Los Angeles, CA - Rain can put a damper on any sporting event, but California dressage champion Kristina Harrison has found a way to keep one step ahead of a downpour.
Though sports field tarps are more commonly seen at baseball or soccer games, Kristina began using Raincover Plus arena covers more than 10 years ago to keep her outdoor horse arena dry during a storm. It’s not just the mess of a mud-splattered horse and rider that’s problematic — changeable arena footing can be a hazard if a horse slips in mud or steps in water-filled holes. It’s not worth the risk of injury, and waiting for an equestrian arena to dry out and be groomed can mean a loss in time and income for equestrian facilities with busy training schedules.
Covermaster would like to congratulate Kristina on a very successful competition season in California and for qualifying for the 2018 US Dressage Finals. To keep here training on schedule, she will install the riding arena cover before it rains, and in the morning after an overnight rainfall she can pull it off to keep her training on schedule. That job will soon be even faster and easier thanks to her recent investment in a new equestrian riding arena cover and TarpMate Air Roller. All it takes is two people to inflate the vinyl tube with a backpack leaf blower, roll on the tarp, and then deflate, fold, and store until the next rainfall.
Pebble Beach Equestrian Center is another fan of the lightweight, durable arena covers. “We love our tarps! They have definitely cut down on our lost riding time and the round pen cover in particular has been great. They both work efficiently, and we think it has been a great investment.”
Far less costly than building an indoor equestrian center, equestrian arena cover can be customized to the size of the riding arena. Covermaster’s Equestrian Arena Covers are growing in popularity for horse riding arenas across California, and Covermaster was happy to be a supporting sponsor of the California Dressage Society’s Regional Adult Amateur Competitions this summer.
Last year, Covermaster supplied numerous new Equestrian Arena Raincover systems and many are already on order for this winter. With the rainy season approaching, now is the ideal time to invest in a time-saving arena tarp and roller.
