The Benefits of Foam Footing for your Arena
Let's face it...
Without properly prepared and maintained footing in your arena, your enjoyable riding experience can quickly turn into discomfort for both you and your horse.
Annoying distractions caused by the footing such as dust, special grooming equipment or schedules, lameness injuries, constant watering or even the duration of your training session could minimize your riding bliss.
Our company, made up of riders, trainers and product designers, knew there had to be a better solution. FoamFooting™ is an easy to apply arena footing additive that is effective for many different disciplines, geographies and can be used in outdoor arenas as well as indoors.
In fact, we have FoamFooting™ in riding facilities around the US that frequently experience temperatures of -10 to 115 degrees.
Once installed, the riders have personally described benefits such as:
... and happier horses. And we all know that happier horses make all of us happier riders. (Well, all bucking aside that is.)
*note, FoamFooting™ shown is multi-colored. Single colors are available. The colors quickly fade into the sand after installation and several days of riding. Dogs love it too!

How to Install Foam Footing
FoamFooting™ is designed to be able to be easily installed without the need for professional help
or the use of heavy equipment. In fact, unlike fiber footing additives, FoamFooting™ does not
require the use of a special drag to keep maintained.
Unpack the bags from the shipping pallets and place evenly across your arena. Space them approximately 10-12 feet apart from each other.
With a box cutter or blade, cut the top of each bag in an X shape.
Turn over each bag so that the FoamFooting™ is empties from each bag into the arena
Spread out each pile of foam using a rake until it is covering the entire arena or desired space. Don’t worry about the explosion of colors though take some photos and share them us @performancefooting! (FoamFooting™ mixes in with your base sand material)
Using your normal drag, thoroughly drag the arena or space until the FoamFooting™ is mixed with your base material. Note that it will take riding and use to fully mix in with your base.
