Equitan Footing for riding surfaces

Healthy training and effective progress require an optimal riding surface. Choose a footing-sand mix with Melos quality, ‘Made in Germany’. Equitan Footing supports horse and rider with the perfect balance between surface elasticity and stability. Spine, tendons and joints are effectively cushioned – even under the heavy strains caused by movement.

System details

The combination of sand and Equitan Footing creates a long-lasting riding surface with the greatest elasticity and stability. The fibrous structure and sand grains complement one another perfectly, are the foundation for strong trainings and ensure that horses are completely sure-footed.
Equitan Footing is milled into the already available sand and serves as a central elastic layer.

Product features

The advantages for users of associations and equestrian centres are clear: Equitan Footing, which is manufactured from strictly controlled new materials, is extremely colourfast and weather resistant, even in outdoor spaces. Even high volumes of riders or low temperatures do not compress the ground, the elasticity remains unchanged and the long-term maintenance costs are low. Thanks to its long service life, the material can be used with fresh sand several times and can be removed again.
