This is a comprehensive and invaluable guide to the provision of all-weather surfaces for horses which covers the choice of site, drainage, construction, materials and maintenance, as well as a chapter on the common causes of failure and how to correct them. New developments of major significance are: a patented arena base system which has been installed as part of the provision of an arena for a well-known dressage rider and the continuing development of a patented turf reinforcement system, which has now been introduced at many venues, including Smith's Lawn polo grounds.

In the 1980's, Ray Lodge's daughter needed a new all-weather international-sized arena. Not completely satisfied with the products already on the market, the author utilized his mechanical engineering experience to experiment with different surfaces and filtration systems. Subsequent research culminated in the development of a system that serves all equestrian purposes and Ray Lodge has installed a great many of these on a variety of different sites. Having worked in the oil industry for 35 years and, wishing to make a contribution to the environment, Ray has teamed up with a company making a major effort to recycle used tyre material on a basis that is both economically sound and useful, as well as friendly to the environment. Susan Shanks is an experienced horsewoman who has worked on different surfaces and as an exhibitor of the products. She works in market research.
