Upcycling: rubber mats and terrace floor => pony catwalk

pony at the new trail

Although our ponies have an entire hectare of paddock trail during winter, the trails around the east and west meadows are usually only available from mid-May. Some passages lie very low and get quite squishy. But anyone with a natural soil paddock for his horses will be familiar with this phenomenon.

In order to gain at least access to our guest paddocks, we have dismantled our terrace. Best Bangkirai combined with rubber mats from our rocker production and an old cattle barn now ensure our horses can traverse the passage on dry hooves – as long as they do not try to nibble the grass right off the walkway. This picture show quite clearly what said passage looks like after only 14 hours of light rain. And we haven’t had any rain for a long time before…
