Equestrian sports such as show jumping or track racing require the surface to be well designed and managed in order to minimize the risk of injury to the horse.
For several years Labosport has been working alongside bio mechanics experts from across the world to develop a unique expertise in equestrian surfaces.
Our equestrian surfaces testing systems are based on the latest scientific work.
Testing uses specialized equipment that accurately reproduces the impact of a hoof in contact with the ground (angle, speed, energy). The device precisely measures the response of the surface using a number of sensors, allowing us to characterize hardness, flexibility, adherence and homogeneity of the surface, as felt by the horse and rider.
