Careful planning for your horses’ well-being

Your horses require optimal facilities and training conditions to feel well. Our planning is based on experience in equestrian sports, horse breeding and horse keeping as well as on the knowledge of what it takes to run a successful equestrian business.

Kraft Horse Walker

We are Kraft Horse Walker - The fitness specialists

Movement has been a key issue for us for many years. As specialists in horse walker systems, we rank among the leading manufacturers worldwide. Our products are used in over 50 countries, on all continents. 

Excellence in quality and features is our philosophy. Innovation is what drives us forward. Safe and horse-friendly training is the result of our work. Healthy and vital horses are our goal. Kraft ... keeps your horses fit!

Water Horse Walkers

The combination of a walker and a treading pool forms the basis for the water horse walker. A highly effective filter system ensures excellent water quality. The horses do not swim but tread water, so they have contact to the ground at all times. Just like with Kneipp treatments used in human medicine, the horse’s total musculoskeletal system is exercised and trained in an optimal way.

Ceiling-Mounted Horse Walkers

The central driving unit which holds the rotating arms and the suspended gates is mounted to the ceiling. Ceiling-mounted horse walkers offer a spacious interior which is ideal for lunging purposes. The roofing allows for year-round use of the lunging pen and walker.

Ground-Standind Horse Walkers

The central driving unit which holds the rotating arms and the suspended separation gates stands on the ground. This simple and robust construction principle is suitable for smaller and bigger installations alike. The horse walker can be built with or without partial roofing.

Rail-Gliding Horse Walkers

The rolling mechanism with the separation gates suspended from it is driven by a gliding rail. This construction principle allows the walker to be manufactured to any size. The space inside the track is free for use as a storage or riding area. The horse walker can be fitted with a partial or complete roof, or installed into an existing building.

Bacher Group


Bacher Products is a family-owned and run business with 30 years of experience in the arena construction business.

We manufacture the additives to be mixed with the sand for the production of top-quality arena footings.

Arena Footing

Sand, geo-textiles, fibres and PVC mats, when processed properly, add up to an equestrian surface of premium quality.

Arena Base Mats

PVC mats prevent mixing of the layers and keep the arena footing in place.

Textile Arena Footing

UV-resistant polyester flakes – fresh from the production line.

First Class Surface

World-class equestrian surface consisting of quartz sand, polyester flakes and fibres.
