Major Differences Between Horse Walkers & Pastures

The primary difference between horse walkers and using a pasture has to do with freedom of movement. When letting horses roam free in a pasture, they can move within a space as freely as they please; in contrast, a horse walker ensures the horse gets necessary exercise in a more controlled environment. MK Horse Walkers, as experts and innovators in this field, will also tell you horse walkers involve a larger amount of human interaction than using a pasture.

Advantages of Both Horse Exercise Approaches

One of the biggest advantages of using a horse walker is that it can help to prevent boredom and restlessness in horses. When horses are left in a pasture, they may become bored and start to exhibit problem behaviors, such as pawing at the ground or chewing on fences. Using a horse walker also allows the animals to get energy out and prevents them from being injured on fencing or other obstacles that may exist in a pasture.

On the other hand, using a pasture instead of a horse walker can allow for more freedom of movement and can allow a horse to exercise at any time of day.
