Horse Walkers


Consistency is the key to success and keeping a horse in top shape.

Consistency is the key to success and keeping a horse in top shape. A well-conditioned horse is proven to perform better physically and mentally. However, it can be time consuming and difficult to keep even a small group of horses fit. The challenge of hiring good, reliable help is costly and risky. Whereas utilizing a Priefert Horse Walker is a safe, affordable, and practical option at a fraction of the cost of paying an employee.

Priefert Panel Walker

"I did not realize the advantages of a panel walker until I bought a Priefert Panel Walker. It is a more natural way for my horses to be conditioned. They can buck, they can kick, and they can play, but there is nowhere for them to go. Since you are not pulling on their heads you reduce the chances of injury to their neck, legs, and hocks. Very important" –Al Dunning

This is the most advanced walker on the market. Pushing versus pulling, horses work naturally and comfortably without resistance staying mentally engaged for a more complete conditioning program. Great for warming up (in place of longeing), cooling down, rehabilitation from illness and injury, and staying in top shape without the concern of learning bad habits from different riders.

Priefert raises the bar for panel walkers by eliminating the maintenance and increasing performance and reliability! We have personally experienced squealing belts, derailed chains, and walkers that have turned into sedentary tie posts. With the revolutionary use of the planetary gear box, Priefert brings you a low maintenance, high performing, whisper quiet, and super reliable tool!

  • Available in 4, 6, and 8 horse
  • Low impedance, electrically charged free swinging divider panels.
  • Electrical charge, optionally activated at control box
  • Completely variable speed.
  • Slow speeds for cooling out and low stress rehabilitation.
  • Advanced speeds for building muscle and endurance.

  • Perfect circle round pen eliminates trap points and increases safety.

Priefert Lead Walker

With the snap of a lead rope and push of a button, your horses are ready to warm up, “take the edge off” before riding, get daily exercise and conditioning, or cool down.

From the Lead Walkers’ innovative safety features to the virtually no-maintenance and reliable planetary gear box, no other lead walker on the market can compete with the Priefert quality!

“Smart Lead Technology” helps the walker respond to horses that pull back by temporarily pausing forward motion decreasing stress on the horse as well as the machine. The walker resumes the original set speed after the brief pause. If resistance stops forward motion for more than 60 seconds the emergency shut off kicks in.

Speed Williams

"I will be the first to admit how much time my Priefert Panel Walker has saved me in the practice pen. As a team roper, you are taught that you only ride your horse in the left lead... To be successful, your horse has to be balanced. You have to warm your horse up in both the right lead and the left lead. With the Priefert Panel Walker, I have a program my horses go through to have them exercised for the same amount of time so I know they're warmed up properly. Then when I get on my horse, I just have to mess with him for a minute, get him backed off the bridle, and we're ready to go to work. It is a wonderful tool... I promise you will love the Priefert Panel Walker."



Chris Cox

"My Priefert walker is a great addition to my program. Without a doubt the best walker in the industry."


Larry Mahan

"I am a busy guy - a rancher - a horseman - a businessman. Managing time is a crucial element to success. My Priefert Panel 6 Horse Walker is an important part of my program - helping me to keep my horses fit, sound AND happy. The computerized programming is easy to operate... whether it's for a young horse, seasoned show horse or an old campaigner who needs exerciser.

This walker allows me to thoroughly warm up a horse before training/riding and afterwards, completely cool that horse down. It's also a very useful tool for working with young horses - introducing them to the saddle & bridle - allowing for a completely positive experience. Safety is obviously an important factor & when my horses are on this walker, I don't worry. It is constructed & designed with the utmost attention to detail - from the large individual stall areas to the skirted base to the misting & drag system that keeps the footing perfect. There is also a handy remote control device that allows me to change the direction or speed with a simple push of a button - while I'm horseback in the arena.

I highly recommend the Priefert Panel Walker - I won't ever be without one - it's a time & money saver. And best of all, it's made by Priefert - a family whose hard work, family values and excellence I greatly admire. From feeders, cattle working equipment, arena drags, gates, panels, roping chutes - if it says Priefert.. it's on my ranch!"
