An essential property of riding grounds is that they spare the joints and ligaments of the horses and enhance the ride for horse and rider. For this reason Columbus set out to discover high-quality and recyclable additives which would improve the horse’s foothold and enhance the elasticity of the top sand besides minimising the hooftrail and reducing the strain on the ligaments and joints of the horse. The stability and resilience of the riding ground are thus increased.
Our Geo Fibres optimise the top sand, minimise the hooftrail and compensate for inequalities in the composition of the riding ground. The Geo Fibres are worked into the top sand and are available in the colours white and green. In quartz sands or top sands which are too deep, the 1-2cm large Geo Fibres give optimal stability and a firm foothold. The resilience of the riding ground is improved noticeably. Ideal for your new riding area or for the redevelopment of your existing riding area, our Geo Fibres are the perfect choice. Our additives are suitable for all outdoor areas, paddocks, as well as for lunge rings or indoor riding arenas.
The amount required is approx. 2,5-4 kg per m2 (14 cm) top sand.
The material is delivered in packaged bundles on one-way pallets.
