How does HIT Active Stable meet the needs of horses?
Feed & Water
One of the biggest drivers of horse behaviour, here's how we can manage nutritional needs of horses:
Automatic water drinkers
Fresh drinking water is available all the time. Insulated against the cold.
Automatic feeding systems
The most accurate and individualised feeding method of horses.
Manual feeding systems
Basic feeding system but does not restrict forage intakes.
Rest & Relax
Resting is important for horses daily cycle including REM sleep. We can optimise shelters and flooring to achieve this easily:
The right flooring
Comfortable flooring is a must and will encourage the horses to lie down.
House the entire herd
Generate natural shelter spots
Outdoor space & Trails
Constant foraging is natural to horses so here's how we can provide a year round surface suited to horses behaviour:
Year round surface is critical
Horses love a roll
A change in thinking about horse care today
Many forward thinking horse owners question traditional methods of horse keeping as being unnatural and not species appropriate. This has prompted a change in thinking about horse care.
Where traditional stabling may still be necessary for high value/ill/injured horses, technology from HIT Active Stable can be incorporated to meet feeding and social needs.
Horse owners look to the HIT Active Stable to provide horses with appropriate living conditions that comply with laws, cause less work, environmentally sustainable and cost-efficient in the long term.
Over the last twenty years, over 1000 HIT Active Stables have been planned and built adding to a growing number of very satisfied HIT Active Stable operators, clearly illustrating the quality and excellence of the HIT Active Stable.
The HIT Active Stable concept was founded in 2000 by Thorsten Hinrichs. He firmly believed that horses should live in an environment close to natural conditions and this rapidly progressed the concept development.
Hinrichs proves through scientific knowledge and findings that when managed correctly, natural horse keeping in a herd environment separated into functional areas is the most appropriate method of horse keeping.
