Horse Arena Footing

Additives

For over a decade, we have been studying how equestrian arena surfaces interact with horse biomechanics. Our additives are designed to enhance and compliment different qualities of existing and new arena sand to benefit horse performance and prevent injury. When mixed with your unique sand, our products aid in stabilization, moisture control, impact absorption.

What does a footing additive do?

Layer1 roots
Layer2 fibers

Textiles and fibers retain moisture and stabilize sand by binding loose particles. Fibers mimic the effects of a grass rooting system. The horses’ hooves ride on top of the surface rather than in it. These materials require a specific blend of sand, as well as water and specific grooming equipment.

Rubber enhances sands that compact very hard. The rubber creates a void, thus reducing the ability to compact fully, improving cushion and drainage. It’s great for well-graded, angular sands that are prone to compaction. Rubber is ideal when you don’t have access to water as it isn’t required to bind to sand particles.
