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. Since the facility is in rolling green countryside, this meant that the riding surface needed to be green. Within a short space of time we developed a green coloured footing, that resists fading, and does not wash out in rain. The project is due to start this summer so we’ll report back when the new surface has been installed.
