GP ARENAS PREMIUM FIBRE SURFACE
A good value surface and a highly durable material consisting of ‘equi-sand’ and rubber chips topping.
Our GP-SPRING sand and fibre synthetic surface increases water retention and provides a long term high performance surface.
GP-SPRING provides root structure to existing or new sand based riding surfaces. GP-SPRING improves the surface stability, therefore the horse will work ‘on top’ of the surface rather than ‘through’ it.
The composition of polypropylene, rubber fibre and elasticated fibres provide lateral and vertical binding to achieve optimum consistency and cushioning. Because GP-SPRING is synthetic it will not break down or degrade.
GP-SPRING is suitable for indoor and outdoor arenas.
GP-SPRING can be supplied for arena renovations and new builds.

GP ARENAS PREMIUM WAX SURFACE
Another popular mix - ideal for competition yards, due to the ‘equi-sand’ and terram material which gives excellent under hoof ‘life’. This is also an ideal ‘top up’ surface bringing life back into a worn surface.
GP-WAX is our top of the range sand and wax synthetic surface that is low maintenance and reduces the need to irrigate.
The three component parts of Redhill sand, fibre and wax combine to produce a surface that is dust free, retains moisture yet will not freeze and provides a cushioning effect for your horse.
The retained moisture prevents the surface from becoming dry and ‘riding deep’. Stability is therefore increased and gives a secure footing for the horse yet with just the right amount of movement to prevent jarring that could cause injury.
GP-WAX is suitable for indoor and outdoor arenas.
GP-WAX can be supplied for arena renovations and new builds.

UNDERSTANDING THE SURFACE
An ideal surface should minimise concussion, absorb shock, provide support and return energy back to the horse through three phases.
LANDING PHASE - The hoof touches the ground and comes to a stop, sliding forward and downward causing bones in the foot and leg to collide. Concussion creates shock waves throughout the ground and leg.
LOADING PHASE - The whole hoof is in contact with the ground carrying the full weight of the horse and rider.
ROLLOVER / PUSH-OFF PHASE - The heel rotates off the ground and rolls over the toe for propulsion into the next stride.
TO HARD - Offers good support but will not absorb impact shock.
TO SOFT - Absorbs impact shock but does not provide good support.
IDEAL - Good support and absorbs shock with minimal concussion.
