We are a research and consultancy group at the apex of biomechanical and mechanical testing of sports surfaces.Learn More
On site testing can be carried out to characterise the functional properties of an equine surface using mechanical testing equipment
Laboratory based testing can be used to determine the composition and specific performance aspects of surface samples under controlled conditions
The movement or loading response of a horse to an environment or equipment can be determined using kinematic and kinetic measurement techniques
RACES have built an Orono Biomechanical Surface Tester (OBST). This equipment assesses surface properties in more detail than any other similar equipment on the planet.
