Show Jumping Surfaces
Whether you’re out competing or simply training at home, a good show jumping surface should provide your horse with a safe and secure footing that helps to build confidence and improve performance. Injuries, such as ligament and tendon damage, are more likely to occur when jumping on an unsuitable equestrian surface than at any other time. This is mainly due to the increased upward and downward forces that are applied during landings, take-offs and when performing tight turns at speed. Investing in a high-quality riding surface, which provides the correct balance of stability, energy return and grip, will allow your horse to work to the best of its ability and help to reduce the risk of injury.
