1 What is in ARENACLEAR arena dust control?

ARENACLEAR is a Hydrophilic proprietary liquid concentrated agricultural mineral soil conditioner approved in the state of CA since 1971. 


How much does ARENACLEAR cost?
For a 10,000 sq. ft. (80’x125’) arena (outdoors) the cost will be approximately 6 cents per sq. ft. for the first year and approximately 3 cents for subsequent applications. For indoor arenas, the typical the cost will be 3 cents per sq. ft., per year.

ARENACLEAR is a complete dust control. 

First: ARENACLEAR is a hydrophilic natural soil conditioner when applied to an arena or paddock surfaces (per the instructions), it will permeate the footing & increase absorption of water. It also allows the soil to retain up to 300% more moisture. 

Second: ARENACLEAR holds water deeper & longer, reducing the amount of water needed to keep a healthier riding surface & surrounding environment. 

Third: It combines & bonds dust particles & fines to create larger particles that defy gravity. The heavier the particles laden with water, the stronger the gravitational pull holds them down. 

Fourth: The footing’s particles laden with water rebound & cushion the footing, which horses love & consistently feel confident in to give their best performances. 

Fix please SOMEHOW SKEWED THIS CELL UP. Does ARENCLEAR have an odor, sticky, oily or slippery? ARENACLEAR has no odor, is non-sticky, non-slippery & not a petroleum or oil product.
FIX PLEASE. Who needs ARENACLEAR dust control? Answer: Let's start with your horses, who typically live within a short distance of their dusty arenas. Breathing DUST 24/7. ARENACLEAR helps protect everyone & animals' respiratory health from the grave, harmful effects of fugitive dust, bacteria, and viruses. This list would include students, trainers,barn workers, riders, their siblings, parents & even your neighbors.
10 What equipment do I need to apply ARENACLEAR?

For a 10,000 sq.ft. arena, a Lawn & Garden hose-end sprayer & a water hose.  Larger areas may use a gator with a tank or a truck with a tank. Please call us for TANK formulas. 

How does ARENACLEAR help with the freezing issue of the arena surface?

ARENACLEAR allows the water to be held in the dust particles thereby making it more difficult for the footing to freeze & thaw if it does. We have been told by our clients their arenas never freeze in WS, MN or CO. 

REMOVE THIS ONE: What will happen if ARENACLEAR is applied and some of the product happens to get on grass or pasture areas?
Well, if you water the grass or pasture land after ARENACLEAR gets on it, it will only help the grass/pasture grow better. It is an agricultural mineral.
REMOVE THIS ONE : Can ARENACLEAR be used in stalls & paddocks for dust. Yes, it control dust & odor too.
REMOVE THIS ONE Do I need to follow the initial application procedure when applying my second gallon of ARENACLEAR?
For the second application, apply the ARENACLEAR and then one light watering with plain water, approximately 5-10 minutes.
RWhat is the coverage of a gallon of ARENACLEAR?
One gallon should cover approximately 10,000 sq. ft or an 80’ x 125” arena.
6 What if my horses or other animals should eat the dirt where ARENACLEAR has been sprayed?

It is totally safe and non-toxic, safe for cats, dogs, paws, hooves & grandchildren. 

Please REMOVE THIS CELL Is ARENACLEAR sticky? I condensed this.
REMOVE THIS ONE PLEASE Should I wet my arena prior to applying ARENACLEAR?

We recommend that your arena be dry prior to applying ARENACLEAR, since you are going to be putting water on while applying ARENACLEAR and after initial application.

PLEASE REMOVE THIS CELL Can I groom my arena after applying ARENACLEAR?
PLEASE FIX 8 Q. Can we use the arena after applying ARENACLEAR? A. Yes you may use your arena but DON'T DRAG it until the entire water & dry day(s) process is finished.
Once I have applied ARENACLEAR how often will I have to water my arena?

ARENACLEAR does not eliminate the need for watering. It depends on the amount of usage & temperature.  However, you will still need to water as needed, it just won’t be as often or as much before ARENACLEAR.

When I apply ARENACLEAR to my OUTDOOR arena the first time and two days later we get rain all day will the product be washed away?

Well, that is hard to say, but most likely the product will be pushed deep into the ground and this will mean that the top layer will not have been treated with ARENACLEAR. It would probably be better to wait until there is at least 5-7 days when you won’t have any rain. This will give ARENACLEAR a chance to work on the soil and prepare it for water.

REMOVE PLEASE Will ARENACLEAR work on my outdoor arena that is very dusty in the summer, but we get lots of rain during the wet season? Will it wash ARENACLEAR away?
ARENACLEAR treats the soil so it will allow water to be retained in the soil, which means you won’t have to water as much. However, during the wet season, it also allows the water to permeate deep into the ground (up to 40”) so you don’t have a mud bog. When ARENACLEAR is used outdoors, we recommend at least 2 applications the first year and then 1 application the 2nd year. This should make your arena dust free and also give you a better riding condition.


