The highlight of the Rail-Gliding Horse Walker is that it 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 a round one.
With the combination of straightaway and curved stretches, running in an oval places loads on the horses’ limbs in the same way
as during riding or moving freely.
