West Bench, Faulder, Okanagan Lake West
I received the following from Robert Moore of Barn World in the fall of 2013 when we were seeking information on the efficacy of cattle guards:
Thank you for your questions.
We don't recommend cattle guard use with horses. Their smaller hoofs can allow them to slide down between the rails exposing their fragile legs to being broken in a panic/struggle to free themselves. We recommend gates with horses and other smaller hoofed animals.
The drive-over gates work well with vehicles that are pickup truck size and larger and of course a traditional gate would work as well.
If you have any questions, or if I can help with anything at all, please let me know.
Unfortunately, I see that drive-over gates have been discontinued as a product. Not sure why. I am also not sure that a conventional gate would work on Green Mountain Road!
