Horsewalkers are useful supplements to the daily training and grazing schedule of horses. Our horses are very well fed and need exercise. The regular extra exercise that horses get in the walker not only improves their condition but also helps prevent them becoming overweight.
All horse walkers are equipped with safety grilles to separate the horses from one another and to ensure smooth, regular movement. We had an equine science graduate take a close look at these safety grilles. To determine the well-being of the horses in the horsewalker, various series of measurements were carried out to determine the hormone status of the horses. Comparisons were made with a safety grille with a grating insert, chains and rubber flaps, one with movable plastic bars and one with a perforated rubber mat.