It changes the structure of the soil so dust particles come together to form granules of soil. These granules of soil then hold the moisture inside, instead of having the water go around the outside of them. When this change occurs, it helps the soil retain up to 300% more moisture, which means you can reduce the amount of water you apply. It hold the moisture deeper into the soil and it doesn’t evaporate as quickly.

ARENACLEAR is non-toxic, environmentally & ecologically safe to use and has been used in the agricultural industry since 1959. It has been an approved agricultural mineral in the State of California since 1971. It actually helps grow bigger & better crops.
REMOVE THIS CELL PLEASE What if I don’t have a big spray tank to apply ARENACLEAR?
It is easy, you buy an Ortho lawn sprayer (hose end type) and put a quart of A/C into the container, set the dial on ½-1 oz. Per gal. Rate and begin spraying. The quart should cover approximately 2500 sq. ft.
REMOVE THIS CELL PLEASE Do I need to apply ARENACLEAR at the same rate as the initial application?
I would recommend it for the first year of applications, however, if you want to control the dust and reduce your costs, you could cut the rate in half and apply it more often during the 2nd and subsequent years.
Can ARENACLEAR be used in other areas besides arenas?
Yes, ARENACLEAR can be used on any type of soil/ground. It can be used on paddocks, barn stalls (helps control urine), walkways, etc. It can be used on any area that has a mud problem.
REMOVE THIS CELL Can I quit watering my arena if I use ARENACLEAR?
No, you will need to water your arena, however, when you water you reatcivate the ARENACLEAR. When you notice dust coming up off the ground approximately 2 feet, it is time to water again. Once you have applied ARENACLEAR per the instructions, you should only need to water as needed, (that could be every 2nd or 3rd day, maybe longer).
Where can I find the application instructions for ARENACLEAR?

We hope they are in your box but if not you can visit our DOWNLOAD APPLICATION INSTRUCTIONS on the front page on our website or call us. 

How many times do I have to apply ARENACLEAR?

We recommend 1 application the first year for an indoor arena, then annually or as needed. Outdoors, it depends on Nature, location, use, temperatures but one application should last about a year. 


REMOVE THIS ONE PLEASEThe base of my arena is rock fines; it’s hard packed. Will this keep ARENACLEAR from doing its job?
Actually ARENACLEAR should work fine on the rock fines. It will help to keep the footing from becoming hard packed. It should also help with your dragging or loosening of your arena footing.
REMOVE THIS CELL.Will ARENACLEAR help to keep my footing from freezing and becoming rock solid?
Actually, ARENACLEAR helps keep the ground from freezing as quickly as it would under normal conditions. You will probably find that you don’t need to apply water or as much as you think you would in order to keep the dust under control during the winter months.
REMOVE PLEASE I have put Calcium Chloride on my arena, will ARENACLEAR affect it?
ARENACLEAR was developed to take out the salts in farm land and to bring back the natural state of the ground. It will have some affect on the Calcium Chloride. It might even make it work better without having to apply another layer of Calcium Chloride to your arena footing.
REMOVE PLEASE THIS CELL Will ARENACLEAR work on sawdust/soil footing?
ARENACLEAR is primarily for use on soils, however, with sawdust mixed into the soil/sand it should have some effect on the control of dust. It does help with the fine powder that develops with horses pounding on the arena footing.
I have a sand & rubber mixed arena footing, will ARENACLEAR work on this type of footing?

ARENACLEAR works on sand, dirt or any combo & it will not affect the rubber in the footing.

What is the best temperature or time to apply ARENACLEAR?
It is best to apply ARENACLEAR when the ground temperature is at least 50 degrees. Why? Because the micro-organisms in A/C slow down when the ground temp is below 50 degrees.
PLESE REMOVE THIS CELL Will ARENACLEAR keep my vegetation down in my round pen?
ARENACLEAR will control vegetation, however, if water gets on it within a few days you are going to have some healthy vegetation, rather than no vegetation. It is not meant to be a vegetation controller.
PLEASE REMOVE THIS CELL How will ARENACLEAR affect my ground water and runoff?
PLEASE REMOVE THIS CELL How will ARENACLEAR help with my muddy paddocks and then rock hard paddocks after the mud goes away?
ARENACLEAR changes the soil, so it will break up the clay, which holds the water and makes the mud, when this happens it allows for water to permeate up to 40” deep, thereby eliminating mud and standing water. One of the benefits of adding ARENACLEAR to clay soils is that is changes them into a nice loam like soil that holds moisture and won’t get hard packed like clay soils tend to do.
PLEASE REMOVE THIS CELL I live in a cold climate, what do I do about watering when the weather is below freezing?
ARENACLEAR changes the structure of the soil, so water goes inside the soil particles and holds the water. This means it takes longer for the soil to freeze and it also keeps the dust down. It doesn’t mean that the ground will not freeze at extremely cold temperatures, however, it will take longer for this happen. On the reverse side, the ground will also thaw out quicker.
REMOVE THIS CELL PLEASE Do I need to drag it after the application process?

You do not have to just DRAG your arena when it needs to be dragged.
