All About Sand
Sand qualities affect the performance of your footing, such as being tight, loose, soft, hard, and how much dust is produced.
Whether you’re starting new or rehabilitating an existing surface, the wrong sand can create problems and becomes very expensive over time. A Premier footing specialist will guide you to finding the best sand in your area.
The variety of particle sizes affects how hard or lose the footing can become.
Particle shape affects how the sand compacts and moves underfoot.
Mineral determines how particles hold up over time before breaking down to dust.
Premier Equestrian footing products mix with new or existing sand to minimize concussion, absorb shock, provide support, and return energy back to the horse for the best in performance and safety.
The arena base enables drainage and provides a firm and level surface for the footing layer. From troubleshooting base issues to complete construction, we’re here to help.
Even with the best base, sand, and footing products, regular arena maintenance will keep footing materials mixed so the footing is consistent for your horses.
