Sep 21, 2017Uncategorized

When building an arena, choosing the right surface for your horse is vital. Here at Equestrian Direct we can help you choose and design the perfect equestrian surface for you and your horse. We are dedicated to providing quality riding surfaces to suit your requirements as well as your budget. So which surface is right for you?

At Equestrian Direct we have a wide range of surfaces including:

– TurfFloat
– Equisilicasand
– Flexiride
– Hydrogel
– Equicushion
– Ecoarena
– Equiride
– Equitex Membranes and Adhesives


TurfFloat is the same fibre that is used at the World Equestrian Games in Kentucky, so if you are a serious rider, this could be the surface for you. It is designed to closely replicate the natural qualities of turf and is the ultimate performance surface. TurfFloat provides secure footing, allowing horses to travel across it, instead of through it. It is ideal for both indoor and outdoor arenas and can work well on its own or as a top-up for your existing worn-out surface.


Flexiride is the most versatile and economic surface available, it is really low maintenance and a very cost effective option. Like the TurfFloat it can be used entirely on its own or can be used as a top up for existing surfaces. It is made from industrial strength synthetic textile, polymer materials and blended with cushioning foam to create a mixed surface to give you a secure ride.

Because we want you to be certain you have chosen the right surface for your horses we can arrange for you to test out a surface in your preferred material before you place an order with us, so that you can get a feel for how it will ride.
