A roof is indispensable to have the exerciser available for the horses to work in all kinds of weather. It is also the simplest way to keep the floor in good condition.
A good exerciser roof lets ample light and air in, does not trap any dust or heat, and gives no noise in the case of wind, rain or hail.
For safety and durability the choice of material, design and construction are of overriding importance. The roof must not form any interference with the properties of the fencing. Our “Gallery” type of roof (roofing over the horse track) has been designed such that we do not have to apply any wind bracing between the stands. This gives us the possibility to build each fence without any wind bracing crosses that can be a risk to the horses. For a “Pagoda” type of roof the strength calculation requires one wind brace.
This roofing covers the entire training exerciser and is equipped with a ventilating peak. In combination with the wind covers there is good, natural ventilation here without any draughts. The Pagoda roofing was designed for the Topspin training exerciser. These training exercisers are located in the ridge of the Pagoda roofing, whereby the inner space can be used as a lungeing space, for example. The Pagoda roof can of course also be supplied to roof only a lungeing area.
