High Score Performance Ground

Tested and Approved!

Scientifically proven by the Osnabrück University of Applied Sciences and the FEI (Fédération Equestre International):

The HSPG has been tested scientifically by the Osnabrück University of Applied Sciences and is monitored daily under pracical conditions at the Osthoff manor.

Optimal rideability properties are important on shows as well as during training. Not only do they influence the performance of the horse, but also the maintainance of the horse’s health.
That’s why scientific and practical experts have tested different material compositions and constructional systems under the umbrella of the HCCG and finally developed the HSPG.

The objective was to create a riding surface that exhibits a high degree of elasticity to preserve joint health, guarantees a steadily and optimally moistured top layer
and which can be maintained with minor efforts and be run in a resource-saving way.

All these goals are combined in the HSPG and scientifically proven.

The HSPG was tested by FEI Standards. The result proves “a very substantial and statistically significant reduction of cushioning when the mat is placed beneath the top layer of sand/fiber mix”.
The main conclusion of this test is that the maximal load the horse will experience when for example landing after a fence can be substantially reduced by the use of the elastic mat supplied in this test.

The tested materials prepared in a defined and standardized way is within in the FEI acceptable thresholds.
It fulfills the criteria in the FEI draft for footing certification step 1, design acceptance, track in a box criteria.
