Matting systems for your arena have become the newest and most innovative addition to riding arenas. There are many different mats on the market currently, and all serve a different purpose.
Our EBUS mats (Equestrian Buffer Underlayment System) have been a game-changer in the world of equestrian footing. They can be installed both indoors and outdoors, and enhance the performance of our excellent footing products. Added cushion, reasonable cost, and easy installation are all benefits of these mats. Through extensive scientific testing, these mats have shown excellent results to improve your horses’ performance and reduce risk of injury.
Additionally, the OT-40 mat is an excellent mat that will help reduce concussion and improve drainage. It is useful over a free draining base outdoors, as it allows water through the mat very quickly and adds stability to your base layer. We have also found this mat especially useful in round pens and small arenas where added strength and traction may be needed. Both of these products need 5 inches loose of footing over the top to preserve your mats integrity.
Grids are another type of mat that we generally use over interior drains within the arena. They are amazing for dry paddocks, around watering systems in fields, and on any steep grade where erosion may occur. They come in a variety of shapes and sizes, but are solely used for drainage and stability, adding no concussion value to your riding arena.
