Equestrian sand must have very special characteristics in order to be used as a riding surface. Our stresan® sand is unique in that its fine stresan® grain-size curve creates an excellent water retention capacity. This reduces dust accumulation and only compresses the sand to such an extent that it offers the hoof optimal penetration and stability. Our stresan® also has a very high silica content. A silica grain has a high degree of hardness, making it more resistant to grain pulverisation and abrasion, both of which lead to the accumulation of dust. The minimal amount of slurry materials is also a sign of the high quality of our sand.
