Outdoor arena looking superb in Scotland

Private yard in Scotland build a fantastic Equestrian facility to rival any .

Currently the outdoor arena is completed where they have chosen to surface with a  multi washed slice sand and stabilising fibre, the finish is superb. Following this they will also be surfacing an indoor arena with Cushion Track and using the Eco Grid system for walkways .

 

Arena Refurbishment using Stabilising Fibres

Recently completed refurbishment on a 20m x 60m outdoor arena. The arena was tired and feeling old, after visiting the site the team decided the most economical and logical way to fix the problem was to incorporate 100 tonnes of new multi washed silica sand, and install 12 bales of stabilising fibre .

The arena still had a usable surface which was used for the base of the bottom layer of the arena, this will have been levelled prior to the new sand being added.

The before and after shots are super as they show what a real difference, and the tired, old arena is now new, full of energy and immediately ready for use.

SHIRE HORSE SHOW

For another year we supported the ever successful Shire Horse Show. This show runs for 3 days highlighting the best of the breed within the UK .

The show opens its doors on the Friday but we begin the makeover of the indoor area at Staffordshire show ground on the Monday, installing the fencing and 609 tonnes of our CUSHION TRACK surface. Then once the show completes on the Sunday we begin immediately in the break down.

The surface of choice is the CUSHION TRACK, this is down to the durability and that under testing conditions it always remains the same and gives the perfect footing for horse, rider and carriage drivers 

ARENA UK has annual maintenance

Arena UK being one of the largest and busiest equestrian centres within the UK has annual maintenance which is preformed by our installation teams. During the maintenance our teams bring the track back within the arena, following this the surface is aerated using a stone burier. This equipment lifts and turns the surface allowing air to be incorporated within the surface. This allows for the energy be returned and the surface will ride as good as new .

The benefits of a maintenance scheme are many, but will increase the lifespan of the surface as well as allowing us to check the surface is in full working order and you are gaining the best from your chosen surface.

We offer a range of maintenance plans dependant on Budget / Surface and arena type. 

Beautiful finish on two arenas in Sweden

Our team have recently completed the works at Christina Lund Dressage in Sweden. This fantastic facility has both indoor and outdoor arenas.

The indoor arena has been surfaced with 340 tonnes of our SOUNDTRACK surface. This surface comes highly recommended and boast a unique blend of both stabilising fibres and wax to give the perfect energy and cushioning affect whilst schooling your horses.

We then went back on a separate occasion to complete the outdoor arena as the works were ongoing. The outdoor has had her original CUSHION TRACK surface re eyed from the old arena. The surface is in great condition as it has been maintained perfectly throughout the years. With the surface being lifted and relayed it has allowed it to be aerated and the energy has been returned almost making it look brand new .

 

Kirkton Equestrian

New facility Kirkton Equestrian, the new base for Douglas Duffin Showjumping install a brand new indoor school.

The facilities are second to none, and within the newly built 60m x 40m indoor arena the team opted for our CUSHION TRACK CLASSIC. Douglas has always trained his horses on Equestrian Surfaces surfaces, so wanted to continue to use surfaces he trusted, as his string of horses continue to grow and gain their fantastic results.

The arena and surface looks superb, and we wish Kirkton Equestrian, Douglas and the whole team the best of luck with their new venture.

The arena had the top inches of tired worn out surface removed, the lower surface was then power harrowed to rejuvenate and new laid on top. The arena now looks fantastic ready for the open day on the Saturday 3rd February .

 

Leading Show Jumper Nigel Coupe gets a re vamp!

Leading showjumper Nigel Coupe chooses to go with Equestrian Surfaces Ltd for a refurbishment of their indoor arena .

The indoor arena was feeling tired and the surface was not giving the energy return Nigel thought it should for the training which was taking place on the indoor. The surface was installed some years ago from a competitor, and the surface over time had become tried and compact, this is common with a lot of waxed surfaces. When this happens the surface will not give any energy return and is quite unforgiving on the horses limbs, this becomes even more apparent when jumping. In worst case senario horses loose their confidence over time.

Following a site visit we found the best course of action was to remove the excess fibre which had accumulated over time, and then break up the compacted waxed surface, this took some time, it was then re levelled and graded for immediate use. From the pictures you can see the difference and you can see the more loosened surface which has been performing great since completion !
