Active Stables for Horses
Our Active Stables – for Happy, Healthy Horses
Plenty of space for the well-being of your horse:
Active horse stables focus on the well-being of the horses in the herd and give them more freedom and exercise than conventional horse stables. In addition, owners do not have to necessarily ride their horse every single day, as they exercise each and every day in the stables. The first time we even read about this revolutionary new stable to improve the horses life, we knew straight away that this was what we wanted to do at the Kasperhof. Since 2013, we proudly welcome all horses & owners to enjoy the many advantages of our new active stables.
Plenty of exercise and natural feeding:
Horses are herd animals and are not happy in a lonely stable. In addition, they lack exercise and regular feeding times are not the natural way for horses to feed. Even when we feed them 2-3 times per day, it does not necessarily imitate natural feeding habits in the wild. To address these issues, active horse stables have made changes to ensure maximal well-being for every horse in the stable or herd.
Most important improvements:
- All horses can freely move around and go to common feeding stations and sheltered areas. This added freedom allows all horses to exercise approximately 20 times more compared to a conventional horse stable, keeping the horses in the herd fitter and healthier.
- Considering horses are grazing herd animals, they regularly eat small amounts of food. A chip in the mane of the horse regulates the amount of hay and horse-feed the horse receives hourly within a 24-hour period. For snacks in-between the horses additionally can graze at the hay rack in the centre of the active stables.
- Horses spend the entire year outdoors, while always having the option of retreating to the sheltered parts of the stables. After riding during winter, your horse can enjoy warming up in our special solarium for horses.
