Top 10 Things to Consider Before Arena Construction
ESI FOOTING GEO
ESI’s basic mixture for equestrian riding arenas.
ESI-Footing Geo is ESI’s geotextile material used for a wide range of arena footings, from hunters and jumpers to dressage and western arenas.
ESI FOOTING FIBER
The same fiber that is used to make the textile fabric for the ESI-Footing GEO Textiles. The Fibers are
1-2 inches long and are working like a root system through the sand. You can use the ESI Footing Fibers with or without ESI Footing Geo Textiles.
ESI FOOTING ELASTIC FIBER
Made up of small, cut elastic fibers, this special fiber optimizes shear resistance and makes the footing flexible and springy. It is mainly used for horse race tracks, gallops and jumping arenas in combination with ESI Footing Geo Textile. ESI Footing Elastic fiber acts like a root system, binding sand particles and other additives together, and resulting in a very high footing stability.
ESI will save you time and money by providing mixing services for your arena footing. By mixing the GGT materials with our sands to create the ideal footing mix beforehand, it avoids time consuming on-site processes.
GGT JUMPING MIX

GGT DRESSAGE MIX
Custom mix of GGT Geo Textile with GGT Fiber. GGT Dressage is especially designed and engineered for mix with sands in dressage equestrian arenas.
GGT WESTERN MIX
GGT-Footing Western Mix is the first mix in the Western sector that is ideal for all western riding disciplines. Whether you practice reining, cutting, pleasure, cow-horse, barrel-race, or trail. The GGT Western Mix has been specially designed, engineered, and tested for the Western Discipline.

ARENAS – DESIGN, BUILD, MAINTAIN
DERBY FIELD DEVELOPMENT

2. Intended Use: Where are the possible uses for your arena? How often will the arena be used? This will affect the footing you choose when building your arena. ESI has extensive experience determining the best footing for your arena.
3. Disciplines: Who will be riding on the arena? What will its uses be? Arena size and footing recommendations can change based on disciplines.
4. Drainage Systems: There are many drainage systems to consider based on your location. Rainfall, soil base, and more are all factors. Let us show you many solutions including our custom Ebb and Flow system.
