We are a research and consultancy group at the apex of biomechanical testing of sports surfaces.
What we do
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
The Equine Surfaces White Paper
RACES were lead authors in the world’s most extensive study into the effect of arena surfaces on the orthopaedic health of sport horses
