Why you should always reinforce the ground on your general equine walking areas is to prevent ruts from forming in the ground that can cause puddles. The big issue with ruts is that weeds and poisonous plants thrive on poorly kept pastures. This can be detrimental to your horses’ health for relatively obvious reasons as well as any other animals that may be wandering around your equine area.
Having deep and soggy mud on your pastures can also be a huge burden to horses, it means they have to work a lot harder just to move as well as having mud stick to their hooves and forcing them to carry extra weight, this could be especially dangerous in older horses as their joints are already deteriorating so forcing them to trudge through deep mud would just make them deteriorate even faster.
To reinforce your horse walking areas is to keep the ground level, for all kinds of usage. Our grids will keep the ground level no matter what the ground is being used for so no more trucks churning up your ground and struggling to walk through with your horse.
As well as not having to worry about your ground being churned up you no longer have to worry about the ground forming ruts and becoming a mini marshland as with our grids they provide a permeable surface meaning all rain fall and liquid can run straight through the grids and into the ground without causing ground movement. This ultimately means a safer surface for you and your horses and less potential slips and trips for your everyone and everything.
To utilise our grids is to create a comfier and more utilisable walking area for your horses.
Reinforcing the ground gives them much more support and grip when walking than if it were just blank ground.
Spread some seeds around and you can have a beautiful lawn. And don’t worry if the horse might damage the grass since the reinforced ground will prevent horses from compressing the soil. Not only the grass will stay pretty, but it also maintains free drainage at all times. This is why you won’t get muddy puddles with a reinforced ground.
