ARENA UK UPGRADES TO CUSHION TRACK
Leading competition centre agree plan to upgrade facilities with new improved footing
As from 2017, Arena UK have gone into partnership with Equestrian Surfaces Ltd and in doing so have committed to the upgrading of the footing on the large outdoor arenas.
Arena UK has grown and developed over the past 10 years and is well regarded as one of the leading establishments in the UK boasting over 20,000sqM of all-weather arenas. Running such an establishment comes a responsibility to provide the very best facilities for competitors, especially the footing.
Having teamed up with Equestrian Surfaces Ltd, they will now be able to offer the Cushion Track Premier surface on its signature outdoor 120m x 90m arena and the newly extended 80m x 60m arena.
General Manager Teresa Stratford says, “when deciding to refurbish the footings, it is a difficult choice. We decided on Equestrian Surfaces due to the 35 years of experience they have, on top of this we were very impressed with the Cushion Track Premier they supplied to other large establishments and show jumping events. Knowing that we were buying a high quality, safe, consistent and proven surface was a big factor for us and to have their aftercare support going forward is invaluable, which made the decision in the end, relatively simple.”
Equestrian Surfaces director, Thomas Harper said, “It is a proud day for Equestrian Surfaces, to supply Cushion Track Premier to one of the best show centres in the UK. We look forward to building a successful relationship over the coming years and providing competitors with the most technological advanced footing available today.”
Arena UK will be upgrading the 2 large outdoor arenas in March 2017 in preparation for the 2017 show season.
