Horse walkers are used in lots of stables and yards but
are they for you? They are a big expense and a big item so
it pays to thoroughly think about whether they are worth the
effort before investing in one.
In terms of time
saving, for individual horse owners, they really don’t save
that much time, but for anyone with multiple horses on their
hands, be they your own or people’s who pay you to look
after them, a horse walker can be a very good idea indeed.
Uses of a Horse Walker
Exercise is the
main reason for owning and using a horse walker. Yards where
horses are full stabled will need a horse walker. Without a
horse walker it can take forever to exercise all the horses
if you have plenty of staff. Most horse walkers can take
four or six horses. You can even buy a walker with a roof on
it and fencing all around, like its own self-contained unit.
The best walkers on the market will also have a wide
variety of speeds and settings to allow the user to tailor
each programme to the needs of the horses using it at that
particular time. Generally speaking, the walker will lead
horses around in a circle. Some walkers also have reverse
speeds should you find this necessary.
As well as
exercise, horse walkers can be useful as a way of cooling
down a horse after exercise. On a slower speed it won’t work
the horse but it will keep him moving and his muscles from
seizing up until he has cooled down. A horse walker can also
be used for halter breaking if you need to do this.
Another main reason for using horse walkers is to nurse an
ill horse back to health. Renewed use of a horse walker
every day can help to make the horse stronger and fitter and
build up his strength again little by little without fear of
working him too hard. Some horse walkers will even allow for
you to take pressure off the injured part of the horse,
allowing that part to rest while he still works the rest of
Safety of Horse Walkers
walker is a huge mechanical contraption, and, as such,
should be treated with care. Safety is vitally important in
the use and care of a horse walker, both for the horse and
the person operating it. The first thing to look for on any
horse walker is that it has an emergency cut off switch.
That way, if a horse becomes distressed while using a horse
walker, it can be freed immediately with little danger to
Whether or not a horse walker is worth the
effort is, at the end of the day, up to the individual horse
owner. They are very useful in saving time - a horse needs
to be exercised daily, there is no getting away from it. If
the horse is not getting enough exercise because you do not
have enough time, then a horse walker is certainly a
