After a completely horrific experience with a well-known arena builder, Premier Equestrian guided us to Tony Judge Olympia Footing. They walked in to quite a mess and turned it into something that truly reflects the perfectionist nature of both my business and Premier Equestrian. Thanks to Heidi and Tony, my top horses now have a top surface!Laura Graves

How Arena Surfaces Affect Horse Biomechanics
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
