OPTIMIZING YOUR BARN WITH A BEAUTIFUL AND SAFE ARENA KICK WALL
As horse owners, safety is always at the forefront of our minds. We carefully choose feed, equipment, trailers, exercise regimens, and every small detail to keep our horses safe, healthy, and performing their best.
Designing a horse arena should be no different. Though a controlled environment like an indoor or covered arena is often thought of as the safest place to ride, even highly trained horses and riders can become injured from a simple, misplaced footstep.
While much focus goes to the construction, ventilation, and arena footing, an arena kick wall is also an imperative safety feature to include in your indoor or covered arena design. The kick wall lines the riding surface and keeps a proper space between a horse and the wall. This prevents injuries to both horse and rider, and damage to the structure.
Our horse arena kick wall features a curved design and is made out of high-quality wood to optimize safety. Originally developed in Germany, the curved arena kick wall has been a longtime staple in Europe due to its success.
Because of its shape, our kick wall keeps the horse at the perfect distance. With a regular kick wall, as a horse goes deep into a corner or turns down the diagonal, many times it will paddle out with the hoof and hit the wall. This cannot happen with a curved arena kick wall. The curved design also prevents contact with the wall and potential injuries for the rider.
Often used in boat building, the arena kick wall is constructed with seven layers of extremely durable poplar wood. Finished with two outer layers of Okoume wood, it is weather-resistant and provides excellent shock absorption.

Your riding space must be functional and safe first and foremost, but, you’ll want it to be aesthetically pleasing as well. Our curved kick walls offer a luxurious, modern upgrade to any indoor or covered arena in both aspects.
