TruTex Eclipse 4
  • Arenas that suffer from over compaction but can also have loose sand that moves around too easily are great candidates for TruTex Eclipse.
  • Arenas that dry out very quickly and get dusty will benefit most from the increased moisture retention of Eclipse.
  • Eclipse is the best fit for arenas using a manufactured sand such as crushed limestone or bluestone. (For best results we recommend using a natural sand or sand with high silica content)
"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!"
