides dry vapor of concentrated medical grade salt particles dispersed into the air which is absorbed by the skin and inhaled reaching deep down into the lungs, according to the group. For all equines, it provides an overall wellbeing boost by improving coat condition, cardiovascular function, stamina and energy levels making it ideal for performance horses pre and post competition.
Additionally, GMP Farm offers dual varieties of salt therapy. The cold-water salt spa successfully addresses virtually all lower leg injuries besides tendon and ligament injuries. Equally important, the spa helps treat laminitis, splints, sore shins, open wounds, and hoof conditions, officials said.
