Horses are animals which wish to move around a lot
In the wild horses can travel up to 50 km a day hunting for food.
The health and vitality of a horse depends primarily on the amount it moves.
The movement is a prerequisite for blood flow and healthy growth.
Horse walkers are an ideal installation to balance out movement deficits and to allow controlled training of horses through walking or trotting.
Horse walkers are usually driven from the middle over a central drive unit.
