“Many surfaces abroad lack the bounce and stability of a waxed surface, and without that, you can often undermine a horse’s confidence. Show jumpers would describe a “dead” surface as one when you don’t get a push off the floor. On Ecotrack you can place a horse better, the ground is level, they get the same feeling over a jump and the horse can do a better job.” – Ben Maher, Olympic Show Jumper #MartinCollinsUSA
