What Is Fibremix™?Created from a carefully sourced blend of high quality materials, Fibremix™ is an all-round, multipurpose surface which is suitable for a range of equestrian pursuits, including dressage and show jumping. Our special mix of high quality, washed silica sand and stabilising fibres create a surface that is firm and supportive, with the necessary degree of cushioning to protect the horses’ legs from undue strain and injury. Fibremix™ uses only the highest grade silica sands, specifically chosen for their low silt and clay content; this minimises dust and allows the surface to effectively retain moisture, whilst allowing any excess water to drain away. By blending the silica sand with two different types of synthetic fibre, the surface provides maximum stability, allowing the horse to travel across the surface rather than riding through it. By using our own dedicated mixing plants we ensure that our Fibremix™ contains fibres that are mixed throughout the entire depth of the surface, unlike on-site mixing methods where generally the fibres only penetrate the top couple of inches. Using our specialist, computer controlled equipment also allows us to add twice as much fibre into the surface, increasing stability, moisture retention and helping to reduce the risk of fibre migration during spells of exceptionally dry weather.
