It’s All About the Sand
There is a vast amount of information to know pertaining to sand and aggregates. That’s why geologists and soil engineers are employed for doing large projects like damns, highways and buildings. For that same reason, we also employ a soil engineer to help determine the quality and compatibility of our customers’ sand. We offer one free sand report to our customers in order for our sales staff to properly guide you through the process of getting qualified sand for your additive.

Sand is the most important ingredient is your arena. Sand characteristics determine how footing additives will perform. A sand sieve test will assure the footing you purchase from us will be effective and perform to your expectations. Our goal is to help you make an informed and educated decision about your arena footing purchase. We’re here to guide you through the entire process. Our in-house soil engineer helps to determine the quality and compatibility of our customers’ sand. We offer one free sand report. Additional sand analysis reports are $45 each.

You want to make an informed and educated decision about your arena footing. Our goal is to help you do this, not to sell you an overpriced arena footing or installation you don’t need. We want to help you understand your arena surface to ease your decision on the products that are right for you. Most horse owners know what they want; they just need information and guidance to get their desired results.
- Download and print the Arena Sand Evaluation Form (PDF)
- Fill out the form in its entirety
- Mail the form to us along with 2 cups of your new or existing sand.
For an Existing Arena: We need a good representation of all the particle sizes in your existing arena. Go all the way down to the base when collecting your sand sample. Small sand particles tend to fall to the base while larger particles tend to be on the top. Collecting a sample from just the surface will give false readings in the test lab. Put 2 cups of the sand sample in a durable plastic bag with your name and phone number.
For a New Arena: Most sand quarries will have sieve reports (i.e. technical specifications) on the sands they sell. Sometimes the reports are out of date and inaccurate. If you intend to use new sand with a footing additive, we suggest sending us a sample. We will analyze the sand to verify its’ compatibility with your chosen footing product. Again, we do this for your protection.
