Innovative and sustainable: Schwab developments for equestrian sport
We have been building riding arenas since the early 70s. Through intensive development work we have succeeded in producing the 3-layer structure. Our revolutionary 3-T system – consisting of bearing layer, separating layer and tread layer – was the first long-term functional riding ground, and to this day there is no better solution. If that is not sustainability …
Naturally over the decades we have further optimised our 3-layer structure. In the early 80s, we developed Power Ground® rubber mats for riding arena construction that not only offered a perfect separation of the sub-construction from the tread layer, and effective drainage, but at the same time also offered a high level of non-slip safety and elasticity. The great advantage: From this time on an extremely thin tread layer that imparted a completely new type of riding feel, sufficed.
Special ground system for every equestrian sport discipline
However, there is more. Extending beyond show jumping and dressage for every discipline and for every type of equestrian sport, we offer individual and perfectly matched grounds and ground systems, also for western sport (special cutting and reining grounds). Other specialities from Schwab are turf riding arenas with extremely shear-resistant, robust deep-root grasses, that we also pre-cultivate as rolled turf.
The perfect separating layer: Schwabengitter® Paddock and Elastic
An additional “product” of our many years of experience and competence in the area of riding arena construction is represented by the two Schwabengitter® Elastic and Paddock elements as the perfect separating layer. Thus for more than 20 years we have been offering a product that combines all the advantages of the Power Ground® rubber mat at a lower price. Thanks to our special structure you do not need complex drainage elements. Our product range also includes suitable solutions for paddocks, round pens, bridleways, racetracks and pasture accesses.
