Monarch Horse Exerciser in North Africa

Last  year Monarch  installed a 36'0" Diameter Consort Plus Exerciser and Roof in the Benghazi region of Libya, we were asked to supply a senior technician to supervise the installation and fortunately we were able to complete the work before the unrest began in this part of the country.

On this occasion there was a considerable amount of work to do in putting the base down in sandy conditions and as the work was done by hand there was a lot of hard work involved !  Clients normally have the base completed prior to the arrival of our technician, as all the plans are provided for them to work to, this minimises the time the technician is required for and thus keep expense to a minimum. On this occasion they had under estimated the time it would take and not informed us that the base was not complete, so when our technician arrived there was still plenty to do, not a disaster fortunately as with the  hot conditions the concrete did not take long to go hard enough to start the erection of the Horse Exerciser! As you can see they were having a lot of work done so it was also difficult to get the component parts close to the base for ease of construction.
( Always something worth considering when you are planning where your Horse Exerciser will be sited).

Our clients who were wonderful hosts to our technician and very pleased with their new Monarch Exerciser, we hope that they have not been too affected by the troubles and that their horses have been able to benefit from using the Horse Exerciser.

Monarch Equestrian in Brazil

Time to catch up with some news from abroad, Monarch technicians have been busy around the world .Just before Christmas they completed the installation of one of our 54'Diameter Professional Horse Exercisers at a Stud in Brazil , as you can see the weather was much better than in England at the time and the Exerciser was sited in beautiful surroundings with miles of open countryside surrounding the stud.

The stud has chosen to site the two gateways in their Consort Plus Exeriser close to one another for ease of loading and unloading , but the choice is yours.

Once the Exerciser had been installed Lee,one of our technicians had time to make friends with the visiting stallion who was enjoying time in a paddock. Everyone made them feel very welcome and they were  provided with excellent hospitality during their stay. They have reported back that they are delighted with the Exerciser and everything is running smoothly.
