The Kurtsystem rail technology allows up to 10 horses to be exercised simultaneously, without riders
OVER the past 20 years Mehmet Kurt, one of Turkey’s leading industrialists and entrepreneurs, has been developing a new horse training system that is designed to aid the pre-training of young racehorses before they enter a traditional training regime.
His innovation, Kurtsystem, allows up to 10 horses to be exercised simultaneously, without riders, while also allowing customised electronic fitness monitoring equipment to measure and record the physiology of each horse during exercise.
The Kurtsystem prototype was installed on Kurt’s farm in Turkey in the early 2000s and has been continually improved and developed for the last decade.
The latest version of the Kurtsystem, which is estimated to have cost £20m, has been installed at Kingwood Stud in Lambourn and was unveiled at the end of last month.
