I am looking for some help.
Do you have a diagram and information about how to mount a Phantoms? I bought one second hand but brand new. Some of the information paperwork was there but installation was wet in transport so I can't read it.
I would like to have a mare near the phantom for training young stallions they come through here.

Our new barn is just about done and we would like to install this ASAP since breeding season is already underway.
I have a younger stallion that needs some training on it so I can ship on him later this summer.
Any information you can offer would be helpful.
Sincere Thanks,

Not clear what specifically it is you need assistance with. The way that you put up a breeding mount is going to depend upon the model/make of mount you have, so we can't really help with that as you don't say what it is. OTOH, if you are asking in what location you should place the mount, we can't really help with that either, as it will depend entirely upon how your breeding shed is constructed.

If you give us some more details we may all be able to give some suggestions! :-)

I have an Equine Breeding Supply Phantom. It has an internal AV but I do have a plug so I can use it either way.

I am just looking for your idea of ease of setup for a phantom. Things you have found helpful and things you didn't like with a setup. ie...mare in the front of the mount, mare off to the side, mare in a stall next to it, whatever. Should I pour a slab or keep it dirt and just pour cement on the pole and cover with sand. Etc.

Jos I know you have been at alot of places and I am sure have an idea of what your overall likes and dislikes were with people's setups.

I have the whole back half of my new barn open for mounting it. So pretty much a blank slate. My old phantom was outside and in a cramped location.

I want to make sure I leave enough room for a tease mare for training young stallions to mount a phantom.

Just looking for input and your thoughts on it.

You can check out the Stallion Station page on this website, it should give you some ideas of a professional setup. I personally prefer to avoid concrete floors, they are not very forgiving even with mats if things turn bad. Mats don't alway give a horse the best traction and can shift. I have seen several sites with shavings or mulch over dirt that were very nice to work in. I hope you will share photos when you get it all set up.

I have built several of the Power Pole phantoms as described by Jos on here and they work really well. My one, which I built to the specs, has accomodated 12.2 stallions thru to 16.2 stallions. I am very happy with that plan and highly recommend it to anyone.
