Following a long career in Civil Engineering and a lifetime in an Equestrian driven family I took a leap of faith in the Equestrian world and re-introduced the name of my fathers long-term business KEEWAY.
Since 2019 we’ve been developing our knowledge and range of products to fit the Irish Equestrian Market ensuring we are promoting Equestrian health, Welfare, Safety and the Environment, whilst trying to maintain affordable products for my clients.
an excellent Napier family, run multi disciplined facility where they have seen fit to use the Keeway standard Arena fibre in the show jumping and Dressage arenas, all-weather XC track and most recently in the extensive arena modifications.
Established by Adrienne Stuart over 30 years ago, Gransha Equestrian Centre is a British Horse Society approved riding school and livery yard with extensive competition facilities. With 2 large indoor schools, the Topspec arena, suited to full size Dressage competitions which also links into the Derby arena which includes banks, water obstacles and a drop down lane section. All the riding surfaces over the past 15 years have been developed and only ever used Keeway Standard Arena Fibre.
a fantastic facility just off the N7 out of Dublin. Run by Jonathan Corway it has beautiful livery facilities with matching views from its various competition platforms and undulating allweather XC purpose built track. All the surfaces have been developed with Keeway Standard Arena Fibre include in the riding surfaces. Jonathan also has change from Shavings to Ecoflax for the yard.
With its 500 acres of prime limestone grassland in an idyllic setting bordering the River Loobagh, Mount Coote Stud provides the perfect environment for raising thoroughbreds. Its paddocks include plenty of natural shelter in the form of mature trees and thorn hedges. Luke Lillingstone’s wife Tabitha had issues with the sand school and bought my Standard Arena Fibre to sort out the riding surface. While I was there I talked about my EcoFlax and a year on the y have both Keeway arena Fibre and they use EcoFlax delivered 33 pallets at a time.
The stud has 100 foaling and loose boxes spread across three farms, one of which is used as a temporary isolation unit for new arrivals.
EcoFlax is an important part of what Leading international breeders expect when boarding their valuable bloodstock at Mount Coote Stud over the years.
some may know her Fb persona as the very funny mother of “the boy” and many other animals including the hilarious pet lambs.
Christa is a Centre 10 Advanced Coach, based in County Westmeath. She also trains and competes regularly in both dressage and showjumping. Christa chose to add Keeway fibre to her silica sand surface in 2021, and hasn’t looked back-
“Adding Keeway fibre to our arena surface has made such a huge difference. Beforehand, the surface could get deep in dry weather and although it drained well in wet weather, it could be slow to do so after heavy rain. The addition of good quality, affordable and easy to install fibre means that the arena now never rides deep, and it drains without holding water. My horses are happier and more confident in their way of going, and their legs are always perfect after work. I do most of my coaching at home, and the additional traffic on the sand and fibre hasn’t affected it at all. All my clients have also been very complimentary about the improved surface. There is additional satisfaction in knowing that I have now got the riding surface of my dreams, for a fraction of the cost of other outlets. Every day I ride in my arena, I can’t believe my luck.”
Hi Tim.. you supplied my arena fibre two years ago…. Its doing a super job . Ballymoney
at Gransha we’ve been using Keeway Arena Fibre since before it was Keeway. It was after I’d been using it for several years that Tim saw its potential and closed his Ground Engineering Consultancy Business to work out of Gransha.
The quality of the fibre has never changed and has worked with the several differently sourced sands we have used in the past number of new extensions and the Antwerp arena.
We moved across to EcoFlax for our family horses and those liveries who could see the benefit. We buy it in 33 pallet loads with storage outside being ideal.
