An accident is in a small corner. Fortunately, more and more attention is being paid to reduce the severity of accidents in equestrian sports. But when it comes to improving safety within equestrian sports, it is often about wearing an approved cap or body protector. What is often forgotten is that adjustments to your arena can also help to increase safety for horses and riders. At Equitrend, we now have the perfect product in-house that ensures that your arena becomes a true “safety zone”.
The Safety Wall
Hopefully you have not yet experienced it yourself, but it happens with some regularity that a rider of a horse falls and then hits the wall of the arena. We often see this with still inexperienced horse riders, with riding young horses, but of course this can also happen to more experienced riders. Because most of the walls are made of wood or steel, the riders and even the horses can get real nasty injuries. Fortunately, this can be prevented by installing our Safety Wall. In short, the Safety Wall is a maintenance-free frying arena wall that absorbs the blow in the event of a fall. Available in two versions and multiple colors, this is a solution that fits in every arena.
What makes the Safety Wall so “safe” is the combination of design and material. We have chosen to work with a smooth, lightweight plastic of the highest quality. The plastic wall is also shock and impact resistant. When a rider or horse falls against the Safety Wall, it will spring along slightly and with that absorb the fall. An additional advantage of the Safety Wall, due to the use of plastic, the Safety Wall requires little to no maintenance. This means that the owners of a stable house spend a lot less money in the longer term. That is a different story with the maintenance and replacement of the wooden arena walls.
Suitable for every design
To make the Safety Wall attractive for everyone, there are two different versions available. The Safety Wall Budget and the Safety Wall Pro. The quality is of course the same for both versions. The only difference is that the Safety Wall Budget is only available in black and the Safety Wall Pro is available in any desired RAL-color. Because of the possibility of being able to design the color yourself, the Safety Wall Pro fits precisely with every design. In addition to the Safety Wall, it is possible to chose for various additional additions for both versions, such as the special doors or the folding step-up aid. Improving safety is never a bad choice, so don’t hesitate to do it if you have the opportunity.
