Fibre Surface

Premium Ride

Premium Ride is an extremely high quality product which goes through a vigorous shredding and blending system prior to being wrapped ready for dispatch. The carpet fibre is sourced form top quality manufactures, which ensures a long life span of high volume use. This surface once settled gives an excellent even surface on which to ride.

There are many advantages for the horse and rider allowing effective training to the highest standard whilst keeping your horse safe from injury due to the overall standard of performance.

This surface will not freeze and offers good drainage for a busy facility with constant high volume use with very little maintenance required.

Maxi Ride

Maxi Ride is an extremely high quality and durable surface which goes through a vigorous shredding and dust extraction process prior to being wrapped ready for dispatch. The carpet fibre is sourced form top quality automotive carpet manufactures, which ensures a long life span of high volume use. This surface once settled gives an excellent even surface on which to ride.

Dura Ride

Dura Ride is manufactured from carpet tiles and carpet tile trimmings; this surface offers a very hardwearing and durable final result.
This surface is made up of high quality synthetic fibres. The shredded size is 30 mm, however we can produce this surface in smaller sizes depending on the order volume.

Why Use Fibre Surface

At Equestrian Surface B.V we strongly believe that a good quality sand and fibre arena outperforms other current arena surfaces. Whilst rubber gives a good impact absorption and can ride well in the right conditions, it can be inconsistent and often becomes dry, dusty and loose in hot weather. This is due to the rubber causing sand particles to fracture and break down, which reduces performance and leads to a shorter life span. Rubber is also environmentally unfriendly. Another surface option, woodchip, will rot down and so is not long-lasting. It can become slippery and does not provide good drainage.

Good quality arena fibre and arena sand covers all of the key arena surface requirements listed above. The fibre should be mixed into the sand, rather than left as a topper, in order to perform optimally. Fibre which is left on top of the sand does not improve the quality of the sand surface underneath, so often resulting in a poor base surface. The top fibre is also more likely to move.

Fibre mixed in with the sand stabilises the surface and helps the horse ride on top of the surface rather than riding too loose and deep, whilst improving impact absorption and giving a cushioned ride. In our opinion, it is the best choice for equestrian surfaces in all disciplines, but to give the best performance, you need to get suitable sand sub-angular in shape and good quality fibre.

Fibre helps provide a more weatherproof surface. It adds insulation to the surface; Nylon in the fibres, which is a constituent part of our surfaces, help to retain moisture within the surface, having the effect of both helping prevent the surface from freezing in the winter or drying out in the summer. Our quality fibres have the dust extracted thus helping prevent the surface in turn becoming dusty; a correctly maintained surface helps to slow the degradation of the sand and also aids moisture retention. Good fibres should aid drainage and be mildew and rot resistant. Fully synthetic fibres have excellent longevity, as they will not rot down, unlike wool or organic material derivative carpet fibres.
