Kraft is a company that specializes in the production of horse walkers. More than 1000 customers in over 30 countries have put their trust in Kraft over many years: from small farms to top professionals.

The DTHA Horse Walker was constructed on site with the help of a Kraft assembly team. The exerciser is a ground standing walker. It has hanging gates to break up the running track into segments so that six horses can train independently of each other at a time. It runs smoothly and quietly and horses train over a surface of crushed rubber.

The company Kraft Brothers, Inc. is located near Lexington, Kentucky with a manufacturing facility established in Winchester.
