As horsemen, we love to talk about the footing. Good, bad, but never indifferent. Good footing can actually increase the longevity of a horse’s career. Bad footing can send you straight to the vet. Recently the FEI published a white paper discussing the science behind good footing. The same scientific approach that has been applied to Attwood’s premium blends for almost twenty years.
Middleburg, VA — Middleburg, VA — On July 8th - 10th, The Great Meadow Foundation will host one of the most significant events for the U.S. Olympic Eventing Team: the final preparation trials for the top horse and rider combinations who will represent the United States in Rio. And when those elite equestrians come to compete, it will be in newly constructed arenas completed by Attwood Equestrian Surfaces.
It is now six months since our all weather dust-free, polymer-coated footing was installed in a training ring at the world famous Jockey Club Estates in Newmarket, and we have been monitoring its performance over the winter months. The footing was installed in a brand new round-pen built alongside an existing ring containing a wax surface. The rings are used by local trainers to lunge, and to ride generally young thoroughbred horses.
