Why Do Horse Owners Need GGT (German Geo Textile) Footing?

Ever since people started using riding arenas when working with their horses, they were experimenting with the large variety of materials for the use as footing. In former times pure grass riding places were created, but soon one noticed that by constant riding on the hoof track, the soil consolidated and with rainfalls, it turned to a mud bath. People went searching for alternatives for grass footing and discovered the sand. Over years, sand and arenas with sand – wood mixture were the standard. Some arena builders wanted to build something better and searched for new materials, which they found in plastic chaff. Since the beginning of the 90's the first, new “arena footings were created with geo textile or felt chaffs in Germany. This new footing, which was regarded very critically at first by equestrians, owners of stable and arenas, turned out to be the optimal footing for dressage and jumping in the last 10 years. Footing with felt and fibers proved to be the most successful solution in Germany and internationally.

Introducing The Butterfly Mat For Your Arena Base!
One of our newest additions to our product line is The Butterfly Mat. This is used for arena base drainage, water conservation and concussion reduction. The matting system supports the positive characteristics of a GGT-Footing ™ arena.  Drainage, right moisture content, cushion etc.

This matting system is perfect for any flooring that has concrete as a base! The use of arena mats can also significantly reduce the cost of traditional layering methods with gravel, extra sand and the labor involved in the construction.  Now with the GGT Butterfly Mats™ all authorized GGT-Footing ™ installers will have additional options to offer their prospective clients. A new design that will allow arena builders and farm owners a choice on how they construct their arena base.

By utilizing the GGT Butterfly Mat™ system, one can protect their horse’s joints and tendons from long-term concussion and instability due to slippage from traditional footing surfaces.  The typical force of a striking hoof is absorbed by the mat this plays an important role in maintaining soundness.  The drainage holes in the mat allow excess water to drain quickly, thus allowing arenas to be used quicker after a rain.

The GGT BUTTERFLY ™ design also has water retention system  that minimizes  respiratory damage due to dusty footings  by capturing small amounts of water thru a cup design .The moisture is then released into the arena sand which not only helps with dust control, but  reduces the need for watering in some instances.

GGT BUTTERFLY Mats™ are manufactured from recycled material. In this way, our company actively contributes to environmental protection and sustainable development.

Note: THE GGT BUTTERFLY matting system is used in two arenas at The Kentucky Horse Park
