Active Stable

We are all used to the conventional keeping of horses in individual stables. To make life more comfortable for those horses, small paddocks are built connected to their boxes and they are put out to pasture or exercise yards for a few hours each day.

If horses were able to speak they would say that this was well-intentioned but not satisfactory at all. Horses want to live with other horses permanently and they want to eat small portions while being able to move around freely. As long as they are provided with a protective area, weather does not cause any difficulties for them. If horses were able to behave the way they liked to, they would immediately emigrate to the steppes. Because nowadays natural keeping of horses in the steppes is not possible, the only possibility is to keep horses as close to their natural habitat as achievable.

The active stable provides horses with everything they need: life within a herd, individual feeding as needed, lots of exercise and fresh air. Whoever has the chance to get to know the active stable will be impressed. Horses which have been kept in conventional individual stables will go through a remarkable, positive change in their character.

 

 

 

After a very short time of getting to know the active stable, horses are more laid-back, calmer, physically at their best and, concerning work with their people, much more friendly.

And even for the owner of the stable, a completely new period will start: Work in a active stable is considerably reduced due to the feeding technology being used and there is no fixed labor time left. The illustration above is meant to provide a better understanding of how a active stable is constructed. When assembling, there are countless possibilities to create a real paradise for the horses.
