Specifications of a high-quality horse walker

Top-quality bearings, a noiseless V-belt drive with a long lifespan, and the safest for your horse. In addition, the complete construction is galvanized and water-resistant. The construction is fully thermally galvanized and has a low center of gravity for the best stability. Our standard sizes are 10, 12, 15, 16, 18, and 20 meters in diameter, for 3 to 8 horses. Custom-made horse walkers are also possible.

The horse walkers are equipped with a user-friendly control system with a digital frequency controller of the highest quality.

Pusher gates form the basis for your future horse walker?

Drive gates with bars extend the lifespan of the motor because they offer little resistance. The drive gates are all individually replaceable if necessary. All horse walkers come with an electric energizer system, as safety for the horses comes first!

This pusher gate system also ensures that not every impact is absorbed by the construction or the drive system. Each horse walker comes with aluminium bars that conduct electrical charge if desired. These bars give a very light shock of 6 joules. This is only useful in the beginning when you want to get the horses used to walking in a horse walker. Over time, the animal will make its rounds in the horse walker independently and with great pleasure.

Extra safety with Molenkoning’s Safeguard bars

For those who want to add extra safety to their horse walker, we offer Molenkoning Safeguard bars. The drive gates are then equipped with plastic bars (polyethylene). These bars are extremely strong but still very flexible. They are even flexible at temperatures below freezing.

These bars can bend but immediately spring back to their normal shape. These bars prevent fractures, and the plastic prevents sharp edges. The bars are covered with an aluminium cover, allowing the electric shock device to work in combination with our Safeguard bars.

To reduce the visibility of horses during training of wild horses and stallions, it is also possible to equip the drive gates with a windscreen net.
