Footing check and laboratory analysis
Save time, money and nerves. With our footing analysis, we create the basis for decisions.
Your horses’ movement is tense? Your footings are too inelastic? Is there extensive puddle formation after rain? In most cases, the solution for your problems can be found where they happen, in the riding surface. In order to be able to name these causes clearly and quickly, we simply need a sample of your footings and some information about your riding area. In the ecora laboratory, we analyze your surface for mixture, moisture content, functionality and contamination. The result is a clear evaluation with valuable tips and recommendations for optimizing your riding surface.
