Equestrian Construction and Renovation

Fineturf offer construction and renovation services for all equestrian disciplines. There are a number of factors that influence the success of a construction, including site position, drainage structure and surface material. Working closely with clients to understand project requirements and budgetary constraints, Fineturf will deliver a professional, efficient and flexible construction by utilising our experience, fully owned plant and machinery and material suppliers.

Our modern, laser-guided fleet of machinery and equipment provides the required precision for both the drainage system and final riding surface.

Our experience in this field includes:

  • Racecourses
  • Menages
  • Gallops
  • Training Rings
  • Indoor Arenas

Equestrian Maintenance

Regular and end of season maintenance ensures the surface continues to perform at the highest level. Varying works can be recommended but would usually involve the following:

  • Deep tine aeration
  • Overseeding
  • Top dressing
  • Scarification – thatch reduction and improves lateral leaf growth
  • Fraize mowing – removal of annual meadow grass and tired ryegrass plant

Racecourse Drainage

Improvements to drainage systems allow racecourses to hold more meetings, especially during the winter season, and can help racing remain on the natural surface for longer. Drainage works include:

  • Primary and secondary drainage systems
  • Sand slits
