Welcome to the USA Equestrian Safety Surfacing Pros
Working with Flooring and surfaces overall takes knowledge, experience, and time. Otherwise, results will be far from what is needed and won’t provide the aesthetics and protection you may be looking for. When it comes to safety surfacing in specific, there are many factors that will allow your space to be actually safe with the materials and elements you are using. At Equestrian Safety Surfacing, we review all of them with you and ensure you have all the actual important and crucial factors covered while considering how to approach safety surfacing services and needs:
- It is all about safety. Therefore, considering the specific material and type of surface will highly depend on the level of impact absorption, heat resistance, and other properties you require from the surface.
- Your budget matters, and since some materials can be quite pricy, it is normally wanting to think about an option that is less expensive and more affordable but without sacrificing safety and quality in the process.
- Aesthetics will remain important and be considered while working with your spaces.
- The space where your safety surface will be installed is equally important as the entire concept of safety. Since playgrounds, schools, horse stalls, churches, parks, patios, and more spaces have different requirements, you want to be careful about what you choose and why.
Our professionals will review all options with you and bring considerations together so there is balance in what you are getting and what you shouldn’t, as it won’t perform well in your space.
Unlike other companies, we like to address your needs and work on each step with you, so there is no need to worry about the entire result and how it will work. Hence, don’t be afraid of expressing your goals and preferences.
When Is Safety Surfacing Needed?
It often depends on the space, the activities done in it, and those using the place. The most common place for safety surfacing is playgrounds.
Not because they are optional but rather the opposite: playgrounds should always have safety surfaces in place.
In all countries, standards around what type of surface is used to provide impact absorption for falls and equipment of specific type will be placed and must be followed. In the USA, standards also vary depending on the state, but you should focus on how you want all falls, regardless of what height to be completely covered.
Now, other spaces such as churches, daycares, schools, and poolside areas benefit from it. Not all churches require it, but those with specific items in the area or outdoor spaces with activity and high-traffic purposes could make use of it. Furthermore, we help you make decisions. While other companies will be quite invested in what you should follow and do for your space without going beyond the usual recommendation, we are here for more.
While we don’t put out an opinion before yours in any circumstances, you will find it more suitable when you have professionals guiding you in the selection. Then, you get to save time and resources in choosing and understanding how the entire selection and then, installation work.
With this in mind, you will require safety surfacing in spaces where heavy equipment is common, high-impact activities take place, accidents are bound to happen or are quite common, and shock absorption is required in every context.
Feel free to inquire about this and ask our professionals before deciding whether you work with us or not for your space and what you can do when choosing the most suitable safety surfacing for it.
What Safety Surfacing Services Do We Have Available?
Our niche comes with some extra details and services to consider since the range we need to cover involves more than your regular spaces and the most popular materials businesses like to use in the area.
What we have done is make sure we are working around the essential aspects. First, you can request our services around the space you have: your house, patio, playground, horse stalls, and more. This isn’t a limitation when working with our team.
Second, you can come up with your preferences for the material to be used and how you would like to approach the entire project with the team. We are not afraid of listening to your request and simply working with the material of your choice:
- Rubber mulch.
- Poured-in-place rubber.
- Bonded rubber.
- EPDM rubber.
- And much more.
Third, we are here to work on the space in terms of requirements. Some owners don’t focus on proper safety since they believe all materials and options offer the same results. However, the level of impact absorption varies. Moreover, you need to make sure its durability and longevity will fit your needs and the area where the installation takes place.
Finally, you can place a custom request and work with our team to organize it. Therefore, whenever you are planning multiple installations, need to work with specific results, or want to include a particular material, we will be here to make it possible.
In case you want to have a better idea of our approach and how we work with you, our team can list some of the main services we have available right below:

In total, we have 20 services waiting for you, including the ones mentioned above, and how we can take some custom requests so that you can address specific needs and work with qualified professionals in all areas and elements.
Is It Necessary to Hiring Safety Surfacing Professionals?
This is one of the most common questions whenever someone wonders if they can simply buy the items and materials and work on the installation themselves. The short answer? Yes, it is necessary.
The issue with most safety surfacing options is that results and how safe they end up being will highly depend on a proper installation. While you can use high-quality materials and products, it won’t cover the entire scope of what it takes to have proper installation.
Therefore, this isn’t a project you should try tackling on your own but rather focus on how all aspects and factors involved can be covered and fully provided.
What professionals will do is save you time and resources and ensure your safety surfacing is actually safe. Otherwise, it will end up being a waste of investment and, even worse, lead to serious accidents and harm during falls or other activities.
Now, not all professionals are able to provide the services you are expecting, which is why we understand why some owners and clients are a bit reluctant to hire them in the first place. However, at Equestrian Safety Surfacing, we pride ourselves in being the most reliable professionals in the industry due to how we approach the entire process:
- We assess your space and determine with you what’s the best option and material for it.
- Work around the design and level of safety required so that impact absorption is fully provided.
- Make sure the surface is within budget and work on prep work.
- Start installing it and ensure you get the desired results and much more.
You will notice the difference and be able to work around any material and type of element you wish for so that your playgrounds, schools, equestrian places, and more are completely safe.
