Horse Racing Surfaces
We know how important it is to have all-weather horse racing surfaces that are constructed with the horse’s well-being at heart. Horses and racehorses need to be able to exercise safely: apart from speed, stamina is crucial in horse racing. Daily gallops help in building and maintaining this stamina over time.
Thankfully, our expert team will construct your horse racing arena surfaces so that they can be the ideal solution for your horse’s exercise needs all year-round.
All our horse racing arena surfaces are tried, tested and are ultimately safe to give your horse the perfect place to train and exercise. Furthermore, we can talk you through which horse racing surface will work best for your budget and how much space you need.
What Are Gallop Surfaces Made Of?
Gallop surfaces are typically made of silica sand, fibre and rubber surfaces. Only quality materials are used in the construction of gallop surfaces to offer superb levels of grip and shock absorption in all weather conditions.
What is The Best Surface For Horse Racing?
Dirt is argued to be the best horse racing surface. It’s generally more practical than maintaining grass and more affordable than installing artificial surfaces. Grass also gets damaged quite easily during rainy weather conditions.
Do Race Horses Run Faster on Grass Or Dirt?
Grass, compared to dirt, is firmer and faster. Some horse races are on grass purely for the reason that it adds variety and excitement to a race. Grass is also more forgiving than dirt surfaces as the horses hoof doesn’t bog down, like they often do on dirt surfaces, which often results in faster races.
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.
