Labosport was commissioned by Ecopneus to work on a horse riding arena in Italy. The mission consisted in carrying out measurements on an equestrian surface using recycled tires.
Labosport used the OBST (Orono Biomechanical Surface Tester) to evaluate the surface. The OBST is an extremely powerful tool for testing the behavior of a surface under the weight of a horse.
During this study for Ecopneus, the technical elements brought by The OBST allowed for the improvement in performance of the homogeneity of the surface material and an understanding of its behavior towards humidity.
