Equitan is a three layer system that is an ideal solution for converting hard, uneven, muddy horse stalls and walkways into comfortable, safe, and attractive surfaces. Equitan’s base layer creates seamless cushioning for horses’ hooves and joints. The seal layer provides a barrier to protect against moisture and waste penetration, and the topcoat includes an additive to stop and prevent bacterial growth.
Healthy training and effective progress require an optimal riding surface. Choose a footing-sand mix with Melos quality, its Made in Germany. Equitan Footing supports both the horse and rider with the perfect balance between surface elasticity and stability. Spine, tendons, and joints are effectively cushioned – even under the heavy strains caused by movement.
