What types of Arenas should utilize TruTex Eclipse?

TruTex Eclipse is the ideal choice for new or existing arenas with fine to medium sands – to create an easy to maintain footing that offers the support and cushion necessary for dressage and jumping horses.


– Arenas that dry out very quickly and get dusty will benefit from the increased moisture retention and dust control of Eclipse.

– Arenas that feel flat and need a livelier footing, while at the same time offering better traction and support, will benefit from Eclipse.

– While we don’t recommend purchasing stone sands for use as arena footing. If you are already working with a manufactured sand and are looking to create more volume and better cushion – Eclipse is the best product to enhance a crushed limestone or bluestone type sand. (For best results we recommend using a fine, sub-angular sand, ideally with high silica content, for greater longevity).

– If you have a footing that is too slippery and unstable, check out our TruTex Element product.

"We are thrilled with the footing!!! We are always getting excellent feedback from competitors and we love how well it retains moisture! It has helped so much to keep the dust down and the footing is a lot more springy and uniform. I like using the darker bluestone sand in our arenas as it thaws more quickly in the winter so the darker color of Eclipse worked out perfectly for us. We will certainly be adding TruTex to our remaining arenas as soon as we can!"
