Horse arena sand footing

We have an horse arena sand footing that will stay with you, no matter what equestrian discipline you follow or compete in.

Arena sand has and continues to be one of our specialties. Gradation is the key factor when selecting proper sand for horse and arena footing. The discipline you practice and the needs you feel are important will determine the gradation of the sand footing you need. A proper arena sand helps to cushion the joints and cartilage, and at the same time provide the optimal feel you desire. At BariteWorld we can custom blend the proper gradation according to your specific needs.

Regardless of your riding conditions, wet or dry, we pledge that our product will keep you riding in footing that most suits your style. When it is raining, our arena sand solves the common problem of drainage by helping to remove water faster, with high rate of infiltration. When dry riding conditions are available you can rest assured that our arena sand will reduce dust. We remove the dust by thoroughly washing our sand. Dust can sometimes be a health concern for both you and your horse. Our natural sand is sub-angular in shape which leads to an increased traction but also provides the necessary cushion.

Arena Footing

It is extremely important to know what type of sand you are purchasing. Many companies sell sand that is not desirable for proper horse footing, instead they sell the sand that is not desirable for other uses. Many manufactured sands lead to extreme compaction, dust and serious health concerns for riders and horses. These manufactured sands may be great for a base but not necessarily for the footing or top layer.  When riding in an arena, footing is one of the most important aspects of your horse’s performance; don’t settle for a second-rate product that could compromise safety.
