The horses & I absolutely adore our Andrews Bowen Propell surfaces at home. Helping me to enjoy training knowing the horses are experiencing maximum comfort whilst jumping.
We all can’t recommend Andrews Bowen enough!
“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 Propell surface we wouldn’t be where we are with her now – she’s working at Medium and she’s out competing tonight 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 & Abi Hutton
“The surface at HOYS was very consistent everywhere and the horses jumped very well off it. No complaints from me and I am full of admiration for the way a potentially very difficult process is made to look so effortless. Taking a car park to a world class arena in one day is no mean feat!”
“Railed with Duralock Fencing and the Andrews Bowen Canter Track Surface, our gallop provides perfect conditions in all sorts of weather for schooling both young and older horses. The ability to allow long, steady, continuous work is particularly effective with horses who may struggle to come up the gallop and has been a significant addition to our training facilities.”
Charlie Longsdon Racing
“Somerford Park Farm has been a long established and leading equestrian venue with exceedingly high standards therefore our decision to engage Andrews Bowen as surface provider was not taken lightly as the high demand and varied use for the surface meant it had to deliver on its quality and sustainability. We are thrilled both with the surface and dealings with Andrews Bowen as a company they have been professional and understanding of the demands required of the surface.”
Millie King – Somerford Park Farm
“Thank you for our amazing Andrews Bowen arena, it is the only surface I could recommend and the ProGrade keeps the surface perfect to ride on. My horses are so much more confident and consistent with their work than ever before. Totally recommend.”
Hamish Tracy Disbrowe
“It was -12 today and yet we were still able to ride on my arena. Thank you, Andrews Bowen and team for the help and support in the build.”
“First class customer service, I’m absolutely delighted with my Propell surface. The arena grader is a high-quality piece of equipment and makes a fantastic job. I would highly recommend Andrews Bowen.”
“With the challenges of running a commercial equestrian centre & the volume of horse footfall we have through our gates; our surfaces need to be exceptional – our Andrews Bowen surfaces have stood testament to this. Andrews Bowen’s after care service has been extremely impressive.”
David Sheerin, General Manager of Wellington Riding
