Why Equarium® is the best horse solarium

Horse being groomed under solariumHorse friendly and versatile
Solariums that are lowered down over a horse’s back can be restrictive and frightening. Equarium® solariums are fixed to the walls, or may be suspended, and are at a safe distance, well away from the horse. So not only is an Equarium® solarium readily accepted by horses, it also allows access for treatment and handling.


Comparison of solarium coverageWrap-around coverage
Some drying methods leave the horse’s hair dry to the touch, but the skin, belly and legs remain damp. Incomplete drying is a source of several conditions, including chills and skin infections. Many solariums give patchy coverage, creating hot spots that are uncomfortable for the horse. The unique wrap-around coverage of Equarium® solariums produces superior broad, even coverage, ensuring rapid and thorough drying of the whole body and legs in as little as 10-12 minutes. All are completely safe for use in wet areas.


WashboxSafety & Hygiene
Our Equarium® solariums have electrical ratings that make them completely safe around water. Because they are watersafe, they can be rinsed off to maintain hygiene. This is particularly important when being used by multiple horses.



Vet checking horseAccess to horse for treatment, grooming and handling
There’s plenty of room to access the horse while it’s drying off or receiving treatment. It is also perfect when clipping or getting the horse ready for exercise.
