stresan® Equestrian sand
stresan® Kirchhellener Sand provides the ideal footing for every riding surface. We know what we are talking about - as an established family business, Stremmer Sand + Kies GmbH has been quarrying sand and gravel from the Kirchheller Heide in North Rhine-Westphalia for over 80 years.
Back in the 1980s we discovered that Kirchhellener Sand makes an ideal footing for equestrian sports and so we developed stresan® for perfect surfaces for riding arenas. Our stresan® equestrian sand mixes are used at riding facilities across Europe. Our philosophy of ‘progress through change’ means that we continually test and enhance stresan® so that we can always provide you with the ideal equestrian sand.

Our family history
For more than 80 years our family business is extracting sand and gravel from our sand pits in Kirchhellen. Formerly only for the construction materials industry – but in the beginning of the eighties we discovered that stresan® has unique features which characterize the ideal surface for equestrian sports.
The interplay between sub-base and tread layer is crucial for outdoor riding arenas. Stremmer Sand + Kies GmbH products include stresan® A all-round sand, which drains off the surface and thus requires no drainage system. If your riding arena already has a drainage system, our permeable surfaces will work well for you. The right materials will keep your arena ready for use, even in bad weather conditions.
The paddock is a good additional choice of space for providing your horses sufficient turnout during the course of the day. We also supply stresan® N Paddock – a very permeable sand specially tailored to paddock surface requirements so that your horses can sufficiently move about, even in bad weather, and have a soft place to lie.
We’d be happy to set up a personal appointment to advise you on the right sand for your needs. Because equestrian sand requirements are just as individual as the sport itself. That’s why we’ve developed 18 different stresan® products to meet the diverse demands of riding surfaces.
