The first horse treadmill by Kraft - SOLD!

Welcome on board! James Chapman has become the proud owner of the newly launched Kraft product - HORSE TREADMILL that was first introduced at Alltech National Horse Show 2013!

A different impression of horses

was gained, felt and experienced live by our tour group of 25 members. Looking forward to lots of sunshine the group landed in Toronto on 25.04.2012. After submitting to strict entry controls finally everyone was passed and the tour could get underway. Powerful impressions were afforded by the skyline with Toronto Tower and the wet pleasures of the Niagara Falls. The first encounter with equestrian outfits was of super class standard, in the shape of Sycamore Hall Farm and River Edge, operated by Hassler Dressage. River Edge’s proprietor owns 880,000 hectares of land. Yes, the number of zeros is correct. Only the USA owns more land than he does. The border is formed by Maryland in the northeast. Here everything focuses on racehorses. The programme included a visit to the horses’ morning training, the presentation of the Kentucky Derby winner 2012, Animal Kingdom, who has already won 2,371,800 dollars so far, and a visit to Bruce Jackson, who devotes his energies to equine rehabilitation and therapy.
The trail then led south via Washington. This part of the tour was rounded off by a visit to the racetrack and casino in Charleston. The sight of St. Bride astonished the group. For us Germans it is hard to understand how anyone can invest so much money in their hobby. In Front Royal a morning drinks reception awaited on the terrace, which the group enhanced with some German folk songs. A stop-off at Hooters, where the worst chicken wings in the USA are to be found, served by pretty waitresses, was a must. Plastic plates and American Breakfast took a bit of getting used to, but were all part of the experience. Once in Lexington the advantage of the home team was more evident than ever. Back to the Roots at the Sandberg Farm, where it all began with Kraft Brother USA in 2005. It is hard to imagine that once trucks passed by here on the sand track with their heavy loads. The company headquarters have moved to the industrial park on the way to Lexington, which simplifies business operations. Peter Berglar, originally from Cologne, and manager of Stonererath Farm, answered all our questions about the philosophy underpinning the world of racehorses. A little accident briefly dented the group’s spirits. Once the bus driver had recovered from his shock and the paper work had been completed, the trip resumed. Visits to famous stud farms like Three Jimmnys and Winstar, the Kentucky Horsepark, where Michael Jung gained his World Champion title in 2010, the racecourse in Keenland and Hagyard Clinic were on the programme. With some string pulling Frank managed to organise a tour of the private stable of Sheikh Mohamed bin Rashin al Maktum near Gainsborough. Visitors are otherwise strictly prohibited. The 500-hectare premise impressed everyone. However, what would a trip to the USA be like without whisky, spare ribs and a riverboat party? The whisky was sampled before the spare ribs at the Buffalo Trace Distillery in Frankford. A connoisseur of whisky initiated the group in the pleasures of the whisky world. It’s an open question as to the part played by the whisky in the race between Lea and Horst in the car park. The staff invited the group to a real Kentucky Barbecue on the Kraft company premises. “These are the best spare ribs I’ve ever eaten, and will probably ever eat”, commented Mr Mayer enthusiastically. The atmosphere was great. The tour members praised Frank Kraft’s outstanding commitment: “He’s turned into a real American,”  remarked a couple of Hohenloh voices in the party. Uwe Kraft was also highly praised for his excellent and attentive escorting of the group. Their appreciation made it all worthwhile. So where are we going next time???

Sales activity!!!

We have sold many of our horse walkers throughout the country. Four more Ceiling Mounted Horse Walkers have been installed in NY, WV, MA and FL. Our Rail Gliding Horse walker has also gained in its popularity. One of those oval walkers with Partial Roof was sold in CA. The sales for the Standard Horse Walkers with different fencing options such as Wood fence, Steel Tube fence and Steel Panel fence as well have also increased.

The first Water Horse Walker in Germany!

The KRAFT team along with the Horsewellness team have developed the Water Horse Walker to provide physical and therapeutic exercise for horses. Horses do not swim but tread water and move freely inside the pool. They are able to change their walking pace and direction as much as they want to.
