CLOPF® Fiber Footing Installed In New Indoor Arena
New Vocations, the nation’s oldest and largest racehorse adoption program, recently installed Martin Collins CLOPF® footing in their newly built indoor arena at their Lexington, Ky., facility. Martin Collins approved contractor John Garey of Instinctive Designs completed the installation.
Good footing is an important component in the program’s mission to rehabilitate, retrain and rehome retiring racehorses. Quality, reliable footing that provides cushion and the appropriate level of energy return to the limbs of the horse is a must when these horses transition to a new career.
“We are excited to have Martin Collins CLOPF® Fiber footing in our newly constructed indoor arena at New Vocations at Mereworth Farm,” said Sarah Coleman, Director of Education and Development for New Vocations. “As our focus is on rehabilitating, retraining and rehoming retired racehorses, we are thankful for such a forgiving surface to begin our horse’s training for careers after the track.”
“The work of New Vocations in retraining and rehoming retired racehorses is crucial,” said Glynnie Walford, CEO of Martin Collins USA. “There are thousands of OTTBs in need of retraining for a new career and we are delighted that our CLOPF® footing will assist them in remaining sound while they transition to a new life.”
