Superior Riding Surface
Superior Riding Surface (SRS) is a water-dependent footing, consisting of the highest grade of silica sand and fibers to create a footing that will stand up to traffic when properly hydrated. This arena footing is custom-blended to meet our client’s individual needs. SRS can be formulated to withstand the traffic and impact of a competitive horse show and it can be blended to a softer mix for lighter use. This arena footing is quickly becoming the choice of top international riders because it can be custom-blended for indoor and outdoor arenas and for riding at all levels.
Ebb and Flow Systems
Our excellent ebb and flow system comes from Europe. Providing water from below, this system keeps the footing moist at all times. Ebb and flow uses one-third of the water supply that any other system that requires irrigation needs. As water becomes a commodity, this is extremely useful in areas like California and Arizona. Many top international riders prefer this system over many others, as it offers a dust-free surface at all times and a softer working environment for the horse. Some footings are too firm for everyday work at home.