What Do You Need to Know About Safety Surfacing?
Before you decide to go for this service and option, it is always a good idea to learn more about the decision you are making, and we particularly like approaching this, so there is no need to worry about the material and the entire process.
First, while we approached when you usually need safety surfacing, this doesn’t entirely explain the entire situation. But what we can add here in things to keep in mind is that you can use it pretty much anywhere. Hence, there isn’t a particular limit but rather preferences and where some places cannot operate with it.
Second, there are way too many types of safety surfacing, and besides being split into aesthetics and designs, the specific layer they create is what matters the most. Unitary surfacing and this safety surfacing are usually chosen because of their shock-absorbing properties and how easy it is to maintain.
Then, you have the double-layer ones that offer a wear layer that adds more durability and protection to the surface itself.
Third, shock absorbency will vary depending on the material used and what option you choose. Synthetic turf and grass, for instance, are more for support, and while they do help with impacts, they aren’t the best for falls in playground equipment or similar situations. Hence, choosing the most suitable option will be based on this factor, mostly.
Finally, you must comply with the ATSM F1292 standards and make sure the level of absorbency is fulfilled while also working on particular regulations with the spaces. Fortunately, we support you with this process as well and ensure you are all covered and organized in no time.
In addition to this, prices will vary on each material, so carefully consider your budget and work around it as well.
Are Equestrian Safety Surfacing Services Our Main Approach?
Yes and no. Safety surfacing is an area that covers a lot. Therefore, we needed to adapt our services to the entire scope. However, when people ask about our name and the entire equestrian service we offer in general aspects, then the answer needs to be “yes.”
Equestrian safety surfacing needs to be carefully addressed. Otherwise, the issue can be quite a bit too much due to how horses and ponies are put at risk. Their living conditions matter, especially when you plan to ride them actively and prepare the stalls for it.
Our goal as a company dedicated to this area is to offer safe surfacing for your ideal equestrian arena and work on a riding surface that, even during falls and some situations, you and your horse can worry less about things.
We have a wide range of options for safety surfacing and equestrian arenas and stalls in particular. Hence, inquire about them and feel free to place a request if this is your main goal.
Some of the options we work with include the perfect equestrian rubber that comes in bags and bulk, but placing it in the arena or space will incur labor costs. For other options, equestrian fiber and specific sand can be used, the latter being often mixed with some other materials and components.
Additionally, we offer support in choosing the most suitable products and working around the suitable surface for your horses’ footing. Feel free to let us know any inquiries and how we can support you through this service and process so that all riders and animals are in the best areas and conditions.
In case you do know what you want to use right away, we will happily address this and find the products or deliver them right away, with or without installation.
What Is the Most Recommended Safety Surface?
Overall, rubber is the favorite material in all its presentations. However, depending on how it was made and the specific product and rubber used, quality can vary highly. Therefore, it is necessary to have certain standards and work around top-quality products and options in the market.
Now, rubber surfacing overall comes with durability, versatility, and longevity. Consequently, people truly like using it as it pays the most out of the whole investment and doesn’t require frequent maintenance. Instead, you can have it for very few cleanings and the usual services around daily use.
Moreover, rubber as poured-in-place, mulch, tiles, and all options will offer great cost-effectiveness and designs. You can adapt the aesthetical appeal to your needs and focus more on the design than the safety, as it won’t disappoint in how it keeps children, students, and even horses protected and comfortable.
Then you have the noise suppression properties as well as how rubber in all options can resist wear and damage. It is 100% heat resistant and won’t perform badly outdoors. In fact, it is designed for it. What varies is that options such as rubber tiles won’t be that good for playgrounds or similar outdoor areas due to how corners and edges won’t look good for long, leading to issues with the level of safety provided.
However, the material itself will remain in good condition and still be vibrant for years, even under a lot of stress and heavy foot traffic.
Finally, rubber isn’t everything, but it covers most needs when it comes to safety surfacing in different spaces and areas. However, patios and gardens or tracking and sports fields will benefit more from synthetic grass and turf due to their properties and grip for usual activities.
How Much Will You Spend on Your Surfacing Project?
It will depend on the surface and material you choose and the specific requirements around it. At Equestrian Safety Surfacing, we can offer you a free design and consultation for your space. Then follow it with an estimate so that you get the most out of your time and expenses.
We will work closely with you and determine what can be used, why, and how. Then make sure you have all aspects taken care of:
- The design and using high-quality materials.
- Working around the right level of impact absorption.
- Making sure the surface will resist the space and conditions it will be exposed to.
- Focus on the entire property and how you will benefit from it.
- Consider your budget for the project and find options without sacrificing quality.
On average, prices will usually range between $4 to $15, but for options such as equestrian sand and similar products, they can go a bit lower, which differs from equestrian rubber and fiber due to how backs can go over the $50 and you need to consider the general expenses.
Poured-in-place rubber, bonded rubber, EPDM rubber, and other options will cost between $7 and $13, which doesn’t tend to include labor costs from companies. In case you want and need it, we will focus on adding everything to the total estimate so that you can avoid worrying about how fees and rates just keep adding.
