Setting the winning standard in equine surfaces

Henrietta Knight has a new Activ-track outdoor arena installed by Martin Collins

Henrietta Knight recently had her Outdoor School at West Lockinge Farm totally renovated and replaced by the Martin Collins team.

Henrietta had the first Outdoor school installed by Martin Collins himself almost 40 years ago. At that time the surface was a mix of PVC and sand and Henrietta recalls Martin living on site in his small caravan until the installation was complete. Today things have moved on and Hen wanted to take advantage of the developments in surfaces and opted to have the Activ-Track product installed. Not only did the team lay a premium surface but they removed the old surface, installed new groundworks and drainage, laid a high grade membrane together with replacing all the surround fencing and kickboards. Many a horse has started his racing career in Hen’s outdoor school which is used for lunging, long reining and flat work including the likes of Best Mate and Edredon Bleu. Nowadays Hen concentrates her time at West Lockinge Farm, not only educating high class racehorses but also breeding top Connemara ponies.  The Activ-track arena will get a new generation of equines benefitting from the secure footing that a Martin Collins surface offers.      

“I am delighted with the Martin Collins Activ-Track surface recently installed in my outdoor school. It was 40 years ago that Martin himself installed my first arena which was a mix of PVC and sand. It’s great to now have a brand-new waxed surface to work numerous potential star racehorses upon.”
