Adrienne Lyle riding Wizard on ProTex Footing at Rivergrove Farm

ArenaAid has become one of our most popular footing additives. The combination of nylon and polyester fibers stabilizes a wide variety of sands, new or existing. The unique formula of fibers gives sand a structure by trapping loose, rolling particles. As an added benefit, the nylon fibers hold moisture in your arena surface.

ArenaAid increases stability and grip, cushion, cupping, and rebound.

“We installed ArenaAid into our arena and could not be more thrilled. It has the attributes of the footing we had at our last farm without the negatives. That prior footing, while fantastic for competition, could be a bit firm for every day riding. ArenaAid has given us high performance footing suitable for daily training at an unbelievably competitive price.”

*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 Premier 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!
