DustHalt is an effective and eco-friendly solution to dry, dusty arenas. The way most dust control agents work is through clumping arena footing together. While this gives the appearance of less dust, the results are temporary and often disturb the composition of your arena soil. DustHalt works differently.

DustHalt doesn’t rely on clumping your footing together. Instead, this product coats the individual footing particles and causes them to retain more moisture on their own. This feature not only improves the texture of your footing, it reduces the need of watering by up to 50%. Since a single treatment of DustHalt can last for approximately 6-12 months (or more!), this makes it a cost effective choice for even the busiest arenas.

DustHalt works by charging the dust in your arena to a negative pole. This results in the dust getting drawn toward your existing footing, meaning less of it gets kicked up into the air.

This technology does a few things for new and old footing alike.

First, DustHalt makes the overall riding conditions of your arena safer for the health of you and your horse, as neither of you will inhale the large particles of sand found in the air of dusty arenas.

Second, DustHalt will improve the condition of your arena footing, allowing you to have better performance overall whether in dressage, barrel racing, lessons, or even casual leisure riding.

Finally, DustHalt allows the fibers in your arena to better retain the right amount of moisture. This means not only will you water less, but you will likely experience less flooding as well.

DustHalt™ uses a flocculation polymer to bind microscopic dust particles back together and is water activated. Water allows the polymer and dust particlesto bind, making them heavy and no longer able to become airborne.

DustHalt™ is a chemical flocculant and is safe for animals and humans. This binding allows the moisture to be retained reducing the need to water your arena by 50%. Additionally, it can add a bit of traction to your arena because of the particle stabilization qualities. In combination with FoamFooting it makes for the most idea surface.  This granular additive is very easy to install, and maintain.

Prep footing

FOR APPLICATION

Moisten footing if dry as slight moisture is all that is needed.

If the footing is dry, DustHalt will fall through the footing to the base and be difficult to activate. If footing is too wet – it is difficult to mix into the footing.

Groom the top surface of the footing

NOTE: Do not harrow or groom more than 1” to 1.5” deep.

Apply - Groom - Apply

FOLLOW INSTRUCTIONS

Set spreader to smallest hole. Spread instructed amount on your arena surface using a handheld broadcast seeder or large rubber tire push spreader.

Lightly groom the surface – ideally no deeper than 1”.

Fully Soak to the base. Soak the footing in a way that you do not puddle, but ensure footing is fully soaked. Groom vigorously to base.

Water - Wait & Ride!

READY TO RIDE

Following Day: Sprinkle the surface of footing with water.

You will not need to water as much or as long as when you installed.

Vigorously groom the footing to complete the application process.

Time to go and ride!

Installation and Maintenance

Preparation: Moisten, but do not soak, the arena footing. The footing needs to be slightly moist to “grab” the product and prevent from drifting. If the footing is dry, the product will fall through the footing and be difficult to dissolve and work into thefooting.

1. Groom arena footing to a depth of 1. between 1” and 1.5”

2. Distribute the recommended amount of product onto the arena footing using a hand-held broadcaster set at the SMALLEST HOLE for best results.

3. After distributing the product on the arena surface, groom the arena footing to a depth between 1” and 1.5”. This “sets” the product into the top surface of your footing.

4. Fully soak the arena with a reliable, steady source of water. Soak the arena footing to the base without pooling water or flooding an area.

5. For best results, stay off arena footing for 8-12 hours and let the footing “rest”.

6. After the footing has “rested” - lightly water the arena footing and thoroughly groom to the base.

7. Your arena footing will require a small amount of product every 3-4 months. This will replace the product which biodegrades. Plan on adding 20% of the original amount on a 3 to 4 month basis. The time between adding extra product may vary based on the type of footing and usage.

8. For best results, install ONLY the recommended amount of product.

9. Do not let the arena footing completely dry out before adding water. Maintain a regular watering and grooming schedule to have best results.
