Heather Mason's Recommendation...

"With the addition of my indoor arena and interior stalls, air quality became a concern. Arena Rx® has not only allowed for a dust-free environment, but also a consistent riding surface which is critical to limiting injuries when training horses for all levels and disciplines. I would strongly recommend Arena Rx® to anyone who wants an environment that is dust-free and safe for horse and rider."

In 2008, Glen Emeril and Heather Mason started competing together at 3rd and 4th Levels. They had an amazing year where he finished as Champion USDF Horse of the Year at both Third s. and Fourth Level.  At the Region 1 Championships, he was Reserve Champion at 3rd Level Freestyle and Champion at 3rd Level. He also won the 4th Level Test 2 class and the High Score Pony Club Award at Dressage At Devon.

In 2009, Glen Emeril and Heather Mason competed at the Dressage at Devon CDI in the Small Tour (8th in the Intermediare I and 3rd in the Freestyle), the NEDA CDI (7th Prix St Georges, 3rd intermediare I, 5th Freestyle), the Centerline at HITS CDI (3rd Prix St Georges, 4th Intermediare I and 1st Freestyle), CDI Raleigh and Dressage At Lamplight CDI (6th Prix St Georges). He also finished 3rd at the Region 8 Championships at Prix St Georges.     

In 2010, Glen Emeril was invited to compete at the USEF/Collecting Gaits Farm Festival of Champions, where he finished 10th Overall (8th Prix St Georges, 15th Intermediare I, 5th Freestyle -http://youtu.be/9g32iN_kYDU). In the Small Tour at the Saugerties CDI, he placed 2nd in both the Prix St Georges (http://youtu.be/0jQwfuEmaDs) and Intermediare I and won the Freestyle. At the ESDCTA Memorial CDI, he was 5th in the Prix St Georges, 3rd in the Intermediare I and then won the Freestyle. He was also named to the High Performance Developing Horse List for his accomplishments in 2009 and 2010.  

In 2012, Glen Emeril just did a couple of shows in the Prix St Georges and Intermediare I, scoring 69-74%, then we made the decision to keep him out of the competition arena until he was ready to move up.

In 2013, Glen Emeril made his Grand Prix debut at a USEF Recognized show and score 71+%!

Wendy Murdoch - The Murdoch Method


It is such a pleasure when I journey to Northern Colorado to  train at Last Resort Equestrian Center.  Consistency, balance and xxxx is critical to what I do and an arena treated with Arena Rx sure fits the definition of consistency.  From the first day to the last day, the footing is consistently the same.  It's wonderful to work in an arena where there is no dust.



Jim's Note:  Thanks, Wendy!  The feelings are mutual.  It's always a delight to have you at LREC.  Jim

I have used Arena Rx in my personal arena for over 12 years now.  I would use nothing else.  If you want the best equestrian dust control, then you need Arena Rx.  I recently replaced my footing and I immediately called and had you make a new application to control the dust.  Thanks for keeping my arena dust free! Nothing better.

Julie  Goodnight


Jim's Comment:  Thanks Julie!  Such a nice comment.  Since 1972, I have enjoyed the Salida, Colorado area and all of its amazing amenities.  Your place at the base of the Collegiates is beautiful and so well maintained.  It's a pleasure keeping your arena dust free and healthy for everyone.   Jim

We have used Arena Rx since 2007 for our indoor sand/rubber footing arena.  Dust control is fantastic.  It allows my husband, allergic to everything, to enjoy his time in this arena.  A year ago, we moved some of the treated footing into our outdoor arena. It has handled the winds of Wyoming.  With bone chilling cold winters, there is no concern about frozen footing either.

A picture is worth a thousand words and a few pictures are worth several thousand words.  I have attached four photos of the arena you just treated with Arena Rx. If you need anything else let me know and I will send it to you. Check out the pictures… our indoor arena has no dust and it’s great.  A real improvement.  Students no longer need to breathe dust!

I was simply amazed the first time I presented a clinic at a facility that used Arena Rx to control dust!  I have been in some very dusty arenas and what a difference the Arena Rx made!

Hi Jim,

Thanks for taking such good care of me!

