Here we highlight some of the key properties of two of our own waxed and non-waxed surfaces. Fibrewax is one of our most popular waxed riding surfaces, whilst Fibremix is an extremely popular non-waxed option.
FibrewaxThis waxed riding surface is an extremely low-maintenance pre-mixed equestrian surface that can be used as soon as it has been installed. It’s a popular choice for outdoor arenas, riding schools and gallop tracks due to its long life span and excellent stability.
Waxed riding surfaces don’t need irrigation, making them the perfect solution for time-pressed yard owners who want a highly stable surface that is capable of withstanding the wear and tear of heavy use with minimal upkeep.
Carefully mixed on our premises from a mixture of High Quality Washed Silica Sand and synthetic stabilising fibres, the mix is coated with precise amounts of wax to ensure that the finished surface provides the necessary stability and traction for the horse to travel over the surface rather than sink into it.
The synthetic fibres provide a root structure to the surface, which is ideal for providing a highly stable footing for your horse through all disciplines.
FibremixNon-waxed riding surfaces are ideal for any equestrian looking to upgrade their non-mixed arena surface. Easy to install, our pre-mixed formula arrives ready to use and only requires irrigation to keep it in tip-top condition.
Our non-waxed surface is made from a mixture of washed silica sand which is of the highest quality, combined with stabilising fibres. The silica sand has a low clay and silt content which minimises dust and allows the surface to soak up moisture, whilst still allowing for free drainage.
Unlike surfaces which are mixed on-site, which either fail to incorporate the components adequately or risk tearing your surface membrane, our pre-mixed surfaces are thoroughly combined in our own mixing plant, which results in a much higher ratio of fibres in the finished mix. This offers superior stability and longevity. All you need to do is irrigate your arena surface to keep it in optimum condition for your equine disciplines.
Whether you choose one of our non-waxed or waxed riding surfaces, you can be confident that your new riding arena will give you many years of enjoyment. Unlike on-site mixes, the synthetic fibres are combined throughout the whole of the arena surface, eliminating the risk of damage to the underlying membrane and ensuring that you won’t find pockets of irregularity in the surface.
