The tag animal=horse_walker can be used for horse walkers, sometimes also called horse exercisers. A horse walker is used for exercising horses or to cool them down after training (so called hot walker).


Either place a single node or draw the area of the horse walker and apply the tag animal=horse_walker to it.

Besides the main tag animal=horse_walker the following tags can be used to refine the tagging:

  • barrier=fence, if the outside of the horse walker is only a fence.
  • covered=yes, if the horse walker is covered by a roof but the outside consists only of a fence.
  • building=yes, if the horse walker is a complete building with walls on the outside.
