Construction, use and maintenance of riding arena surfaces

arena surface


We have helped to fund research to evaluate training and competition surfaces for riding horses, in order that the likelihood of injury can be reduced.

The research highlighted some areas that should be carefully considered when constructing an arena. Read the leaflet here.

World Horse Welfare offer a small range of grants and bursaries to help support research on subjects that have an impact on horse welfare. Most are undertaken in collaboration with veterinary schools and institutes. Find out more about these here.
