Arena Grooming Equipment
Grooming and maintenance are key factors in achieving quality arena footing. Premier groomers enable you to maintain a consistent riding surface for your equine athlete, avoid footing irregularities, and condition your sand and footing additives. A professional-type groomer can overturn and redistribute the varying sand particle sizes and keep additives mixed thoroughly.
Outfitted with S-tines, a leveling bar, and a roller the Premier Standard Groomer combines several design elements that extend its grooming capabilities.
Premier Mini Pro
All the same great features as the Premier Pro in a compact, lighter-weight version. The Premier Mini Pro is designed to be pulled with smaller equipment without a 3-Point hitch.
We are very pleased with our groomer! The sand texture, depth, and level of firmness we can achieve is consistent across the arena and the drag is easy to use. Furthermore, the more we use it, the more level our arena is becoming. As I might have mentioned, the previous groomer had created a rolling surface very rapidly after we had had the arena professionally leveled. I am so glad that we made the switch to the Premier Equestrian groomer – it was absolutely worth it!Julie
Having the ability to water your arena surface will make a huge difference in performance and dust control. The intermolecular attraction formed between water molecules holds wet sand together, stabilizing particles that would roll if dry. Water also plays a roll in absorbing and slowing down the concussive energy of pounding hooves. Water maintains its consistency from 32 degrees to 165 degrees Fahrenheit.
We recommend water over polymers and wax coatings, as these types of coatings don’t have the same molecular bond that water has. Polymer and wax molecules actually have a repelling type action. They can become wedged in your horses feet creating a snowball effect. This offsets the balance of the hoof. These types of coatings are very inconsistent in temperature variation. They are stiff and clumpy in cold temperatures and have a lower melting point in high temperatures causing them to leave residue on clothes, shoes, and your horse. Using a groomer and watering the footing surface will ensure its longevity, and will also reduce the risk of injury for your equine athlete.
