We understand that, when show jumping, the rider must balance the need for the horse to go as fast as possible and turn tightly, while still leaving the poles in their cups. Our show jumping surfaces are therefore designed to:
Martin Collins arenas are precision-installed.
That's why our show jumping surfaces are specifically designed to support the limb and hoof on take-off and landing, to avoid jarring.
The level you train or compete at, along with your horses' ages, breeding and paces will determine your ideal surface and show jumping arena size.

"Many surfaces abroad lack the bounce and stability of a waxed surface, and without that, you can often undermine a horse's confidence. Show jumpers would describe a 'dead' surface as one when you don't get a push off the floor. With Ecotrack, you can place a horse better, the ground is level, they get the same feeling over a jump and the horse can do a better job".

"It was a pleasure doing business with Martin Collins Enterprises. I was extremely impressed with their total professionalism."

"We are delighted with our Martin Collins Activ-track surface. It requires minimal maintenance and throughout the winter even when the temperatures plummeted to minus 5 or worse we were still able to keep exercising Olivia's ponies so she and they were fully prepared for the start of the Hickstead qualifiers. Without the advantage of having this surface it is unlikely that Olivia would have been able to qualify all 3 of her rides for Hickstead in the first few qualifiers of the year."
“I chose Martin Collins as surface supplier as the surfaces are easy to maintain and provide the best possible going for all. Riders appreciate good going for their horses”. Tim Price, Director of Addington. www.addingtonmanor.co.uk
