Our Testimonials

We are lucky enough to have an all-weather Flexiride arena with Equitex-Drain System membrane from Equestrian Direct, which is a low cost drainage membrane that works fantastically on our land without the need for internal drainage ditches. The Flexiride surface has massively improved the durability of the original sand and rubber surface that we put it on top of, we can now work say 10 – 15 horses a day down the same grid without having to keep filling holes in on the take off and landings! I work full time for Butler Sherborn as head of the Equestrian Property Department as well as eventing a string of 8 horses so time is always an issue. My Flexiride surface needs minimal maintenance and does not freeze leaving more time I can spend with my horses, and I never have a problem riding before or after work.

We had our outdoor complete Flexiride surface installed in October 2011, the girls are very happy with the surface, no slipping or tripping from the horses and no bruises when they don’t quite get it right (snigger). As you know we laid the surface in mid-autumn and after an initial roll and harrow to level it I have only rolled and harrowed it 3 times since as it bedded in, have not done it since March. We were surprised that it was usable a -10 degree frost in the winter.

We have the EQ8a, Turffloat and Hydrogel in one school. This surface is easy to manage and does not appear to move too much ensure a secure footing and level surface for the horse and rider. Once dampened in the winter retains the moisture and keeps a light ride. Through the summer it requires regular watering but as long as this is done it remains an even surface, it has also retained a light colour making the school inviting and feeling larger.

On using the surface for the last three years plus, it has not moved – hard use by many horses on flat and jumping work, wind does not blow it around, the sun doesn’t make it hot and smelly like rubber surfaces, rain does not make it soggy or wet or flooded, it does not freeze and even snow doesn’t stop you riding unless it is very deep – even then you can clear a path round the perimeter! Even now under the current conditions I know I can ride all my horses out whatever the roads and moors are like under these horrible wet conditions. I don’t have to rake it with the exception of just one worn spot, and if you don’t want to pick up all the poo during a working session on your own it does not matter! Very important point for busy riders.
