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
