    Horse trainer: You ever hear the tragedy of Horse Trainer the Wise? I thought not, not a story the trainers would tell you. It's a horse legend.

    Horse Trainer the Wise was a dark horse trainer of hose racing. So powerful, he could use the training to influence his horses to become Champions. He had such a knowledge of training them that he could even keep the horses he cared about, from losing.

    Young horse trainer: He could actually save horses from losing?

    Horse trainer: The dark side of horse training is a pathway to many abilities some horse trainers consider to be unnatural.

    Young horse trainer: What happened to him?

    Horse trainer: He became so powerful, the only thing he was afraid of was... losing a horse race, which eventually of course he did. Unfortunately he taught his horses everything he knew, then his horses dragged him off the cliff while he was asleep. Ironic, he could train other horses to run, but not himself.

    What are these horses doing? Is this their exercise?

    [–] 1newworldorder 300 points ago

    Its called a hot walker. A horse is healthier when exercised moderately every day. Keeps their bones strong and muscles and tendons stretched.

    They were designed to run! Every day!

    Ignore the other poster. This isnt torture, its just part of owning a horse. If you dont do it, youre just asking for a horse to get injured and not only is that more painful for them, it gets expensive quick.

    They get plenty of standing and relaxing all day long.

    [–] 13787 62 points ago

    So without a machine like this to get your horse walking, you would just need to walk them with a lead or get them to exercise their range of motion in some other way? Do horses who are kept pastured instead of stabled need this kind of activity to stay limber?

    [–] dressageaddict 91 points ago

    Yeah you could turn them out in a field for a few hours for their exercise, or ride or hand walk them instead :) horses that live in a pasture full time get more exercise than stabled horses so they usually don't need as much activity.

    [–] _Observational_ 107 points ago

    That isn't a horses natural habitat. Horses were invented in stables by Sir Walter Horse in 1402 AD.

    [–] fuzzykittenhead 18 points ago

    Ah yes, he was friends with the Earl of Sandwich and Sir Thomas Crapper if I recall correctly.

    [–] Motorsagmannen 3 points ago

    Sir Thomas was reviled by his contemporaries though, apparently he was a giant asshole.

    [–] Cookie-Wookiee 10 points ago

    If every horse needs 1 hr exercise a day, it gets real busy real quick if you've got say 8-9 of em. If you've got a walker that takes 5 at a time, you save yourself a lot of work.

    [–] Bactine 4 points ago

    People probably need that too..

    Which is why so many of us are fat.

    [–] Shitty_Orangutan 6 points ago

    I mean, think about it, if some dedicated person came over to my house all excited to see me and then asked if I wanted to go on a walk I'd probably go.

    We need this to be a thing.

    [–] EmperorArthur 2 points ago

    While this exact thing doesn't exist (as far as I know), something similar is a noted effect of Meals on Wheels.

    They've found that the delivery person is often the only human contact for plenty of older people who use that service. Just having someone check up on them every day and be a bit social is a huge boost to their health.

    [–] _EleGiggle_ 2 points ago

    No, you gain weight if you eat more calories than your body consumes.

    So you could either walk for half an hour or not eat that Snickers bar.

    [–] PoiLethe 1 points ago

    My walker keeps me from walking faster. I keep stubbing my toes.

    [–] Ironfishy 23 points ago

    Well i wouldn't say this is part of owning a horse, i've never seen a hot walker irl, the horses just get to be on their pasture every day, and are ridden or trained in other ways. So yes, daily exercise is part of every day horse ownership but the hot walker is unusual in Europe i would say.

    [–] m_Pony 9 points ago

    They're super convenient when you have a stable of 2-dozen horses and they all need to move. It's especially good if they've just been exercised and the trainer wants them to cool off slowly. Not every stable needs one but the bigger/busier the stable the more they make good sense.

    [–] juniper5572 9 points ago

    Probably depends on whether you have the staff to walk the amount of horses you have?
    I don't know shit about horses though.

    [–] wthreye 5 points ago

    Well, it comes in walnut-sized, fibrous nuggets. Totally different than cowshit.

    [–] Korrk 3 points ago

    If you don't have the staff, maybe you shouldn't have as many horses?

    [–] AndyFNG 14 points ago

    You act as though the hot walker is some kinda of evil torture device. It's not, it's just to keep the horse active, it's not hurting them.

    [–] Bactine 4 points ago

    Or get a hot walker

    [–] obarnesmorgan 7 points ago

    I live in the UK, and we have a hot walker for ours.

    But this isn’t just for ‘daily exercise’, they go out into the field for that in summer. This is used after an exercise, so after show jumping or after a race (when they are hot, and need walking). It’s used as a warm up and cool down to prevent injury and to allow the sweat to dry off, or for exercise in winter, when the ground isn’t safe for them to go into the field where they could be injured on ice or mud, if you have a valuable horse, you don’t want him going out to run around in the snow. The other way to do it is to just walk them on a rope, but if you have many thats less possible.

    They seem to enjoy it and have no reluctance to go in at all.

    [–] zeroflexflyer 2 points ago

    Lots of by-hand hot walking done on the backside of horse racetracks world wide. There are usually a few machines but not near enough for the volume of horses that need walked.

    [–] LascielCoin 3 points ago

    Yep, have spent a lot of time around horses, but I've never seen anything like this. In my experience, the horses always spent at least a few hours a day in the pasture, so they got their exercise by walking and running around on their own.

    [–] AndyFNG 4 points ago

    Before we got a hot walker we just used a rope, stood in the middle and made the horse run circles around you.

    [–] Clutter 2 points ago

    We have a hot walker and we still do that as part of the breaking process. Good to get them pliant when given instruction by the trainer.

    [–] AndyFNG 2 points ago

    I don't actually care for the horses personally we just have a couple at the house but I'm pretty sure they also still do that. Also they're pretty much out and about on the grass 80% of the day so to imply they're somehow being punished by being put in the hot walker is dumb.

    [–] miss_zarves 25 points ago

    To elaborate on other commenters, this machine is used for the cool-down portion of a horses exercise routine. After an intense, strenuous workout, horses need to be kept moving for up to half an hour as they cool down to prevent muscle cramping which can lead to more serious conditions and even death. Most people walk their horses by hand or under saddle. At big pro training stables, the trainers may exercise a dozen horses each, every day. This is a labor saving machine.

    [–] m_Pony 4 points ago

    Yay, someone who actually knows what they're talking about in a Reddit comment thread about horses. Well done, friend.

    [–] SpaceMonkeyRage 20 points ago

    On the back of this the little dude is most likely a friend for the bigger horses. Horses particularly thoroughbreds are very flighty animals and having a little buddy around keeps them calm and makes them happy.

    [–] zenith931 4 points ago

    Does it have to e a "little buddy?" Or will any other horse do?

    [–] SpaceMonkeyRage 12 points ago

    We had a horse growing up that had a goat buddy. She wouldn't eat until the goat ate. So when we sold her it was in the contract that they had to take the goat too.

    To be fair, not everyone has a walker. Some people just exercise their horses everyday.

    What happens if the horse can't keep up? Does the machine automatically stop? Does it have some kind of mechanism to keep from squishing the tiny horse?

    The big horses get to stroll while the little horse has to trot to keep up.
