How Arena Surfaces Affect Horse Biomechanics

Every stride is influenced by how the hoof interacts with the ground and the various qualities of the arena layers. An ideal arena surface allows horses to move efficiently, minimizes concussion, absorbs shock, provides support, and returns energy back to the horse. Watch this video to understand how different surfaces affect the biomechanics of the horse. Save

Arena surfaces affect the biomechanics of your horse

An ideal surface allows horses to move efficiently. The surface should minimize concussion, absorb shock, provide support, and return energy back to the horse. To accomplish this the surface should have a combination of:
Firmness – level of hardness of the surface
Cushioning – how arena layers dampen shock
Cupping – pressure under the frog & digital cushion
Rebound – resiliency of the surface
Grip – tightness of the surface

Premier’s footing is the best we have ever ridden on. It’s the perfect combination of materials, provides superior traction as well as cushioning, retains moisture well, reduces dust, and is very easy to maintain. We couldn’t be happier. Premier Equestrian is simply the best!
