Horse Arena Maintenance
Our horse arena maintenance will guarantee your surface remains sustainable and in good working condition for many years. Through experience we have found that simply picking up dropping or carrying out regular maintenance can add years onto your surface. It is important that you do carry out maintenance. In some cases, you may need to resolve dryness to improve stability. In other cases a plan to resolve existing drainage issues may be required.
We recommend that you consider adding a comprehensive piece of equipment into your arena plan / budget if you want to get the most out of your surface. It is also a good idea to invest in a sturdy quad bike or small tractor to tow you horse arena maintenance equipment. Please feel free to call us if you require any advice about maintaining your arena surface.
We offer a horse arena maintenance program to ensure your surface remains level and in top condition all year round. Contact us now to discuss annual maintenance.

Common Questions, Issues & Answers
My sand surface becomes deep in the summer and too hard in the winter what can I do to eliminate this problem?
Your surface being sand alone relies on moisture content to stabilise it, when the moisture content is high during winter periods the surface is over compacted the opposite occurs when the moisture level is low in summer periods it will lose its stability. Using synthetics to stabilise and hold moisture during the summer months is key and will hold the surface together. The combination of using rubber crumb in the winter months will help prevent the surface becoming frozen.
We had a builder who used the wrong sand in our arena, it rides really deep and becomes unusable in summer do we need to replace it all?
This is a typical problem as there is so much confusion about silica sand. Sometimes we can blend the existing sand with a finer sand and use our dual stabiliser and get good results. The best advice would be to send us a sample and we will do some blending in house and give you the results.
My surface holds water but the drainage system seems to be working o.k?
If you have eliminated the drainage system the next thing to look at is the surface itself. Many sands form pan layers over a period of time which can stop water filtration, it may just be a case of turning the surface through and adding our dual stabiliser fibre with its unique rubber fleck to help prevent it forming again.
What is the difference between your dual stabiliser and others on the market?
15 years ago we set out to make the best stabilising product on the market after using different types ourselves, and this took us to using micro fibres, as this allows us to get more nylon into the sand. We pulverise the fibre so we can get twice as much in, than a normal chipped carpet fibre or similar. Then we take it a step further, and blend it with a small rubber fleck to provide life to the surface. Both of these elements create a better cohesive blend and prevent the fibre coming back out of the sand as we see with other fibres. This has now been installed in over 2000 equestrian surfaces nationwide.

Had our manège relevelled & then sand & Combiride topper added. Was well overdue but now looks as good as new again. Very pleased
Fantastic service and always happy to help, prompt at getting back to emails, arrived on site and just cracked on with the job. No problems at all and our surfaces look amazing and fresh again! Highly recommend, can’t thank you guys enough!
Combi-Ride are an excellent company to work with and the arena surfaces are fantastic and excellent value! Highly recommend!
Outstanding surface for both my arena and pens, highly recommended. Excellent aftercare service as well.
Top people , top service, top arena surface
I highly recommend this company . Colin and his team are very helpful and professional. I wanted a surface that would provide stability , not ride deep , something that I could jump on , even lunge on . After many conversations with Colin I took his advice and had the combi ride dual stabiliser and added some of their pro stabiliser fibre as well . The result has been fantastic and better than I could have imagined . I now have a wonderful surface that has now knitted together and rides like turf , the horses stay on top of the surface , giving a secure and confident ride . The surface has been down about 6 months and has surpassed my expectations , it’s been a dream come true .
I had a sand and Combi-ride dual stabiliser surface put in 9 years ago and have been very pleased with its performance. I contacted Combi-ride this summer for their advice on upgrading the surface as it was no longer riding as well as it used to. They did a free site visit and discussed the options with me. I opted for a top up with Combo pro sand and fibre mix. They levelled my existing arena and topped up with the premix. I am delighted with the manner in which the work has been done and the site was left very tidy. The surface rides really well being consistent throughout the arena with a good level of cushioning and the nearest to a waxed surface that I have ridden on. In my experience this product is excellent value for money and they are a good company to deal with.
After doing a ton of research I ordered my surface from combi ride. They were always promptly informative and helpful - and I asked lots of questions! My surface is now complete and I am so thrilled with it! A highly recommended company.
I highly recommend Combi-ride, they recently installed their Pro advanced fibre additive to my existing arena and it has totally transformed the surface, it has given it alot more stability. I am so pleased it is lovely to ride on for both flatwork and jumping, my horses seem to really like it aswell.The team at Combi-ride were a pleasure to deal with from start to finish and their attention to detail when installing the fibre surface was excellent.
We've had our surface for 12 years, it is used by several horses daily and has only needed one top up in that time. It is consistent to ride on whatever the time of year. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Combi-Ride and the after sales service has been fantastic. Very helpful and knowledgeable people to deal with.
Great advice and service, Colin is very knowledgeable and went through our options to revamp our existing surface. Very efficient and easy team to deal with. Love my new surface!
Colin and his team have made it Possibke for the horses to be worked all year round -4 here today and the horses are still getting worked, and on a surface we can trust.
Great product. Fantastic customer service and so helpful. Surface has been down just under three years and had to do nothing to it. Rides so well. Great with rain and living in Scotland that’s not a problem here. Amazing to jump, lunge and flat work. Highly recommend.
I used Combi ride 3 times, I have attached the photo of our arena its excellent I upgraded to full wax surface this time, it rides really well, does no go too hard but also does not move. Happy to recommend
Excellent service, excellent product, nothing is too much trouble, i cant recommend them enough. Many thanks to Jonathan and his team for the surface you have just completed for our 40x20 Menage. The result is amazing and we found the price very competitive too. I have no problems recommending them to any one else.
