Research & development
Innovation is at the core of everything we do at Equestrian Direct. Our company was founded with the goal to create the best-in-class equestrian surfaces – and we are still leading the field three decades on.
Manufacturing is conducted in UK-based accredited and certified facilities with products produced to the highest specification to ensure quality and consistency. We have spent decades refining our facilities to ensure full transparency of the supply chain, as well as traceability from raw materials to the finished goods.
Product development is shaped by the latest research and we are recognised as leaders in the field with our surfaces cited in peer-reviewed scientific journals, used in the Olympic Games and regularly recommended by leading veterinary professionals.
Many other companies do not have the focus on innovation, our R&D expertise and the manufacturing connections to create best-in-class products.
Longevity & durability
When you buy from Equestrian Direct you do so safe in the knowledge that you are purchasing the longest-lasting product on the market. This sets us apart from the rest.
We have thousands of clients who are working their horses day in, day out on a surface that was laid two decades ago. Our products are formulated to last, with minimal foam keeping the surface stable and in place. The cushioning technology built into our surfaces protects legs and joints year in, year out and our hero product, Flexiride, is a true all-rounder that can be used in all conditions and with almost zero maintenance.
Without visibility of the supply chain or transparency on the raw materials used, it can be hard to know exactly what you are buying. Other products on the market are often poorly sourced and formulated with unknown and low quality materials. The result is an inconsistent and unstable surface that degrades quickly, risking the welfare of your horse.
Never, ever from waste
A proven formula
As a forerunner with more than 30 years’ innovation in the equestrian surface industry, you can trust Equestrian Direct to deliver a best-in-class product that will be safe and long lasting. We have a network of yards, competition venues and professional riders across the country that have been using our products for decades. They will happily speak with you about their experiences – they are not incentivised to do so! – and you can even ride before you buy to put our product on the line before committing.
