As you all know, Equestrian Surfaces Ltd are a global company. This time we are reporting in from Sweden where we are refurbishing our 10yr old Cushion Trackindoor surface at CC Stud.
CC Stud is a professional centre for Breeding and training of horses up to Grand Prix level and is renowned in the Sweden as having some of the best facilities in the county.
The surface in this beautiful 66m x 32m Indoor Arena was needing some work after 10 years. The top surface which has been contaminated through usage has been removed with 225 tonnes of new surface laid across the top. What a stunning arena to be able to train in each day.
Our Installation team have been working tirelessly for 5 days to ensure the new surface and membrane is complete ready for the weekend. As you can see from the photos, the finished result looks amazing and is a stark contrast between the Sound Track and the old Sand and Rubber surface.
All credit to Noel and Rosie for investing in this already well established facility. We look forward to hearing the great reviews on the surface.
The outdoor 75m x 50m and 60m x 20m arenas have had their existing surfaces removed and 900 tonnes of new Economy Track surface installed ready for the 2019 season. The surface has only been down for a matter of weeks and is already receiving brilliant praise.
Rennie and Donna Wood who run the Equestrian Centre have said; “Due to the massive success of the Economy Track surface on the indoor arenas we have decided to change the surfaces on our outdoor arenas. The huge difference in numbers through the door due to having a top quality surface made the decision easy for us and we know that with this surface we can hold whatever level of competition we need.”
In addition to the outdoor arenas, Equestrian Surfaces have re-surfaced the walkways between all of the arenas using our Equi-Grid system with Economy Track surface to ensure the riders/competitors are always on a stable footing.
This week marks the start of the works at The David Broome Centre in which we will be converting the infamous Castle Arena into a new All-Weather competition arena.
A sad, yet exciting day as the 50 year old Derby Bank has been removed and the hallowed turf has started to be stripped off. A massive credit to the Broome family who continue to invest in their already incredible facilities and ensure that riders have the most technologically advanced surfaces and facilities available. The surface will be a blend of Silica Sandand Stabilising Fibres on top of the Risohorse Ebb and Flow System.
Works will be progressing into the new year, with work due to complete prior to the 2019 season commencing.
Last year we were lucky enough to work with a new facility in the South West who were set for big things, and through working tirelessly they have achieved great feedback from British Dressage on their facilities and their superb surfaces which are founder surface CUSHION TRACK CLASSIC.
This feed back speaks for itself but Boyton Hall also commented and here is what they had to say
“Boyton Hall Monks EleighOur surfaces are perfect thank you!! They have coped with all weather thrown at us this season from sub zero to tropical ”
Duchy College in the heart of Cornwall opt for Equestrian Surfaces for the refurbishment, and the end result looks great.
The old tired surface was firstly power harrowed allow it to be easier to lift, once lifted and airated it was re laid and topped up with a small amount of Cushion Track to bring life back into the older surface which over time has had a lot of use and footfall.
Doing these slight refurbishments to the indoor arena will increase the longivity of the surface. Maintenance of any arena is key .
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 .
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.
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
