Why Choose TurfFloat®?

Equestrian Direct designed the TurflFoat® surface to closely replicate the natural qualities of turf, mimicking the binding ability of topsoil.

As such, TurfFloat® provides a secure footing, allowing the horses to travel across the top of the surface and not through it. Fibres help to prevent the sand from riding dead and provide an element of life from the surface, while minimal kickback and surface movement, gives a confident ride, while also ensuring the surface requires minimal maintenance.

Ideal for showjumping and dressage, TurfFloat® provides even hoof support, reducing the likelihood of jarring injuries.

TurfFloat® can be used both indoors and outdoors, on both new and existing surfaces, as well as gallops. The light appearance of TurfFloat® makes it ideal for indoor schools where natural light is limited. It has been the indoor surface choice of Solihull Riding Club in the Midlands and has also been used at Olympic, and World Equestrian Games.
