CEO, Hawkesbury Race Club

“The Polytrack training track works well at Hawkesbury where we have cold winters and hot summers. The general consensus is very positive with excellent feedback and the Polytrack is performing very well.”

Emma Booth
Australian Paralympic Team Dressage Rider

“It is so important to have a safe surface to maintain the sound fitness of our dressage horses which is why Team Booth installed a new arena surface in 2016. With the help of Martin Collins Australia, the CLOPF surface has created a consistent surface and the dream training ground for me which can be used everyday, in any weather. Since returning from Rio Paralympic Games in 2016, it has made an incredible difference to my life both financially and saving time, being able to train at home is great as we now prepare for World Equestrian Games 2018.”

Jason Kerr, General manager of Racecourses at Melbourne Racing Club, Australia commented, “Overall the Martin Collins Polytrack is far superior to any other synthetic surface I have come across during my 25 years of Racecourse Management.”

Michael Suey
Racecourse Manager Mornington Racetrack

The surface has performed above expectation and feedback from Trainers, Jockeys and track riders has been extremely positive. The surface is very consistent and has not altered despite various climatic conditions. Maintenance of the Fibretrack surface is straight forward and is carried out in a timely manner. The Martin Collins team have all acted in an extremely professional manner and have provided an excellent service, prior, during and following installation of the surface. The backup support from Martin Collins and his team has been excellent, as it has been with the Poly Track installation at the Caulfield Track.    I would have no hesitation in recommending the Martin Collins products. 

Katelyn Malleyon

Jockey Katelyn Mallyon about the Polytrack surface at Pakenham racecourse, Melbourne, Australia. “It’s good — it’s definitely different to anything else I’ve ridden on. There’s no kickback or anything like that and the track is playing even, which everyone likes to see.”

William Fox-Pitt

“I am very fortunate to have a Martin Collins Activ-Track surface on my gallop. It is an essential facility for getting my horses fit throughout the year and cold, wet or dry spells no longer interrupt my training. There is never a day I can’t use my gallop, and this is invaluable to me.”

Uliano Vezzani

International course builder for the London 2017 Longines Global Champions Tour commented “Here in London now this is the best ground for me. Because the horses are very comfortable and this is important.”

David Broome

“It was a pleasure doing business with Martin Collins Enterprises. I was extremely impressed with their total professionalism. Our new Fibretrack surface has received great feedback from all the riders who compete here at Mount Ballan, Wales and West Showground.”

Laura Tomlinson

“A good quality surface is hugely important when you are riding and training top class dressage horses. We train on a Martin Collins surface at home and to compete at a venue on a Martin Collins surface is fantastic as it gives me the confidence that we can perform to the best of our ability”

Ben Maher

“Many surfaces abroad lack the bounce and stability of a waxed surface, and without that, you can often undermine a horse’s confidence. Show jumpers would describe a ‘dead’ surface as one when you don’t get a push off the floor. on Ecotrack you can place a horse better, the ground is level, they get the same feeling over a jump and the horse can do a better job.”

Henrietta Knight

We are delighted with our Ecotrack Gallop. It is an even surface that appears to withstand all types of weather. The horses and jockeys love it.”

Richard Johnson

“Jonjo has built his career around doing everything possible to get the horses at Jackdaws to relax and develop to the best of their ability.  It’s no surprise to see them use Martin Collins surfaces.  They will help them do the very best for their owners.”