I love my ArenaRX! Four years ago we put up 65×120 indoor arena here in Bozeman, MT. I spent a lot of time researching footing options to learn how best to reduce labor (such as watering) and dust. I ended up using a combination of sand and “natural fines” from a local quarry, about three inches, on top of a solid, packed base. Then we applied ArenaRx, and we were done! We had absolutely no dust! After about three years we added about 1/6 of the initial amount, focusing on the most traveled areas, as a preventative measure. We couldn’t be happier with the results!It is so nice to never have to worry about watering the footing, especially here in Montana. All we do is harrow about twice a year, which takes just a few minutes. I’m happy for anyone to stop by and visit, or to call me on my cell at 406-581-3333.

Kind Regards,

Wendy Lessley

I have had two arenas, one in Ohio and the other here in Colorado.  Each arena's footing was /is all rubber and I control the rubber dust with Arena Rx.  It is not slippery at all and is odorless.

Jim –

Attached please find photos of our method of application. I had intended to use my Polaris Ranger with a 75 gal weed sprayer in the back, but the ranger is out of commission, so we used the road waterer. Not as much control, but it got the job done.

Good 4 Dirt Note:  There are many methods to apply Arena RX® "Clean Air for Horse and Rider"™! Agricultural and industrial sprayers, waters trucks and water tanks like this one, I've heard of clients using sump pumps on top of IBC totes, and I've even had clients sprinkle native dirt stalls with four dollars sprinkling cans purchased at the local big box or the local hardware store. Arena RX® "Clean Air for Horse and Rider"™ is easy to self apply and for the do-it-yourself individual, we are here to advise and provide you with information, advice and helpful hints.

Breathing easy today. The arena where we board (Last Resort Equestrian Center) has awesome new footing! They brought in a few inches of washed sand a week or so ago, gave it time to dry thoroughly (read: “dust”, cough! cough! cough!) Yesterday Jim Goodyear of www.good4dirt.com sprayed the arena with Arena RX, LuAnn harrowed, and then Darren and I were able to safely ride in the arena immediately. Absolutely zero dust. Zero. No smell, no fumes, no dust. Environmentally safe, too. Wow.
Thanks LuAnn Goodyear and Jim!

Tired of dust? Tired of watering every few day? Tired of lugging around and draining hoses in the winter? Tired of that cold cave-like or humid-muggy feeling after watering? Worried about using corrosive and toxic chemicals that really aren’t that inexpensive after-all? Worried about other unknown?  If so then call Jim.

Over nine years ago I got tired of hauling hoses around every week to water the sand, especially in winter when they had to be drained and stored to prevent freezing.
After much research I choose the ArenaRx product and had it sprayed. Amazing, not problem with my lungs, horses lungs, feet, etc. and NO dust and I mean NO dust. NO watering. 
My arena was treated once a year and the last time it lasted almost three years. 
We just added new washed sand to replace the loss of footing and a couple of days of dust really made me appreciate the decision I made nine years ago.
Anyone who boards with me or rides in my arena can attest to this!
If you have a therapeutic center or a 4-H club or host any events this should be something you check out.
I have colts to start this spring and I will be adding sand to my round pen and getting it treated too.
ArenaRx sure makes a difference on ranch roping practice nights and does not harm the ropes.
ArenaRx is eco safe and the only one approved by the EPA.



Bridle Bit Training

Amy and Steve LaSatz own and operate Bridle Bit Training and provide local clinics primarily in Northern Colorado.  For few years during a transition of selling one ranch and purchased another, they operated their training out of Last Resort Equestrian Center.

Obviously, Jim and LuAnn use Arena Rx.  Amy and Steve both commented numerous time  throughout the years that it was a such a pleasure to train and to contract for clinics at Last Resort Equestrian Center where the indoor arena is maintained at an optimum  level of dust control.  With an indoor spectator space and dedicated formal food preparation area, dust is something that can not be tolerated, so Arena Rx fits that bill.   

Jim's comment:  Arena Rx changed our lives.  We use to water the arena constantly, day-after-day, year-after-and then we tried Arena Rx in 2004.  Wow, what a difference.  Haven't watered it since that first application.  As we see it, many activities around an equestrian facility must be done daily like feeding, turnouts and cleaning etc.  Some tasks are done on an as need basis like mending a fence, changing a light bulb or grading a roadway.  Before 2004, dust control by watering fit into the first category as a time consuming daily chore.   Now it is definitely in the second category.  Arena Rx does not evaporate, dry out, dilute or blow away.
