“Such a massive honour to receive the Equestrian of The Year Trophy at Horse of the Year Show last night ! First para to win it, so I challenged them to a small Para demo in the future to showcase Para sport in this country! You never know….

We are proud to work with Sophie and continue to share her journey and dreams . Sophie trains all her horses on our Cushion Track surface which was updated last year and she hasn’t looked back, with her string of horses going from strength to strength.
Boyton Hall of Ipswich, Suffolk relaunches, and showcases some of the best facilities in the area.
This fab equestrian centre is set to boost some of the best facilities around and will house two outstanding outdoor arenas, an indoor and 40 stables .
Both the outdoor arenas have been re surfaced with our Cushion Track Premier surface, which is a blend of multi washed silica sand, stabilising fibres and coated with a high temp wax, it is the highest grade of our waxed surfaces and is ideal for all disciplines and competition use.
We wish all at Boyton Hall the best of luck in their new venture ……….
Emma / Lynn Scott choose SOUNDTRACK for the renovation of their outdoor arena. Emma & Lynn Scott put alot of time and effort into there show horses so this year decided to upgrade their outdoor arena:
“Our surface is literally amazing! Not sure how we managed before! Equestrian Surfaces come highly recommended”
Following the change in surface Emma has won the Supreme of show at the CHAPS final. The SOUNDTRACK surface will allow Emma to continue her training regimes all year as this surface can boost being frost resistant, and will that consistency her horses will continue to blossom .
Richmond Equestrian Centre have renovated their indoor arenas choosing our ECONOMY TRACK surface. Equestrian Surfaces are proud to be working with yet another leading equestrian centre within the UK, whose facilities boast the best in Yorkshire, and now our Economy Track surface is in each of the indoor arenas.
The Economy Track surface is a unique blend of multi washed silica sand and economy stabilising fibre, and with their indoor watering system this surface will ride fantastic, and has already had huge praise from numerous people who have used the centre from pony club to show jumping.
Ben Hobday moves bases and sets up a fantastic new facility which would be every riders dream! The surface of choice for this huge 60m x 40m outdoor arena was our white multi washed silica sand along with our Economy stabilising fibres. This surface option is laid separately with the sand first & then the stabilising fibre on top, then completed by being power harrowed to incorporate the two to complete one fantastic environmentally friendly surface.
This surface is moisture dependent but our current climate and with maintenance the surface rides fantastic and the horses love it, and performs for both flat and jumping .
If its good enough for Hobday its good enough for you !
Mick Appleby Racing choose Cushion Track as their surface of choice for their new state of the art racing facility. The new facility boasts a fantastic 1 mile undulated gallop sporting our Cushion Track, which has been built for strength and fitness.
We are proud to be associated with this talented trainer whose main goal is the welfare and safety of the horse which is why our BHA approved surface is ideal for the job.
Mick has had huge success this year with his string of horses continuing to grow, we wish him all the luck and success for the future.
EQUESTRIAN SURFACES HAVE COMPLETED WORKS AT MICHAEL WHITTAKERS YARD
The refurbishment of the riding surface on the 40m x 91m arena at Michael Whittakers yard have been complete.
Works involved rotavating the existing surface which had become dry after only 2 years and installing 300 tonnes of Cushion Track Premier throughout the arena.
The advantage of doing this is that the surface doesn’t require constant irrigation to perform.
We look forward to hearing progress on the surface performance over the coming months/years
1539 TONNES OF CUSHION TRACK PREMIER HAS BEEN INSTALLED ON THE INTERNATIONAL RIDING ARENA AT ADDINGTON
After a long week, we have completed the refurbishment of the international arena at Addington.
1539 tonnes of Cushion Track Premier has been installed and is already receiving rave reviews. Cushion Track Premier is our premium competition surface fit for all disciplines and widely used around the world.
This is another arena refurbished with Cushion Track at Addington with plans to change all other arenas in the coming 12 months.
Brilliant work from the team yet again
DRESSAGE ARENA COMPLETE IN PRESTON
Works are complete on a new 60m x 20m outdoor riding arena with Economy Track surface in Preston.
As you can see from the photos, the arena has been constructed with retaining board fencing with post and rail fencing set back. We have installed Gabion Walls around the top sides of the arena to retain the banking and not lose to much of the adjoining paddock.
There has then been a walkway installed from the riding arena to the stable block to ensure the horse always remains on a sure footing.
The surface of choice for this arena was Economy Track, which is a blend of a high grade silica sand premixed with our own manufactured synthetic fibres. This surface is a non-waxed surface which with irrigation with provide a secure and cushioned footing for all disciplines.
Great job by our installation team and another happy customer.
