Dust Control
Keeping dust under control has long been a problem for large arena facilities managers and individual horse owners alike. For years, simply spraying water on the surface has been the solution of choice. With water costs rising and environmental concerns taking the spotlight, innovation was long overdue. The team at CALPAM AG Products formulated a safe, new product to keep dust down and reduce watering intervals. ArenaGuard is veterinarian and trainer recommended, safe (non-toxic) and can be used for both indoor and outdoor applications. Based in and around California’s central valley, the team at CALPAM understands the unique needs and requirements of the most demanding ranchers and environments. It was through these partnerships that ArenaGuard was born. ArenaGuard Dust Control is a next generation dust control product. Engineered to save time and money, the simple yet effective blend of CALPAM Polyacrylamide and Gypsum offer unparalleled water savings. Once applied, ArenaGuard penetrates the arena surface to attract and hold water. Applying ArenaGuard is simple and effective in reducing watering intervals while keeping dust under control. ArenaGuard is available in 5-Gallon EZ pour pails for $349. As a special offer to readers of Horseman’s News, use the code: HMN21 to receive FREE SHIPPING.

West Coast Rubber Recycling
GroundRubber Horse Arena Cover is a unique rubber product that offers one of the safest and most resilient footings available for horses. GroundRubber can dramatically enhance the performance and comfort of your horses, and is appreciated by Dressage and Hunter Jumpers alike. GroundRubber is also odorless, and requires less watering and dragging than other footing products. GroundRubber may cost a bit more initially, but it has a virtually unlimited lifespan, compared to other surfaces. It only needs to be installed once, it doesn’t wash away, and is extremely cost effective to maintain. GroundRubber has been shown to absorb much more impact than sand, shavings and mulch products. It effectively reduces the repeated concussion horses sustain from being ridden on hard surfaces, enabling them to perform at their best. GroundRubber stall mats offer all the same benefits as the Horse Arena Cover with the advantage of being very easy to clean. This soft, durable surface provides more than enough cushioning support for your horse, and significantly reduces the need for stall bedding. You will virtually eliminate mucking and digging, saving time and money. For more information and free estimates, call us at (831)634.2800, send an email to or visit
