We’ve just got back from Dubai in the last couple of weeks where we attended the 10th Dubai International Horse Fair as well as performing some arena and racetrack consultancy work for various clients. As riding arena and racing surface specialists we know and understand how arenas perform in different climates. For example, an arena or racing gallops in Dubai where the air temperature can reach 50c and racing surface could cook at 75c needs a different approach to one in UK which may have to effectively operate between 32c and minus 10c. Leisure Ride Group has operations in Ireland, Finland and Dubai as well as the UK – so we consider ourselves pretty expert at getting a racing surface at peak performance no matter what the climate. We have specialist irrigation and surface additive technologies developed for riding arena surfaces in dustier, warmer climates to ensure ample irrigation without the need for excessive watering – to find out more for your Dubai Racetrack surface or Gallops just ask
2012 gold medallist Carl Hester talks about the Trojan range of riding surfaces, additives and fibre in our latest TV ad. Carl uses Trojan Dressage Turf for his own training facility.
We congratulate Charlotte Dujardin and Valegro for their new Dressage Freestyle world record at the London International Horse Show, with an awe-inspiring score of 93.975%. You may or may not be aware but this is Charlottes third world record of 2013 and goes to show what a supreme combination she and Valegro are.
It’a point of pride for us, because Charlotte trains on Trojan Dressage Turf which we installed at the training facility (shown above, with another of Charlottes mounts) 15 months ahead of the 2012 London Olympic Games and which continues to go from strength to strength.
Congratulations Charlotte from all the team here at Leisure Ride.
We’re delighted to be in the papers again – this time in the Gloucestershire Echo. Ross chats about the unique nature of our surfaces, and how we tailor them to a specific discipline. As far as we know we’re the only equestrian surfaces company to do this – which is why we’re trusted by top race trainers and olympic medallists alike. You can read the full article here
I dunno, you wait 4 years for an Olympic Gold medal and three of ’em all turn up at once. Leisure Ride offer their heartiest congratulations to local Olympic Dressage heroes Charlotte Dujardin and Carl Hester who between them brought three golds back to Gloucestershire. We’re actually bursting with pride because they train on our Trojan Dressage Turf at Carls outdoor dressage arenas at his Oaklebrook Mill Stable – we’d put the Trojan dressage arena surface down 15 months ahead of the Olympics. Well done both of you!
