Multipurpose Surfaces

Multipurpose surfaces should be able to withstand heavy and vigorous use, no matter what the chosen task, whilst still providing the horse with high levels of performance. Our multipurpose surfaces are not just developed for a single use, they’re specifically designed to adapt to the various needs of different equestrian sports. They provide a firm yet cushioning surface that offers the horse a high level of support and stability; helping to reduce impact shock and prevent against injury. From racing to dressage, our equestrian surfaces are here to help you reach your full potential; you’ll ride on a stable, supportive and high-performance surface, no matter what your chosen discipline.

Surface Characteristics:

Firmness

Surfaces should be firm enough to support the movement of the horse, whilst still being soft enough to aid shock absorption – minimising concussion to bones and joints.

Cushioning

A cushioning surface will distribute shock forces effectively, whilst still providing enough resistance under the hoof  – allowing the horse to balance and move into the rollover phase.

Responsiveness

A responsive arena surface will return energy to the horse at the same rate that it was applied – reducing the need for the horse to use its own energy to generate momentum.

Grip

Surfaces should provide enough grip to the horse to prevent slipping, but also allow the hoof to slide slightly upon landing – this helps to prevent jarring and absorbs shock.
