Using sand that is not designed for equestrian use is likely to result in an unsuccessful arena surface. Sand with a rounded grain creates a manege that rides deep, therefore increasing fatigue and possible injury to your horse. We understand the importance of using equestrian silica sand with a subangular grain shape and low clay content as this provides efficient drainage along with a cushioned, firm ride.
As a division of one of the UK’s leading aggregate suppliers, we’re committed to the ongoing sourcing and testing of new supplies of equine sand in all areas of the country. We’ve built up a large portfolio of high grade riding arena sands across most of the country, the most popular of which comes from Redhill.
Redhill Silica Sand has accounted for over 50% of all horse arena sand supplied to the market to date. Contact us today for a free quote.

Silica Sand Installation
The correct silica sand is one component to any successful horse riding arena. Unsuitable as a stand-alone arena surface, we strongly recommend you combine with rubber chippings, stabilising fibre or both. Once combined, the surface will need to be kept moist to stay at optimum performance.
Other surface options
Our pre-mixed silica sand and fibre surface Fibremix is an ideal option for those looking for a surface that is quick and easy to install.
