Ecopneus has always put great effort in Research and Development. This hard work has led to an evolution of the materials used for horse riding structures, thus demonstrating the validity of recycled rubber also in this context. For example, in outdoor training fields, sand is replaced with recycled rubber to limit pathologies like silicosis and prevent damage to articulations and ligaments. It is an innovation already experimented in France which, thanks to the support of Ecopneus and of a network of technical partners, had been adapted to the Italian market and created for the first time in the city of Orvieto.
Feedback has been extremely positive from the very beginning. In any case, this technology is being continuously improved thanks to constant R&D in the sector.
