Economy Track

Economy Track was designed for the advantages of a pre-mixed surface at an economical price, being one of Equestrian’s first fully synthetic surfaces as the stabilising fibres maximise the life span of the surface and create a quality surface sympathetic with both horse and rider.

This surface is made up from environmentally approved stabilising fibre with a multi washed silica sand, requiring irrigation in prolonged dry periods.

Sand, Fibres and Rubber

Multi Washed Silica Sand

Equestrian Surfaces only use the best quality multi washed silica sand, using only the finest quality sub angular silica sand allows for heavy compaction and good drainage.

Multi washed silica sand can be supplied on its own but works best with a fibre additive to retain moisture within the surface and allow for a more secure, consistent footing.

Stabilising Fibres

Stabilising fibre will effectively improve the performance of any arena whether this is incorporating some life to an existing surface or to add to a deep riding sand school, Equestrian’s stabilising fibre should be the product of choice.

The fibre is purely synthetic in origin resulting to an enhancement over the products life expectancy, with being environmentally certified in rigorous testing the surface will not break down or degrade over time.

Below are Equestrian’s synthetic fibre options:

Economy Stabilising Fibre components are purpose manufactured and selected for the desired properties required for an Equestrian riding surface.

This can be easily incorporated and improve the stability of new or existing sand as it rides on top of surfaces. Adding moisture retention thus creating a greater consistency in varying weather conditions and minimises effect of frost. Both cost effective and environmentally friendly.

Premier Stabilising Fibre provides lateral and vertical binding to achieve optimum consistency and cushioning, dramatically enhance the performance of any sand surface.

Rides on top of surface thus can be easily incorporated and improve the stability of new or existing sand. Giving stability and elasticity to existing sand surfaces allowing significant impact absorption and improves return of surface through, “track memory”.

Equestrian Rubber crumb consists of 99% wire free rubber which has been processed through a granulator, washed and screened to approximately 40mm in size which is suitable for riding arenas.

As rubber will always sit on top of the surface it has no binding properties, which allows for a fibre additive to be added to existing rubber arenas and you’ll still get all the benefits from the original rubber surface, plus an additional frost resistant layer.
