Time to put the spring back into your footing

Premier Equestrian Launches Spring Arena Refresh Program

It’s springtime! And time to put the spring back into your horse arena footing. Over the winter many outdoor arenas get little use, typically because of wet and freezing winter weather.

Premier Equestrian, North America’s leading horse arena footing supplier announced a program to help arena owners get ready for spring riding with the Spring Refresher Program. This program offers smaller amounts of footing additives perfect for a spring spruce up of any arena.

The weather affects your arena surface in several ways. If you have an additive like Premier’s ArenaAid™ Footing several months of non-use can result in your textile migrating to the top and the sand falling below. Sand particles separate and segregate under weather and it changes the characteristics of your arena surface. These changes can vary widely. Sometimes the surface will become too deep and soft, other times it may cause your surface to compact and become hard. Weather can also cause the footing material itself to get washed away from erosion. This list a adds up to one thing, springtime maintenance.

A good maintenance program is essential for arena performance. Premier Equestrian makes this job easier with its’ Spring refresher program. Premier packages its’ footing products in smaller quantities so you can give your surface a boost in cushion, resilience, and grip. Footing additives wear out over time. If your surface feels a bit dead or if the cushion is firm, then adding a bit more textile/fiber can bring it back to life.

Premier Equestrian has extensive and detailed information online at about maintenance, sand, and footing products. You can find a lot of answers to questions about footing, groomers, even waterless solutions on our website. You can also call Premier Equestrian to discuss the details of your arena situation with an arena specialist.
