DESIGN & CONSULTANCY

Three decades of design and setting out experience. The 1970’s heralded the start of widespread use of all-weather surfaces for gallops and arenas. Our business was established in 1974.

We can bring all of the knowledge accumulated over those three decades to your project. The location and positioning of your gallop or arena, the all important gradient of a gallop. We even have a unique computer survey and design program for setting out precise racing bends on gallops.

EQUINE SURFACE CONSTRUCTION

We own all of our own plant and equipment so we can carry out construction projects at highly competitive rates with our own skilled operators. From the all-important drainage systems to the porous tarmac layer and Equivia surface, ask us to quote for your construction project.

FARM & EQUESTRIAN LANE APPRAISALS

We are often called in on a consultancy basis to look at a farm or established equestrian property, to advise on suitability for equestrian uses.

We carry out full surveys, advise on slopes and gradients, drainage and soil types.

We create drawings for planning consents, write specifications for construction and compile trouble-shooting reports for existing equestrian facilities.

RIDING SURFACE MAINTENANCE

Diligent routine daily maintenance of the riding surface by the customer is a vital discipline. All of our construction projects and supply only orders come with a free annual inspection and the report which follows helps to highlight any areas needing extra attention. However, from time to time, surfaces need to be topped-up, upgraded or replaced. We always strive to carry out maintenance work as quickly as possible so as not to disrupt your training program.

EQUIVIA SURFACE MATERIAL PRODUCTS

We have owned the all-important wax application equipment for many years and manufacture Equivia all-weather surfaces to the highest standards at our own plant. We can tailor the product exactly to your requirements. Racehorses, show jumpers, dressage horses, surfaces indoors and out. For UK and overseas, cold climates and hot ones, Equivia surface materials can be adapted to suit your needs.

EQUIVIA FIBRES

The fibres which go into Equivia surfaces are unique to us. They provide the all-important ingredient for our factory manufactured product. The same fibres can also be applied to your sand surface ‘post-installation’ to give stability to plain sand surfaces which would otherwise ride ‘deep’.

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY

  • Used correctly, Seawalker is probably the most significant step forward ever in the training of the equine athlete…

    Mary Bromiley MBE FCSP SRP World-renowned equine physiotherapist
  • Cross-training in the Seawalker produces a stronger, more stable and balanced musculoskeletal system. This is likely to produce more confidence in the equine athlete and frequently a greater willingness to push itself that bit further. Walking through the water encourages the horses to adopt self-carriage. Working in such a way is an ideal scenario for all horses…

    Rob Jackson BVetMed MRCVS Veterinary surgeon to the British Endurance Team
  • We have already experienced many individual cases in the short time of having the Seawalker but of particular note was that leg joints and fetlocks tightened up in all horses, the effect was noticeable within days…

    Various trainers under confidentiality restrictions
  • A common problem with racehorses is that post-training the muscles can ‘tie up’ or seize. This is very painful for a horse and we found once again that a 20 minute session in the Seawalker before and after riding controlled this problem better than any medication…

    Various trainers under confidentiality restrictions
  • For the sprinting thoroughbreds a 20 minute session on the Seawalker before training would loosen up the muscles and we found the horses moved remarkably better directly after…

  • The potential performance gains of an altitude training strategy will outweigh all other forms of modern sports science interventions.

    Ben Holliss PHD Performance Scientist, British Swimming
  • At altitude the horse can work at a much lower speed to get the same cardiovascular response

    Jeremy Gask Trainer of Medicean Man
  • I can definitely feel the lack of strength, flexibility and especial lack of muscle mass that Henry is displaying this year compared to last year when he was on a Vitafloor each day.

    Peter Atkins Member Australian WEG Team
  • The Vitafloor is great for the horses warming up or cooling down as it stimulates muscles gently.

    Louise Cornwell Longholes Ltd
  • My Vitafloor is an intrinsic part of our training and fitness programme. All the horses on the yard use it every week throughout the year; this includes the hunters, eventers and my children's ponies. I feel the floor improves muscle stability and tone. It is a vital piece of equipment for Team Taylor and I would not be without it.

    Izzy Taylor
  • The new Equivia gallop surface has stood up to the huge amount of rain we have had perfectly. No standing water anywhere and riding extremely well. Our covered ride was dusty and uneven so the old surface was completely removed and replaced with Equivia. The surface has been absolutely perfect for the job. The new gallop on the downs (which we call the Side Glance gallop) has been great and we have used it a lot!

    Ian Balding After renovation of the Loch Song gallop at Kingsclere
  • The Vitafloor® is a great addition for our competition horses. It really helps to keep them in top shape, sound and healthy!

    S. Peters Dressage San Diego, California USA, spetersdressage.com
  • We use Vitafloor® every day and it helps our horses to recover after tough training.

    Daniel Zetterman Swedish National Team, Linderod, Sweden, www.springfieldfarm.se
  • The Vitafloor® is very user-friendly and practical in design. Since using it, my horses are fitter and more relaxed with improved musculature. It also helps prevent tying-up. …our family-owned racehorse ‘Mikado’ has shown great improvement using Vitafloor®.

    Bob Leonard Racing Las Cruzes, New Mexico USA
  • Peas & Carrots became racehorse of the year twice in Sweden with help from our Vitafloor®!

    Lennart Reuterskiöld Jr. Svedala, Sweden, lrjunior.se
  • We use the Vitafloor® on all our trotters and it makes them stronger and smoother.

    Helena Burman Trainer of Jackal Face, Sweden
  • I can definitely feel the lack of strength, flexibility and especial lack of muscle mass that Henry is displaying this year compared to last year when he was on a Vitafloor each day.
