Benefits of the Q-Line Arena Kick Wall
Even the most accomplished horses and riders in the world can have accidents, and both can experience serious injuries in both indoor and outdoor arenas (especially metal buildings with steel beam construction).
Q-Line is recognized for putting safety first in all their products. Its award-winning, horse arena safety walls and riding arena kick systems are proving to be invaluable in preventing blunt impact against steel or wood walls.
This is the greatest advantage of the Q-Line safety wall. The Safety Wall is designed to keep the horse and rider off the wall and to prevent the horse getting its hoof stuck under it. In addition, the polyethylene material is much more forgiving than wood. It has much better shock absorption, is virtually unbreakable, and can’t splinter like wood does.
Durable Synthetic Material
Maximizing ride quality and protection, the high-quality synthetic material is also waterproof. It holds up in a range of conditions, withstands a high mechanical load, and is extremely shock-absorbent and durable, contributing to its long-lasting performance.
Increased Rider Confidence and Athlete Response
With the Q-Line equestrian kick wall in place, riders can know that they and their horse are protected in the event of a mishap. In not having to be concerned about the reliability of the kick wall, riders can train or compete with far fewer distractions and more confidence, focusing on the task at hand.
Sensing their rider’s confidence, the ever-intuitive equine athlete will also benefit from better focus and better arena performance.
Easy Mounting and Access
An optional integrated mounting aid helps the rider mount the horse with ease. It also automatically closes and becomes flush with the arena wall. The safety wall also has a hinged door for easy arena access. Safety wall gates with special integrated hinges that only allow doors to open to the inside. Each equestrian kick wall includes corner sets with screws and plastic plugs for brick, and steel-based walls. The wall panels in our horse safety walls are made to resist horse kicks, but they can also be mounted to a steel back construction for extra long lasting performance.
Ideal for Rehabilitation
Rehabilitation facilities and other locations offering specialized equine-related services can also benefit from the Q-Line equestrian kick wall. Rehabilitators can help their patients progress through their recovery processes instead of having to deal with preventable setbacks.
Easy to Install and Maintain
The Q-Line wall requires no special training to install it in your riding arenas. As well, it is easily maintained. The wall can be cleaned by spraying it with water. The surface is smooth and non-stick, repelling dirt.
Options for Every Budget
The Q-Line wall is available in a Pro version, and a Budget version for competition, training, and rehabilitation facilities of all sizes and capacities. The Pro version of our indoor arena kick wall offers a curved design that protects the rider’s legs and pushes horses away from the wall to minimize damage and protect the equine hoof wall.
The Budget version offers low maintenance with a shock-absorbing, rounded design. The curved kickwall offers the same quality and important features as the Pro version, providing the injury prevention that an angled arena wall simply cannot.
Safety that Extends to Doors and Gates
The Q-Line equine arena safety wall is ideal for extending your layer of safety and eliminating sharp edges that can cause inadvertent injury.
