Arena & Gallop Surfaces

Equestrian Direct has been at the forefront of new and cost effective quality horse riding ARENAS and GALLOP surfaces since the growth of the equestrian all weather surface industry in the early 1990′s. We have successfully completed thousands of projects in the UK and many in Europe, and continue to be one of the UK horse industry’s most popular choices when it comes to arena and gallop surfacing.

We pride ourselves on providing a quality riding surface to suit your requirements and budget, whether for leisure or professional / commercial use. Our range of surfaces suit indoor and outdoor horse riding arenas and we are happy to provide full construction or supply the surface alone.

Through diligent research, we are able to source innovative new surface options, all of which perform to a high level but will have no detrimental effect to the environment.
