The Benefits of Dust Halt
Low-maintenance, eco-friendly, pet safe.


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.

Heavy Duty

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.

Heavy Duty (1)

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.

Heavy Duty (2)

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.

Safer and More Cost-Effective than
Magnesium Chloride

When coating your arena for dust prevention, magnesium chloride is a popular option that equestrians widely use. However, it has major downsides that most riders do not talk about, such as potentially harming a horse’s performance and health. Dust Halt™, after considering both options, is the practical, innovative choice that improves air quality for riders and horses.


If you own your own arena or equine business, Dust Halt™ will save you money immediately and in the long run. This 22 lb bucket, first, runs for a reasonable $399.00 while magnesium costs 5 to 6 times that amount. Other upfront costs, such as shipping, only cost $29.95 for Dust Halt™, but the competitor pallet will require $90-$149 for truck delivery. Once you apply the product in your arena, you do not have to reapply for 16 months, unlike the alternative that requires 3-8 bags every 12 months (which you can only apply for indoor arenas).


  • $399.00 for 22,000 Sq. Ft.
  • $29.95 easy shipping cost.
  • Indoor and outdoor arenas.
  • 1 bucket lasts for up to 16 months.
  • Pet-friendly; protects horse health.
  • Non-corrosive to arena.


  • $2000+ for 22,000 Sq. Ft.
  • $90-$149 truck delivery cost.
  • Indoor arenas only.
  • 3-8 bags lasts up to 12 months.
  • Dries horse hooves; leads to cracks and splits.

Finally, magnesium chloride, despite its common usage for arenas, actually harms your horse’s lifespan and their chance for competitions. You only need to look at your rusted arena to see the chemical is corrosive, dyring out your horse’s hooves. If you forget to hose down your horse’s feet after every arena run, the condition can worsen, leading to cracks and splits. On the flip side, Dust Halt™ is a pet-friendly and eco-friendly dust suppressant that does not risk you or your equine client’s horses.

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.
