This month, among other installations, the one project we really wanted to talk about was our TerraNova installation at Project Ride’s arenas in Elk Grove, California.
Attwood Equestrian Surfaces was invited to Taiwan to deliver a short presentation on the properties of good footing. The CTEA is very keen on improving the standard of the sport in Taiwain, and is forging a relationship with Attwood to improve footing in the country.
Middleburg, VA — Nick Attwood, of Attwood Equestrian Surfaces, is pleased to announce his joining the syndication of Silliman Eventing’s Vagabon de Champdoux (James), a six-year-old French off the track thoroughbred. “I could not be more pleased and proud to be a member of Caitlin’s team”, said Attwood. “And we are really looking forward to seeing what the future holds for them both.”
We recently installed our TerraNova dust-free footing at Corwin ranch in Phoenix AZ. During the summer, temperatures can reach almost 120F/48'0C so an equestrian surface has to perform in these conditions. Wax coated footings really struggle at these temperatures because the wax melts and the surface becomes loose. TerraNova is a polymer-coated footing and does not contain any wax so barely changes as the temperature changes.
This year, we received a shot in the arm when he heard that our Pinnacle arenas were going to be used by the US Eventing team to prepare for Pan American Games 2015.
Last month, we introduced our ‘Green Arenas’, and were delighted with all the interest it generated. So we thought we would run a follow-up story on the topic.
Attwood Equestrian Surfaces has never been a company to rest on its laurels, and when a potential customer called with an unusual planning problem, we were only too pleased to come up with a solution. The customer was keen to build a new outdoor arena, but faced problems from the local planning committee who insisted the arena should blend in with the surrounding area.
