Horse riding is my passion since my childhood and as you all know that it flows in the veins of the country as well. It is known as the second largest spectator sport in Great Britain. It’s probably one of the oldest too. I live in my farmhouse and it had a poor looking barn with and uneven terrain where I used tried ride halfheartedly. You know passion has no limits, so a secret plan was echoing in my mind and I was quietly saving for it. I was thinking about horse arena construction through trained hands. A friend of mine told me about some good professionals how could turn my haphazard ground into some serious rehearsal theater. After dreaming and awaiting a lot, finally that day came when my meeting was arranged and I was silent but overjoyed insides, quietly watching those guys taking measurement of my spare land. They also took a detailed notice of rusting barn and the very next day they came up with real big plans. They explained to me the whole process, gave an estimated completion time and then they were staring at me just waiting for my go. What in the world could stop me from saying “let’s go” and they went like daggers from the bows. Every person took charge of his duties and started working at once.
Though it was drastic measure but let me explain it in my words what they did. It of course requires too much care and vast experience to build good horse arena surfaces, but generally saying they performed three major steps.
Firs sept was digging and leveling the field to properly laydown rest of the layers. They did it faster than I expected the covered the whole ground with rolling stones, Leveled them and the laid down a layer of membrane over the stone. And I began to feel like things are getting in shape.
applying an appropriate layer. Next sept was quite simiple to me and that was laying down silica sand over the membrane. They explained to me it is not as simple as it looks. It takes much care in the selection of sand and evenly.
And then come the final and the most exiting stept of applying a rubber layer over it. Then nicely spreading and made my dream come true with that. It’s hard to believe and still surpicess me and my friends that is that same backyard wher you could not even walk comfortbaly. Now now I can ride smothly. Me and my horses are really thankful to these guys. They have applied good PVC and Rubber layers over the barn and gave it a much longer life. It was really a satisfactory work.
I write because I believe it is the best way of depicting my inner self. I have been writing for long on several topics and issues that I observe around me. To me, writing is similar to speaking but to a bigger audience. British people’s love for riding was convincing enough, so I decided to write about horse riding & equestrian surface, and I have put my efforts to convey my message to the readers and to deliver as much information possible, in my blog so, that it may amuse as well as add to the reader’s knowledge.
