Second riding facility without fibers/textile completed

With the completion of the riding arenas for Godolphin Management Company Ltd in New Market, Great Britain, in spring 2019, we have succeeded in successfully implementing a further facility without fibers/textile in the footing in addition to the riding facility of Javier Salvador Stables BV in Valkenswaard, Netherlands.

It is our goal in the future to do without fibers/textile in the top sand layer as far as possible.


January 2019: Completion of a new Risohorse® Ebb and Flow riding surface for MET Oliva: 140 m x 80 m = 11,200 m²


December 2018/January 2019: Completion of a further Risohorse® Ebb and Flow riding surface for the Santa Maria Polo Club in Sotogrande: 9,980 m2.


In October/ November 2018 we finished the works for the Sevilla Horse Tour (SHOT) in Carmona, Sevilla.

Risohorse® ebb and flow riding surfaces now in Belgium since 2016.

Risohorse® ebb and flow riding surfaces now in Belgium since 2016.

In the spring of 2016, we received an order for the construction of an outdoor and indoor riding surface for the Stephex Stables in Wolvertem-Meise and for the construction of 2 outdoor riding surfaces with the Risohorse® ebb and flow system for Knokke Hippique in Knokke-Heist.

In retrospect: 2014 and 2015

During 2014 and 2015, we met further customers who were impressed by our Risohorse® ebb and flow riding surface system and sometimes became pioneers in riding arena construction in their countries:

You will now also find our riding surface system in Portugal, Turkey, Greece, Algeria and Chile.

Our riding surface system was also installed for the Costa del Sol Equestrian Tour (Mijas, Spain) and in the new riding centre of Javier Salvador in Valkenswaard (Netherlands).

Adena Springs South, Florida, USA

The first flat racing track based entirely on the interplay of sand and water according to the Risohorse®ebb and flow system by Dammann has been installed and put into operation on the grounds of the Adena Springs South Farm in Ocala, Florida, USA.

Training takes place on the new racetrack surface also under racing conditions.

Frank Stronach (owner of the Adena Springs operation) has declared it to be “the racetrack surface of the future“.



Global Champions Tour Valencia/Oliva Nova 2012

This year’s GCT Valencia took place in the new and modern equestrian center at the Oliva Nova Beach and Golf Resort from 4 – 6 May 2012.

The participants were totally won over by the quality of our Risohorse® ebb and flow riding surface which performed well in spite of the changeable weather conditions, thus confirming to the GCT organizers that their decision to relocate the tour leg to the Oliva Nova Equestrian Center had indeed been the right one.

Global Champions Tour opts for the Dammann Risohorse® riding surface

Following the success of the first Mediterranean Equestrian Tour (MET), the organizers of the Global Champions Tour have decided at short notice that the second stage of the Global Champions Tour from 4 - 6 May 2012 should now no longer take place in Valencia but on our riding surface in the Oliva Nova equestrian arena instead.
