- Fully synthetic fibres supplied in bales to mix into your existing surface.

Martin Collins Activ-track

- A  very well respected surface we have provided our customers in bespoke situations.   

MSA Fibremix  

This surface combination is becoming more popular in many yards, We do not recomend routine lunging on this surface though.   It's cost is in the same region as sand and rubber, which is a less sucessful combination in the South East as the best Equisands now available do not stand up so well under rubber chip.

This Fibremix surface is robust within its 150mm depth and is easy to maintain with our MSA HD Arena Groom.

Limited lunging is unlikely to destructure it.-Surface guide price only £11.00/ sq m

The fibres within the surface retain moisture well, insulate and cushion.

It will benefit from irrigation in a dry summer  - We recommend the economical installation of the Leakey Pipe system installed at the time of installation. Water is supplied by mains pressure only (no tank  and pump systems involved) and moisture is absorbed from the pipes installed beneath the surface by capillary action. - Guide price £4/ sq m    

MSA Fibrewax  3.5 %

This is our waxed surface designed for out door situations using our Fibretek Fibres mixed with Equisand with moulton wax added within a controlled mixing environment. This combination laid at 150mm deep is provided to create  the stability and consistancy required to keep this surface firm throughout the seasons.  It is better suited to lunging and free reigning persuits on a low intensity basis. Surface only guide price £17.50/ sq m

For Indoor Arena  surface situations we would recomend a slightly higher wax content.

MSA Fibretek 

The perfect mid length synthetic fibre to structure good quality new  Equisand to provide an excellent low cost, yet durable surface.  

Many used  sand based surfaces become tired and may ride deep in drier conditions. By providing our Fibretek bales and spreading their contents evenly over the surface we can put our mechanical tractor mounted  incorperation equipment over the surface to incorperate the fibres well into the sand surface to create a moisture retentive and robust surface. Fibre supply only £1.70/ sq m

Lunge

Lunge Pens

We encourage customers to to do inhand schooling in purpose built Lunge Pens. This will preserve Riding Arena surfaces for their intended mounted Riding pursuits .

Lunge Pen Surface 

This will ideally be a waxed surface and will be placed over a drainage bed and membrane a minimum 180mm deep.

Dry sand based  surfaces with synthetic additives can be used with an increased depth and higher levels of maintenance. 

Our surfaces selections above are all well tried and tested combinations .

Each of these combination has it's place in the scale of schooling intensity.
