We LOVE our Crumb Rubber !

In October of 2007 Moccasin Lake Ranch purchased and installed 44,000 pounds of crumb rubber footing in the riding arena. This upgrade took place, primarily, for the benefit of our wonderful equine friends and teachers ... think of it as Nikes for horses! The new surface reduces joint stress, extending and improving the useful years of our horses. In additon, we have found that it extends our riding season by about a month in the late fall and allows us to start earlier in the spring. Look at this photo taken on the first day of Spring!
