Increased demand for horse solariums
A large part of today's horse husbandry is based on pure barn or paddock stabling with often limited grazing. Especially during the winter months, the physical activity of the horse often takes place indoors, so that the natural sunlight is missing. These circumstances do not correspond with the traditional way of a horse's life, and the risk of deficiency symptoms (e.g. lack of vitamin D production) should not be underestimated.
The first horse solariums were introduced to the market more than 30 years ago. Experienced riders, breeders and veterinarians recognised the healing effects of light therapy and as a result, the first devices were created. The infrared heat radiation was mainly used during the colder seasons, whereas, today horse solariums are utilised all year round, due to their many benefits.
