Kraft Oval Walkers

Kraft Oval horse walkers are selling throughout their 50 countries, with the first ones delivered in 2002; in the UK, out of every 10 walker sales, 7 are for their oval walker.

The “dual “rail gliding machinery operates over the horses’ heads moving the horse dividing gates round.

A frame system that can move around corners holds the moving gates, which are stabilised on each side by guide wheels and connected by a pipe-profiled chain in the centre. This chain connects the moving gates to one another and pulls the entire walker sections through the established route.

This new system enables one to walk the horses in a straight line and make good use of the arena space. It is also possible to have a square & circular pattern with this “duel” rail gliding system construction. Since the moving gates are supported by a frame construction, the gates are more stable than the conventional walker style. As a result of this, the moving gates can also be constructed with more durable and heavier materials.

The latest Oval Kraft walker to be built in the UK is in Newmarket at Longholes Stud, Cheveley. It has a full roof, a horse entrance porch and measures 10m x 20m for 10 horses.

The sizes of the ovals can vary from 8m x 16m (5 horse) to 10m x 40m (16 horses), and can be as large as 25m x 100m (approximately 30 horses), and like the round ones they can all have a full roof, a partial roof or no roof.

Bespoke size ovals are also available, as per individual client requirements. The colours of the roof can be in a variety of colours, and there is also a wide choice of roofing materials. The inner and outer fences are either in hard wood or soft wood; the former is far more popular, as they hold their new look for much longer, and do not require regular wood treatments, as the soft wood does.

There are also various individual fence options available. Very high quality bespoke rubber flooring for all horse walkers is also available for the horse exercise area; this gives the maximum cushioning for the horse’s joints and ligaments, and 9 out of 10 clients select this option.

A square walker can also be built such as a 20m x 20m walker in Leicestershire.

A wind net can be added to keep the wind off the horses in winter and then rolled up in summer to allow the air to circulate freely.
