It is no secret. The true long term success of any arena or gallop lies within the quality of the maintenance programmes. This is again where experience and a good understanding of the customer’s requirements become essential when configuring the maintenance best suited to the desired use.
At Equitred, there are no “off-the-shelf” maintenance programmes. Instead, we asses every arena or gallop on its individual basis, taking into account a range of criteria including:
Potential usage: The spectrum of potential usage is wide, from private domestic arenas with only the occasional ride, to highly active livery yards and riding schools with 365 day use. Understanding how different surfaces behave under these diverse situations is key in scheduling the maintenance correctly.
Customer infrastructure: Another key element is in assessing the customer’s available infrastructure to undertake the maintenance programme itself. As an example, a customer with access to machinery may be able to undertake a comprehensive schedule of maintenance. In other cases, Equitred will manage and undertake a maintenance schedule where access to suitable equipment is not readily available to the customer.
The environment: From constructing arenas across the UK, Equitred has experienced how different environments alter how a surface may behave. From areas that are predominantly dry and gusty to those that are damper with frequent rain, configuring the maintenance correctly means that the surface continues to perform as required.
