Information and application
A good arena footing is of pivotal importance for both dressage and show jumping horses.
The addition of the textile footing XP4-fibre to your arena stabilizes the sand particles and increases elasticity creating a perfect riding surface.
By mixing XP4-fibre into the top layer of the sand you will create a stable arena surface, cushioned to soften the impact on your horse’s legs. While keeping the arena well drained and smooth at the same time.
The 4 unique characteristics of XP4-fiber are:
- Excellent stability;
- Improvement and balancing of moisture absorption (allowing longer intervals between watering);
- Durable and environmentally sound;
- Ability to bind to any type of sand.
In addition to its excellent stability XP4-fibre improves and balances moisture absorption.
Its composition (natural cotton, and P.E.T.), and its special weave structure allow high water storage capacity as well as good emission and drainage. These unique characteristics guarantee a good water storage for a prolonged period of time creating a stable riding arena footing which is smooth and dust-free.
XP4-fibre is suitable for laying as a new arena footing, but also for complementing existing arena surfaces.
As this textile footing is white in color. Mixing it with sand will create a beautiful white or cream riding surface.
XP4-fibre is suitable for both new and existing arena surfaces. For new arena surfaces or for existing arena surfaces where no footing material is present the amount of XP4-fibre needed is approximately 3 to 4 kg per square meter, depending on the type of sand and soil.
For existing arena surfaces in which a footing material is already present the amount of XP4-fibre needed is approximately 2 to 3 kg per square meter.
The installation of the XP4-fibre is fairly simple. After careful leveling of the base of the arena, the required amount of XP4-fibre is mixed into the top layer of approximately 7 to 8 cm. After this the arena footing is ready to be used. This new arena footing stabilizes in a very short time after use. In fact riding ensures thorough mixing of the XP4-fibre with the top layer of the arena.
XP4-fibre has been thoroughly tested by laboratory leaching tests which show that this textile footing has no negative effect on the environment.
The XP4 fiber is delivered in bales.
