      GGT Special mixtures:

      Depending on the customer and requirements, a wide variety of materials can be mixed, so that easy and user-friendly mixing in the riding field is ensured. In the spring mixes, a higher proportion of fibers is added to improve the shear strength of the soil. This also improves stability in the case of pedal layers for gallop racetracks or tracks or riding surfaces for carriage riding. Customized mixtures are no problem for us.

    • GGT-Equilastic - Tune-up your Footing

      ggt equilastic pur

      GGT-Equilastic Pur

      Equilastic is an additive for riding surfaces which is made from controlled new goods (EPDM) and is used for riding surfaces (outdoor as well as indoor arenas). More elasticity in the footing sustainably improves the rideability and protects the horses’ joints in the long run. In addition with the suitable sand, the product may help the surface to get looser at simultaneous shear strength.

      The product prevents soil compaction and may also in case of strongly compacted surfaces upgrade the footing by getting more elastic again.

      GGT Equilastic Mischung

      GGT-Equilastic Mix

      Our GGT-Equilastic Mix is a combination with our GGT Geo chopped nonwoven. That way, you get a blend that is highly versatile in riding surfaces which thus will be improved.

      Pre-mixing the materials in our plant optimally combines the advantages of both products in a user-friendly way. The GGT chopped nonwovens improve shearstrength as well as moisture retention of the footing. They sustainably prevent compacting of the riding surfaces and have been proven for decades as additives for riding surfaces around the world.

      By adding GGT Equilastic the surface will get slip-resistant and stable without getting too deep. Offering good spring and energy recovery in the riding sand this product is gentle to the horses’ joints.

      The patented riding surface for Western riders: GGT Western

      The Western sector is one of the major disciplines of equitation. More than 32,000 registered Quarter Horses and 5,700 breeders speak for themselves. Nowhere outside the American continent will you find more Western horses than in Germany.

      But so far there have not been any professional solutions for the construction of riding arenas that were designed especially for the Western riders and work with textile additives. This is changing now with the GGT Western riding surface by Polywert GmbH in Bobingen.

      We developed a footing for the Western riders’ special requirements which ideally accommodates your needs. Get to know the GGT-Western-System! It is worth doing it!

      GGT Western

      The first riding surface in the Western sector that meets the requirements of all Western disciplines

      No matter if Reining, Cutting, Pleasure, Cow-Horse, Barrel-Race, Trail: This footing has been especially developed and tested for the Western equitation.

      The footings that have been so far established and approved worldwide in dressage and jumping had been a no-no for the Western equitation. It has been claimed that the requirements in this equitation discipline would be too different. GGT-Western is changing this.

      This new footing had been successfully tested by a professional for several months. Its special blend of different components makes this footing to what it is:

      • shear-resistant and compact for the Cutting work with cattle

      • sufficiently loose and smooth for Western dressage

      • slidable for sliding stops

      • easy to maintain and durable

      • dust-free to take account of man’s and horse’s health

      • hoof-friendly and moisture regulating

      • the additives are tested for harmful substances and highly loadable
