Q: Do horses need to be exercised every day?
A: Yes! No matter their age or fitness level, daily exercise is vital for horse fitness, helping to build muscle, avoid injury, reduce stress, and improve overall health.

Q: How often should a horse be exercised?
A: The frequency of exercise will depend on the horse’s age, current level of fitness, and disposition. It also depends on what your horse is being trained for.

Q: How long do you put a horse in a horse walker for?
A: Typically the amount of time a horse should be placed in a walker is 15 minutes in each direction. However, this can vary according to the type of conditioning program. The amount of time for rehabilitating horses with hot walkers can be 10 minutes or less, where conditioning horses may require sessions as long as 60 minutes. Young horses can benefit from horse walkers too.

Q: What does a horse exerciser do?
A: A horse exerciser is a motorized device that guides horses to walk in a circular or oval pattern. These devices help to improve equestrian performance, help horses recovering from injuries, and assist with training horses.

Q: What are the benefits of a horse walker?
A: The benefits of a horse walker are numerous and far-reaching for both horse and rider. This device does not require the weight and strain of a rider, which helps horses recover faster following physical activity.

Vitafloor walkers have a control box, which offer equine professionals complete speed control. This allows for the rehabilitation of the injured horse, as well as maximum speed for training horses. Exercisers help warm up muscles for reduced risk of injury prior to riding and help the horse’s body recover gradually afterward.

Our products are manufactured to high safety standards and feature safe fencing to offer your equine partner a high level of quality and security. They can be used for several purposes, including strength training and horse rehabilitation, providing maximum cost savings.

Q: Are horse exercisers the best exercise for race horses?
A: The best type of exercise for any horse will depend on their disposition. Many horse professionals have found they must gradually increase exposure to exercisers until the horse feels comfortable. Otherwise, exercisers can be used by horse owners to train and exercise racehorses because their speeds can allow for trotting and cantering.

Q: Do horse exercisers help horses with injuries?
A: Yes! Horse exercisers have helped adult horses regain their range of motion, prevent injury, and reduce back pain. In fact, they are used by horse professionals to provide physical therapy, resistance training, and more.
