Our fibre is made of high quality, upcycled, new carpet loom end fibres which have been laboratory tested to ensure they are fully synthetic (so don’t rot down) & are contaminant-free. The fibre should be used with sand (either existing or new sand).
Yes, many people add fibres to their existing surface with excellent results, although obviously the end result varies according to the condition of the original surface. Contact us to find out if your current arena surface is suitable.
See our Prices Page for examples of typical costs. This includes examples of fibre only and for sand and fibre. Costs vary according to equine discipline, location and services required. We recommend a mix rate for Flat Work and Dressage at 3.5 kg per square metre, for Jumping 4 to 4.5 kg per square metre.
To give you an idea of costs, the standard price for fibre only (excluding any promotions), is £1755 (excl. vat & delivery). This example is for fibre supply only. We also offer fibre installation, sand and fibre installation and complete arena construction.

Please beware of cheaper equestrian fibres which can be full of rubbish and may also rot down quickly. Endurance Arena Fibre is contaminant-free, pre-consumer fibre which is fully synthetic and so greater longevity.
Our upcycled new carpet loom end fibres are pre-consumer carpet fibres. Our arena fibres are made from pre-consumer carpet and meet all the Environment Agency's regulations - see Environmental Approvals here. This means they have NOT been used as carpet so do not have the risk of dangerous objects such as nails and carpet grippers. Our carpet fibres are laboratory quality assured. Rigorous testing confirms no contaminants or organic material, so they can be trusted for quality & durability.
Our fibres are made from NEW upcycled carpet loom end fibres and are NOT post consumer carpet fibres. This means they have NOT been used as carpet, so do not have the risk of dangerous objects such as nails and carpet grippers. Our carpet fibres are laboratory quality assured. Rigorous testing confirms no contaminants, pollutants or organic material, so they can be trusted for quality & durability.
Our fibres have been through rigorous laboratory testing for organic material & contaminants. Test results showed the sample mainly contained PP fibre, with small amounts of PET and PA. All these fibres are synthetic.
Endurance Arena Fibre is classified as Green Waste. New Material manufactured for one application up-cycled for alternative use, in this case Equine Fibres classified as new material. Our fibres are made from high quality up-cycled product, which is rigorously tested to ensure contaminant free. We comply with all environmental regulations. Our arena fibres are made from pre-consumer carpet and meet all the Environment Agency's regulations - see Environmental Approvals here. Our business is operated with due regard to the impact on the environment & is run as efficiently as possible, with as little waste as possible.
No, we do not sell rubber surfaces. We only supply high quality fibres and install sand and fibre arena surfaces.
When added to good quality sand, Endurance arena fibre help provide the right balance of stability & impact absorption to support your horse without sapping its energy. The fibres help you 'ride on top' of the surface, whilst still cushioning your ride.
Endurance fibre should be mixed with arena sand. This can be existing arena sand or new sand. High quality sand is preferable. Contact us for more information on what type of sand is best.
No, Endurance fibre should be integrated with the sand and is not to be used as a topper. This ensures a long-lasting, high performance arena surface, unlike a topper which lies on top of the surface. Fibre which is left on top of the sand does not improve the quality of the sand surface underneath, so often resulting in a poor base surface. The top fibre is also more likely to move.
Life expectancy (with proper care & maintenance) is estimated to be 10 - 15yrs. Our fibres are fully synthetic with no organic material. This helps prevent rotting, resulting in long-lasting performance. Our fibres have been rigorously laboratory tested - the results showed no organic material & no contaminants.
The fibres have insulating properties & so reduces freezing. The fibres also help with drainage & are moisture retaining, so reduce dust.
Endurance arena fibres help reduce arena maintenance, but ALL arena surfaces need maintenance. Visit our Arena Fibre Maintenance page for more information.
We recommend using a maintenance harrow, with harrow tynes & compacting rollers, attached to either an ATV/UTC or tractor. Visit our Arena Fibre Maintenance page for more information.
