For horses to perform at their best, they require complete confidence in their footing and a safe arena surface on which to train.
Ligament and tendon damage in sport horses is more likely to occur whilst jumping on an unsuitable arena surface, than at any other time.
A good show jumping surface is designed to meet the need for higher upward and downward force, heavier loads and impact absorption.
Investing in a high-quality show jumping surface will provide cushioning and traction, helping to reduce injuries, strains and slips.
Benefits of Show Jumping Surfaces
A surface that provides cushioning will help to reduce the amount of impact shock applied to the horse’s bones and joints, particularly during landing and taking off.
Show jumping surfaces need to be highly stable and supportive to help prevent slips, trips, falls and injuries. Soft or dry arena surfaces have less stability, increasing the strain on horse’s ligaments and causing unnecessary fatigue.
A good show jumping surface needs to be hard wearing and able to cope with the sport’s high demands.
For busy competition centres and professional riders, we recommend our high performing Daytrack surface.
