The magnum® Horse Walker is internationally recognised as a safe, reliable and unique monorail design. This allows your horses to be trained and exercised with minimal labour costs. More than just a walking machine, the magnum® Horse Walker can be used for:
- Body building,
- Pre training
The walker has become a necessary tool for every day training and is used by many leading trainers,an example being Cambridge Stud, Stephen McKee, Bjorn Baker, Chris Waller, Kevin Gray, Peter & Dawn Williams, Singapore Racing Club, Royal Cavalry of Oman.
Pre trainers and agistment farms are also seeing the benefits of walking horses and the walkers are being used by leaders in the field among which are Lyndhurst Farms, Muskoka Farms and Breckon Farm.
The Monorail system was designed so that the walker runs in a continuous stable motion as it is fitted with both large and small nylon wheels which ensures smooth running of the machine. Each and every hinged backing gate is individually attached to the monorail to ensure the upmost safety of the horse. Backing gates can be electrified. The additional feature of the monorail system enables us to construct a purpose built roofing system significantly reducing the cost of the roof verses a cantilever design. Spouting can be added if required.
A lunging ring is available for the 20 and 25 meter walkers, fully utilising the centre space. It comes with a complete set of internal panels. Internal and external gates allow easy access to the centre of the walker.
The mesh and rubber frame allows for greater visibility for both horse and operator when in use increasing your horse safety, it also allows increased air flow around the horses legs.
The generous bay sizes allow horses to trot on the larger machines and move freely in the space, bay sizes are 2.1 meters wide x 4 to 4.7 meters long. This allows the horse to turn around in the bay when changing direction.
The walkers are fitted with a control box with 9 variable speed options allowing them to go from 5-15kph, speed level 4-6 are the most commonly used settings.
The walker requires 240 volts of single phase power to the control box. Control box invertor takes three phase cable to motors.
All walkers are supplied with a remote control enabling the operator to start and stop as necessary, ideal for loading and unloading horses.
There are two options for the base of the walker, one being concrete curbing with sand infill, the second being a full concrete base overlaid with magnum® rubber matting.
An entranceway can be added to the outside of the walker frame adding extra weather protection for both horse and staff.
Full installation of the walker is available, we supply foundation plans for the concrete base work and electrical wiring plans.
