Posted by ricky26 on September 22nd, 2017
The fitness, health and performance of a horse are largely dependent on the arena surface it trains upon. Whether the horse is used for recreational riding, racing or any other commercial purpose; it is extremely important for the horse to undergo rigorous contact training on the equestrian arena surface to boost its physical development and avoid injuries.
Are the least costly of all equestrian surfaces but are the least durable and have the shortest life span in comparison with other surfaces. Wood chips and fibres can be used for indoor or outdoor arenas.
As compared to the wooden surfaces, it is a long lasting alternative. It requires less maintenance and rarely gets waterlogged or dried out. Rubber surfaces do not freeze and are dust free. Their use provides an alternative to recycling vehicular tires and is the most comfortable surface to ride and even saves from injuries on falling on the surface.
Used traditionally as solo, but now they are used with mixtures. It is all weather friendly and extremely good for galloping.
Usually a mixture of sand and synthetic fibres treated with wax coating require less maintenance and imitate turf and allow the bounce and impact absorption more than anything.
