Equine lighting

PROXIMAL - Lighting of equestrian facilities (horse arenas, horse stables and boxes, horse-trailers, equine veterinary clinics)

The equestrian facilities are mostly equipped with
conventional lighting (fluorescence, discharge lamps, …) for which:

Technologies do not allow the sought flexibility
to adapt the lighting to the specificities of the horse’s vision
and its behaviour.

Power consumption and life duration (maintenance)
have a significant impact on the operating budget.

Light in buildings for animal welfare is very important. A horse, by definition, is not used to live between 4 walls. Any stress attributed to the animal before a race is totally negative.

I want my horses to feel good before they get to the races or pre-workouts. The comfort aspect for the horses in the buildings and the boxes, thanks to adapted lighting, is a parameter to which the trainers can only be very sensitive.
