Horse Trail Bridges
(click images for full size)
Equestrian Bridges are often used for training horses on obstacle and trail courses for recreation and/or preparing for horse shows. An obstacle course with horse trail bridges will help familiarize horses with the different sounds they experience when walking over wooden structures. Our bridges are 3-4 feet wide and have 3 support stringers underneath. Wider bridges have more stringers so they are strong enough for horses and the people riding them.
We can build a horse trail bridge to the size you need and can build them completely flat or with a slight incline ramp or as a true arch built for horses. These bridges can also be built with a slight gap between the floor planks or with no gap. Please call us at the phone number at the top of the page or email for a price quote.
You will have the option of ordering either of the following:
Thompsons Water Sealer - water based sealer which waterproofs the wood, or
Olympic clear sealer - water based sealer with a clear coat sealant or
Spar Urethane - an exterior oil based varnish or
Rain Forest Wood Sealer made by Earthpaint Inc. which is a non-toxic paint
product made from all natural products and safe for the environment.
6 ft x 10 ft. Horse Trail BridgeThe bridge on the left was designed for an equestrian trail. It is 6 feet wide and 10 feet long and has extra 2 x 12's for support stringers under the bridge. Gravel was laid over the top after it was assembled and set in place.
8 ft x 6 ft Horse Trail Bridge with Spindle RailsThe spindle bridge on the right has three underneath supports and two 2 x 12 side support arches to make it extra strong. It also had full size 2 x 2's for the spindles and a 2 x 4's for the top rails. It is 8 ft long and 6 ft wide but I can build these horse trail bridges up to 20 feet long and probably 20 ft wide, using the same design and style.
The horse trail bridge on the left is also strong enough for lawn tractors and golf carts. This one takes more work, materials and thus shipping so the price on these is higher than my regular spindle rail bridge. To place an order for any of these horse trail bridges please call 479-243-0375 or email for a price quote.
Bridges delivered to tropical states or countries may which required the use of Rain Forest Wood Sealer made by Earthpaint Inc. so it would not harm the rain forest or the butterflies. This sealer is made from all natural products, is non-toxic and safe for the environment. It is available for all wood products on this website at special request.
