“We think the surface is really great, it’s helped us improve and develop more confidently. Working outdoors and regardless of the weather the horses are really confident – the Andrews Bowen Propell surface has the perfect amount of everything we want compared with other surfaces – spring, support, flow – it has everything right. One horse we train we were seriously considering retiring due to lameness issues as a youngster. She doesn’t have the best joints. If not for this surface we wouldn’t be where we are with her now – she’s working at Medium and she’s out competing at Elementary and Freestyle in the regional finals. This surface has given her – well all the horses – the right support and the bonus is it doesn’t freeze.” Charlie Hutton- Dressage Rider
