Equestrian sands, arena footing mixes and
Quality blended mixes for optimum riding surfaces
Whether you are building a new horse arena or you need to fix the one you have, there is nothing more critical to your success than to have the proper footing designed for what you want the horses to accomplish. Proper footing provides consistency, cushioning, traction and support for your horses; improving performance while minimizing injury.
Arena footing mixes that are safe, non-toxic and affordable
Plaisted equestrian sand mix is paired with durable German GGT Footing™ Amendments made from new polyester materials that are non-toxic and non-allergenic. These materials stabilize the sand particles and mimic the effect of the rooting system of turf. The combination of sand and amendments gives more resilience, minimizes packing, and helps to hold moisture in the surface so there is less dust. A properly blended footing mix also reduces stress to horse joints and tendons.
The following durable, easy to care for amendments extend the lifetime of arena surfaces up to 10 years depending on usage and maintenance.
• GGT-Footing GEO: Basic mixture for riding arena
• GGT-Footing Fiber: Extends arena surface lifetime
• GGT-Footing Elastic Fiber: For horse race tracks, gallop and jumping arenas
