Installing and maintaining a high-quality competition surface for a prestigious UK horse show.
When the Theraplate UK Liverpool International Horse Show returned once more to the M&S Bank Arena in December 2019, the Equestrian Surfaces team were proud to be selected as the official surface supplier.
As one of the most prestigious events in the equestrian calendar, the show played host to a whole programme of events, competitions and performances, offering world-class equestrian action alongside unrivalled entertainment. As a result, the demands to be met by the surface were high.
Surface is such an important factor in how horses perform. I’m very thankful to the team at Equestrian Surfaces who kept the ground impeccable at Liverpool International Horse Show. I’m sure this helped my horse, Eau Claire V, have a spring in her step, as she won the Am-A 1.25m!
As a rider it really does give you peace of mind that the surface is of such high quality, particularly when our horses' wellbeing is our utmost priority.
– Grace Wallace, Competitor at Liverpool International Horse Show 2019.
Seeking to provide a versatile surface which would lend itself well to frequent maintenance and heavy and varied use across disciplines, our team supplied 900 tonnes of Cushion Track Premier for some of the world’s highest-ranked show jumpers and riders to compete on, as well as surfacing the warm-up and lunge pens backstage.
With fantastic feedback received both from event organisers and competition riders, a new show record was achieved on the puissance and there were no injuries to report throughout the event – a true testament to the quality of our surfaces.
