Anti Cast Strips
An anti cast strip is 1.8m long x 13cm wide (6’ x 5”) and simply nailed to the wall with five clout nails or our rivets M120 for non wood walls. Steel screws are not recommended, as they can cause hoof damage.
Height is not critical, so long as it is somewhere in the score marks left by hooves. When a horse becomes cast it scrabbles against the slippery wall for a foothold to enable it to lever itself away from the wall.
The anti cast strip is made from thick, soft, vertically ribbed EVA to give sufficient purchase to hooves, enabling the horse to push itself over and back into the centre of the stable safely. It has proven to be a most efficient anti cast mechanism that gives owners peace of mind.
It is not only extremely efficient at helping cast horses recover, but it is also highly cost effective, for it eliminates the need for any banks. A bank uses 3-4 bales of shavings and this is no longer required when using the M12 anti casting strips. Less bedding also means substantially reduced mucking out times.
