Paddock for Arabians in Nieuwkoop
The sturdy horse paddock at the Kuijf family stud farm in Nieuwkoop is clear evidence of the versatility of retaining walls. Two horse paddocks for their racehorses were constructed using Bosch Beton retaining walls.
Arabians are a breed of horses originating from the Arabian horses from North Africa and Southwest Asia. The Kuijf family stud farm is some ten hectares with stables and indoor and outdoor paddocks. Several internationally-renowned horses were kept at this stud farm.
Arabian racehorses are among the best in the world and always need to be in top condition.
Two paddocks were constructed for the horses on this stud farm using our L retaining walls with heel. This ensures that the walls are sturdy and can withstand impact. The horses can run at full speed here.
The two paddocks are 12 m x 24 m and 18 m x 24 m and L retaining walls of 75 cm in height were selected. Fencing has been fitted on top of this ensuring that these contemporary horse paddocks also look attractive. Our client installed the retaining walls themselves using a retaining wall clamp.

Project in the picture
Manure storage on Texel
Silage clamps are also ideally suited as manure storage. On one of the Wadden Islands, Bosch Beton built two silage clamps for manure storage with retaining walls and an asphalt floor
Concrete storage is sustainable solution
With our concrete retaining walls we created a small manure storage tank in Doezum. With the right accessories and options, you can prevent the contents of the manure storage from coming into contact with the soil or surface water
Good roughage in organic production
Goat dairy Trix in De Wilp, Groningen, switched to organic farming. In order to be able to store roughage properly, we installed three large silage clamps and a manure silage clamp.
