"I’m just loving my footing!!! Once I figured out how to rake it properly, it’s such easy maintenance. I used to have to water and rake daily and now, maybe once a week. My horse loves it too! Never gets too deep and has a lovely spring and stability. Can’t wait to see if it takes longer to freeze this winter. Thanks for all your help!"

What types of Arenas should utilize TruTex Element?

TruTex Element is the best choice for an existing sand arena that needs a straightforward solution to stabilize the sand and improve overall footing quality.

Most people choose to self-install and feel a more comfortable and confident horse from the first ride!

This sand is very unstable and allows deep hoofprints. It shifts too easily under the horses' feet.Shallow hoofprints left in arena sand after adding TruTex Fibers. This provides the horse with a lot more support.

Arenas that suffer from overly loose sand that moves around too easily such as the concrete sand in the example shown here are great candidates for TruTex Element.

Arenas with particularly rounded sand particles can also be improved considerably with TruTex Element.

With the lowest moisture requirements of our three products, Element is a great option for a low-maintenance solution or if you’re planning to utilize MAG as an alternative to watering.
