A test of the surface at the World Equestrian Center, home of the 2021 GRCA National Specialty, was conducted on May 24 with obedience and conformation dogs. Obedience, Rally and Conformation will be contested on hard-packed GGT Horse Footing. In this video, professional handler and Golden breeder Morgan Brooks tests the surface for Conformation.
Thanks to veteran competitors (L-R) Susan Howard, Sally Sherman and Morgan Brooks, all members of the Mid-Florida Golden Retriever Club, for their help in conducting tests of the GGT Horse Footing at the World Equestrian Center in advance of the 2021 GRCA National Specialty. Susan and Sally tested for Obedience and Morgan for Conformation, both of which (along with Rally) will be contested on the hard-packed horse footing. All three of the successful and experienced competitors gave their approval for the surface and are looking forward to the National in October.
The surface in the Arenas at WEC is a State of the Art Textile blend, that can be made hard or soft, while maintaining dust control. Here is a link for inquiring minds: https://www.ggtfooting.com/.
