Horse Walkers

There are three covered horses walkers at the yard. They allow for controlled exercise and can have up to six horses on at any one time. Walkers are very important when horses require light exercise, this can be from injury, conditioning, fitness levels or they may be on a break.

On work mornings the horses will spend 30 minutes after intense exercise on the walker. This allows them to cool down and lets their bodies gradually return to their normal state of function. This reduces the risk of any serious conditions developing after intense exercise.
