The principle of the Rail-Gliding Horse Walker allows for new variations in the pattern of the walking track.
The walking track can now have curved as well as straightaway sections.
This results in a more natural training for horses.
A study conducted by Professor Paul Farrington and Dr. David Marlin from Bristol University has shown that there are significant advantages to be gained in using an oval horse walker compared to using a round one.
Running in an oval puts loading on the horses’ limbs with a combination of straight ahead and curved movements in the just same way as is the case for riding or during free movement.
KRAFT is a pioneer in the field of oval walkers.
Development of oval, rectangular and square horse walkers began about 3 years ago.
We currently have approximately 80 such machines around the world.
