A Simple Measure
For A Cast Horse
Anti-Cast Strip for Horse Safety
The anti-cast strip will help a horse get back to their feet when cast. The anti-cast strips fix to the wall around the perimeter of the stable giving the horse a foothold for their hooves. This enables them to safely push their body away from the wall reducing the chance of injury- an effective solution especially if there is no assistance available. The strips are soft and thick with vertical grooves providing a foothold for the horse when cast.
Simple & Effective
It’s estimated that around 25% of horses that are injured when cast either face losing their life or end their career. Frequently, severe damage results to the hip, pelvis and leg areas. The Anti-Cast Strip can help prevent this.
Anti-Cast Strip Details
Each Mayo Anti-Cast strip is 6ft long and 32mm thick made from a vertically ribbed Mayo formulation EVA.
The strip comes in two sizes of a 6″ or 8″ depth. If you would like alternative depths please call to discuss.

A 6ft x 8″ strip is £30.00.
1.8KG per 6ft 8″ depth strip approximately.
If you require a bespoke depth, we can provide individual quotations. Please get in touch to discuss your needs.
How to measure
To cover three sides of a 12 x 12 foot stable you would need 6 lengths of anti-cast strip.
The height of your anti-cast strips will depend on the size of your horse (this is usually between 90cm and 130cm from floor level.)
Sometimes this can be determined by any scrape marks on the stable walls.
How to install
Fit the anti-cast strips at desired height with approx 20cm gaps along the strip (we can supply fixings if required).
For brick or breeze block walls you will need to drill through the strip and insert wall plugs.
Cut the strips to desired length using a sharp Stanley knife.
