The walker has become a necessary tool for every day training and is used by many leading trainers, an example being Cambridge Stud, Stephen McKee, Bjorn Baker, Chris Waller, Kevin Gray, Peter &Dawn Williams, Singapore Racing Club, Royal Cavalry of Oman.
We are starting to see an increase with walkers being used in the equestrian and show jumping world by the likes of Sir Mark Todd and Carl Hester (England).
Pre trainers and agistment farms are also seeing the benefits of walking horses and the walkers are being used by leaders in the field amongst which are Lyndhurst Farms, Muskoka Farms and Breckon Farm.
The unique design of the monorail system enables us to construct a purpose built roofing system significantly reducing the cost of roofing your machine, spouting can be added if required, we offer a shade cloth roofing system ideal for the Middle Eastern market.
The Monorail system was designed so that the walker runs in a continuous stable motion with each and every gate individually attached to the monorail ensuring the upmost safety of the horse. It also allows for the roof to be installed as part of the structure which significantly reduces to the cost of the roof versus a cantilever design.
The walkers are fitted with large and small nylon wheels which ensure smooth running of the machine
Internal and external gates allow easy access to the centre of the walker. Backing gates can be electrified.
A lunging ring is available for the 16, 18, 20, 25 and 30 meter walkers, fully utilising the centre space, it comes with a complete set of internal panels.
The mesh and rubber frame allows for greater visibility for both horse and operator when in use increasing your horse safety, it also allows increased air flow around the horses legs.
The generous bay sizes allow horsed to trot or canter on the larger machines and move freely in the space, bay sizes are 2.1 meters wide x 4 to 4.8 meters long.
This allows the horse to turn around in the bay when changing direction.
The walkers are fitted with a control box with 9 variable speed options allowing them to go from 5-25kms, speed level 4-6 are the most commonly used settings.
All walkers come with a remote control enabling the operator to start and stop as necessary, ideal for loading and unloading horses.
The walker requires 240 volts of single phase power, three phase option is also available, and the control box is fitted with an inverter which inverts your single phase to three phase. It is recommended all walkers be fitted with a surge protector system at the installation stage, this is done by a registered electrician.
There are two options for the base of the walker, one being concrete curbing with sand infill, the second being a full concrete base overlaid with rubber matting.
Installation of the base options are available for all walkers.
An entranceway can be added to the outside of the walker frame adding extra weather protection for both horse and staff.
We supply all plans for the earthworks and electrical work.
Yes to both on a 20, 25 or 30 meter walker, trot only on a 16 meter walker and walking only on a 10 or 12 meter walker
Single Phase to control box - Inside the control box is invertor technology to enable the motor to run on three phase power. It is advised that your walker is fitted with Surge Protection.
