“I can’t believe how much life Premier Equestrian was able to put back into our footing. The ProTex stabilized our surface, minimized the dust, it now retains more moisture thus reducing the need to water, and kept the surface from compacting. What a huge improvement. The cost was a fraction of a complete redo.” You guys are simply the best!! Thank you from all of us at River Grove!”

How Arena Surfaces Affect Horse Biomechanics

Every stride is influenced by how the hoof interacts with the ground and the various qualities of the arena layers. An ideal horse arena footing surface allows horses to move efficiently, minimizes concussion, absorbs shock, provides support, and returns energy back to the horse. Watch this video to understand how different surfaces affect the biomechanics of the horse. Save

*Please Note: Premier Equestrian can guide you to find a footing solution suitable for you and your budget. However, unless you are contracting our consulting services, choosing the correct sand and mixing the product is your responsibility. Results can and will vary depending on what material is available in your area. If you choose to perform your own installation, which many people do, Premier Equestrian can not be and is not responsible or liable for your installation.

Sand Note: All our footings are designed to be mixed with sand. There are, however, significant variations in sand in each area. Not all sands are appropriate to use as footing for your equestrian arena. There are many factors you should consider in determining the appropriate sand, including, without limitation, your riding style, the number of horses using the ring and the duration of such ring use, watering capability for the ring, the status of any current existing footing materials, seasonal weather conditions, and whether you ride on an indoor or outdoor horse arena. Combining Master’s Blend Footing with the correct type and depth of sand is required in order to build a safe arena surface. Please choose properly sized arena sand based on your proposed use. Feel free to call and discuss your arena questions with one of our representatives today!
