DISCLAIMER

Our riding surfaces are made from a blend of post industrial and post consumer carpets and may be suitable for use in a number of applications. Whilst effort is taken to ensure the quality and consistency of the reprocessed carpet it may contain defects and non-carpet objects which are
inherent in the recycling process. It is therefore recommended that customers examine the material on delivery and before it is blended with other
products and remove all non-carpet or other unwanted objects which are not compatible with their intended use.
