Monarch’s Horse Walker’s are world renowned for their quality, durability and reliability. Used by many including professional yards, such as race yards and smaller more private yards.
We have filmed a series of videos below, explaining how to use our Walkers safely and efficiently. Please note it is the responsibility of the owner of the horse walker (or an employer whose staff use the walker) to ensure that anyone using it has read and understood the manual and is well trained before hand.
Our electronic control box comes with as standard;-
The Horse Walker can be stopped at anytime by pressing the stop button
After both the green and red timed periods have been completed the exerciser will stop and remain stationary for a period of time equal to that set by the timers green period. When the time has elapsed, the exerciser (if left unattended) will become active again and will begin to rotate. The cycle will continue until the stop button is pressed.
Before loading a horse onto the walker, you must ensure that the ‘fence’ switch is switched to off.
The gate will be hinged on the left as standard (unless requested), you will need to lead the horse from the near side, this will allow you to open the gate and lead the horse in, whilst remaining in the gateway. Do NOT allow yourself to get between the Horse and the inner fence. When loading, take care not to allow the horse to exit before you close the gate.
In the event of an emergency hit the Emergency Stop Button on the control panel to immediately cut the power to the walker.
The Walker engaged/disengaged lever lever controls the ABS braking system. When the lever is moved to the walker disengaged position to ABS will be off, meaning the pushers will move freely enabling the operator to walk around the horse walker to ensure clear walkway. Please Note The ‘fence’ switch must be switched to off and the horse walker completely turned off before the pushers are touched.
To ensure the Horse Walker runs smoothly, a few basic checks can be made periodically.
To find out what oil goes into to our walkers click here.
Hydraulic Oil – Access to the sight glass for the hydraulic oil level can be gained by removing the back of the control box. To run correctly the oil should be between 50% – 75% full.
Bearings (Blue Bottle Oil) – It is prudent to check the oil round the flange bearing (central pyramid) every 3 months. Should the oil need topping up, a plastic oil feed (blue bottle) is provided as a spout to channel the oil onto the bearings. We recommend a Gearbox 220 oil but any gearbox oil, the thicker the better will work.
