I have use at the mo of a rather old but sound ford lorry that though the trials and tribulations of a non loading horse has some rather thin and tatty rubber matting on the ramp. I would like to replace this as a thank you to the owners of the lorry for letting me use it. It is a pretty typical ramp in that it is studded with wooden batons (about 6 in total) and measures about 3 m x 2.5m . Any recommendations on where is the best place to buy replacement rubber matting and whether I would best to cut indivual segments to fit between the batons or if I should just lay one big sheet and screw the batons through the matting on top ??

There was a thread about this in NL not long ago - http://www.horseandhound.co.uk/forums/sh...rue#Post4555892 (http://www.horseandhound.co.uk/forums/showflat.php?Cat=0&Board=newlounge2&Number=4555892 &Searchpage=1&Main=4555892&Words=+eventer28&topic= &Search=true#Post4555892)

i took the batons off, and placed it on across the ramp, needed two lengths. Then i put the batons back on and hey presto!

depending on how much you needed i have some left which i was going to ebay when i got around to it. It is ribbed, and IMP just the right thickness so that it is durable, yet not too heavy.
