The Palm Beach International Equestrian Center’s International Arena was upgraded with OTTO Sport Base Mats and Premier ProTex footing product.
OTTO Sport Base Mats protect your horse’s joints from debilitating, concussive damage from hard arena surfaces, and minimize tendon damage due to instability and slippage. Available exclusively at Premier Equestrian.
1. Locking Rings on the underside lock mats into the surface due to their conic shape, preventing shifting and stones can’t travel up into the footing.
2. Drainage Holes (252/mat) removes up to 8 inches/hour, making the arena useable immediately after heavy rain. Horses will never have to stand in puddles or mud in paddocks.
3. Reservoirs hold up to 1 gallon of water per mat and release it back into the footing to maintain even hydration.
4. Traction Knobs of varied heights provide stability, while allowing some hoof movement.
Premier ProTex Arena Footing Product is designed for high performance in high-use areas. The ProTex textiles and fibers were combined with carefully chosen silica sands.
The carefully chosen sands combined with ProTex, created a surface unlike any other, possessing all the characteristics the FEI is looking for, including maximum drainage, with increased stability, shear support, and rebound. ProTex textiles and fibers provides a “rooting” function by reducing shear force and promoting shock absorption.
