Hippotex®

What is Hippotex®?
Hippotex® is an additional, rotproof surface cover, for new and already existing riding grounds. The product then has to be added onto consisting sandy soil, creating a stable and low-maintenance riding ground surface. Hippotex® consists of fine shreds with fibers (approximately two times four centimeters) and is environmentally friendly. 

Like All Weather Tuft®, Hippotex® consists of fine shreds. The difference is the mat consisting of fibers that is being shredded into the final product. Hippotex® ensures a quickly stabilizing tread layer with many advantages for hard soils, and has proven to have a disburdening effect on the horse. 

The difference between All Weather Tuft® and Hippotex®:
Hippotex® does a better job in stabilizing a heavy ground than All Weather Tuft®;
All Weather Tuft® has a better effect on ground that is too wet;
All Weather Tuft® does not wear out as much as Hippotex®;
All Weather Tuft® has a hard bottom side, consisting of polypropylene and foam parts;
Hippotex® has a soft bottom side and is free of foam parts.

The advantages that come with Hippotex®:
Optimal stabilization of the tread layer, even under intensive use.
The ground stays wet for a longer period of time, when irrigated during the summer.
Easily adaptable to new soils, or soils with drainage possibilities.
An affordable solution.

Hippotex® is being used in equestrian sport arenas and offers an excellent (cheaper) alternative to Geopad and Polyfibers. 

How to apply Hippotex®?
Hippotex® has to be added as a top layer onto a sandy subsurface, with at least 15 to 20 centimeters of sand in height. First level off the riding ground, to then add Hippotex® and distribute it evenly. Afterwards, if desired, solidify it with a rotary harrow. In case the ground is wet, we advise you to combine your Hippotex® with a drainage system. Just like All Weather Tuft®, Hippotex® can be used on a gravelly soil, without a subsurface of sand.
