Different equestrian disciplines place different demands on an equestrian surface. That’s why we offer various standard mixes that are suitable for both indoor and outdoor use. And should you require an all-purpose equestrian surface, we also have the appropriate product for you.
Regular maintenance is of high importance to guarantee the long-lasting quality of the equestrian surface. This is where equestrian arena levellers play a crucial role. We offer first class levellers which are particularly suited for use on our stresan® equestrian surfaces so that you can look after your equestrian arena.
The development of equestrian surfaces made of sand is our speciality. However, we also know how an equestrian arena should look like beneath the surface layer. We gladly advise you when choosing the right material for your equestrian arena and deliver in established stresan®-quality.
FOR YOUR EQUESTRIAN DISCIPLINE
If you need an equestrian surface on which you can practice multiple disciplines, our all-round equestrian sand stresan® A is the right product for you. It is extracted directly from nature and does not have to be mixed with other types of sand or finishing. stresan® A can be used as a riding surface both in the riding arena and, where infrastructure allows, in outside arenas and paddocks. Its optimal water retention capability and its ability to dispel excess water across the surface where there is a lateral slope of 1 to 2% is particularly valued in exterior use. This not only makes it particularly dust-free and stable, but also creates optimal penetration for your horse’s hooves.
In addition to our all-purpose stresan® A equestrian sand, we also provide specially adapted sand mixes for dressage, jumping, lunging or vaulting. According to the discipline, we mix stresan® with certified fibres, tested sieving materials and/or other types of sand. We are happy to advise you on the selection of your optimal riding surface and always take your individual situation into account.
The riding surface’s drainage capability plays a particularly decisive role in the quality of outdoor riding facilities. In addition to our water-dispelling all-purpose stresan® A sand, we also offer riding surfaces which are particularly permeable to water. The sand retains enough water to ensure the optimal density at all times, but at the same time it lets excess water drain away. According to the discipline, our high-quality sieving materials, certified fibres and other types of sand are also used to ensure that the riding area remains usable, even under worst conditions. We also provide suitable surfaces for paddocks and uncovered round pens.
Western riders require a special surface for this special discipline in equestrian sport. We can offer this in the form of our stresan® Western Mixtures, which do not only allow you to make spectacular sliding stops and quick spins on a firm surface but also help look after the horse’s joints and therefore its health. Amateur as well as professional Western riders of this spectacular sport both appreciate the special characteristics of our equestrian surfaces.
A perfect showground needs not only the highest quality, resilience and aesthetics. Riding competition arenas and fairs often have to be constructed and then dismantled within a short period of time. To meet the needs of our customers, we have developed special equestrian sand that can be used immediately after installation. Organizers of the best international events appreciate this reliability. This applies to large trade fairs, equestrian tournaments at world class level and top shows alike.
FOR LONG-LASTING QUALITY OF YOUR EQUESTRIAN SURFACE
For the usage on our stresan® surface mixtures you should use a riding arena leveller which is especially suited for surfaces with aggregates such as screening material or fibres. These are also available from us for different tow hitches and in various widths. Call us or contact us via e-mail. We will gladly advise you which model is best suited for your equestrian surface.
We recommend the equestrian arena leveller “Traditional” for equestrian surfaces of pure sand. This sturdy steel frame construction made of powder-coated round tubes is very easy to operate and uses a heavy levelling blade to compact and smooth over. No additional equipment is needed to clear hoof prints due to its construction and mode of operation. The arena leveller „Traditional“ is also available directly from us for different tow hitches (three-point linkage) and in various widths.
THE RIGHT FOUNDATION FOR YOUR EQUESTRIAN ARENA
The development of equestrian surfaces made from sand is our speciality. However, we also know how an equestrian arena should look like – even under the surface. The selection of the correct materials for the foundation layer is essential for the quality of the equestrian arena. That’s why we also offer these in the same proven stresan® quality.ENQUIRY

Equestrian surfaces have to be renewed after a certain amount of time. Whether it is natural sand or enhanced with chippings or fibres: We’ll cost-effectively collect your stresan® equestrian surfaces and professionally dispose of them in an environmentally friendly way. By providing this service we want to avoid our customers having to pay more for the disposal than for the sand they have ordered. We will also dispose of sand and surface mixtures from other providers. Extra costs could, however, be incurred due to the often higher level of contamination from mixing in synthetic materials. When purchasing your equestrian surface you should therefore make sure that disposing of it will not become more expensive than buying it.
Please use the contact form to order and for questions relating to our products and services. We will get back to you as soon as possible. Or call us on: +49 (0)2045 9542-0. Our distribution partner MSW Parkway AG in Switzerland is available on +41 41 921 7544.
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.
To enable you to show on first sight that you count on quality and safety with your equestrian sand, we developed our stresan® online logo for you. You can embed it in your website so that anybody can see, that you are riding on our stresan® – Kirchhellener Sand. You are very welcome to download the online logo with just one click at “Downloads”. We would be glad if you would give us short notice when you have embedded the online logo.
We offer stresan® in a variety of mixtures. Depending on which discipline the surface is intended for and the requirements which need to be met, we mix fibres or screening material into the sand. Our stresan® A does not, however, contain any additives and is therefore a purely natural product.
We can offer a suitable sand mixture for all equestrian disciplines. In case you can’t find what you are looking for with our standard mixtures, we will be happy to advise you regarding an individual mix.
When used outside, stresan® A (without additional materials) dispels excess water across the surface, making the construction of a drainage system under the riding surface unnecessary. However, this is only the case when your area has a lateral slope of 1 to 2%. The foundation of your riding arena must also be stable and have a sufficient load-bearing capacity.
Additionally, please ensure that there are no barriers at the end of the slope, as this can lead to a build-up of water. In contrast, our riding surfaces made from sand mixed with fibres and sieving material are very permeable to water and require suitable infrastructure.
A further measure which is important when using equestrian sand is regular maintenance. The best way to keep your surface in good condition can be found in our maintenance instruction guide which is available via our download area. If you need any further assistance, please do not hesitate to contact us.
Irrigation is one of the regular maintenance actions which should be carried out. Advice regarding irrigation can be found in our maintenance instruction guide.
The durability of an equestrian surface depends on many individual factors such as the regular and effective maintenance and the intensity of usage.
