Sand is the most important ingredient
for an equestrian surface. Here at Kilcarrig Quarries we offer a high quality natural Granitic Quartz sand,
our sand is washed using Cyclonic Technology
which keeps our sand particles natural while removing Silt. Natural unwashed sand contains variable levels of Silt as it is a naturally occurring material. Over time Silt can accumulation in drainage pipes which in time can lead to ponding of water. Our equestrian sand is not a limestone based sand which makes it resistant to weathering and will last longer in an arena footing. Our sand is silica free which helps to reduce airborne particles.
Our equestrian sand tends to be Angular to sub-rounded which help to:
- Aid moisture retention
- Provides Good drainage
- Lessens compaction and provides traction
