This was a supply and installation contract with a private client based in their Sussex yard. The requirement was to supply and install two riding arena surfaces to sussex, with limited access into the yard due to a tight lane. The client after much research into all the big name surfaces chose Trojan Dressage Turf for their dressage horses because it offers unrivalled ride characteristics, longevity, durability and ease of care.
At Leisure Ride we offer a full supply and installation service, meaning your surface is supplied, delivered and installed with the minimum of hassle, mess or fuss. We can overcome logistical issues with a bit of forward planning and some creative use of our fleet of vehicles and workforce. For this particular job we stockpiled the surface at a nearby artic lorry-friendly location, then used our smaller tipper truck to take the surface into the yard. We then transferred this to our 6t dumper for the last leg.
This surface, supplied and installed into a pre-built arena – was delivered and installed in one week, having been mixed the previous week. This included installation of a membrane on top of a pre-prepared base, plus supply and installation of surface for the 50ft lunge pen.
We even took the time and effort to tidy the entrance, plus create a walkway between lunge pen and area – because if its worth doing it’s worth doing properly.
