Priefert Lead Walker

With the snap of a lead rope and the 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 walker’s 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.
