Safety Footing: Collapsible Post

The collapsible post system is the latest development from Fornells Innovation department and offers the highest degree of safety for a jockey falling into the post.

Developed in collaboration with jockeys and trainers, the post that holds up the running rail is designed to collapse when subjected to a direct high-speed impact particularly a falling jockey. This limits the collision effect on the jockey, and substantially reduces the injury levels that a high-speed impact may incur.

Tested on automobile safety-rigs by independent engineers DV-Experts, this system has passed the strictest approval criteria currently enforced by Australian authorities and the British Horseracing Authority (BHA), formerly the UK Jockey Club.

The ground-anchor on this footing can be moveable or fixed.
