Project Profile:

JF Shea Therapeutic Riding Center

Project Summary

The Shea center has served the disabled community with their therapeutic horse back riding programs. To meet a growing need for their services, a new facility will allow the center to expand from 200 riders per week to 400, approximately. Gravelpave2 was applied to specific areas for emergency access. The tan Gravelpave2 mat system was filled with decomposed granite–thus assisting in the reduction of ruts and potholes. The rolls (Model 2020) were used throughout the installation for a less time consuming installation.
