British equestrian surfaces manufacturer Martin Collins International will provide the footing for the FEI World Cup Finals at Leipzig (27 April-1 May).
The competition is the first time four equestrian World Cup finals — showjumping, dressage, driving and vaulting — will be staged at the same event.
It is the second time in two years that MCI has provided the footing for a major FEI championship, having surfaced Windsor, UK, for the dual show jumping and dressage European Championships in 2009.
And EN GARDE Marketing GmbH, the organisers of the World Cup event, have used MC Ecotrack at Hamburg Horse Show.
Managing director Volker Wulff said: “Following our good experiences in Hamburg, as well as conversations with top competitors from different disciplines, it was a logical decision to choose Martin Collins for the FEI World Cup Finals.
An event of the very highest level will only be successful if each individual product used will meet the highest requirements.”
MC Dry Ecotrack was chosen as it is flexible enough to be worked between classes to meet the different footing requirements of the four disciplines.
