Alligo Australian made Arena fibres

(10 customer reviews)





Alligo Fibre surfaces – Manufactured right here in Australia and rivalling the best in the world for quality and performance!

High quality arena fibres become very expensive when they have the added importation costs from Europe.  Considering those same materials can be sourced right here in Australia, we have developed a surface to rival the most fashionable imported surfaces in the world! Quite a few professional riders and coaches have reported that our amazing Alligo fibre surface is actually better.  Not only will you love Alligo, your horses will also! A proven surface is key for longevity in the sport.

We prefer to support and encourage Australian made whenever possible and this opportunity has turned into a huge success! 

Sometimes the mentality can be to follow the “fashion” and “imported” must be better.  Our thorough quality control in sourcing the best new (not recycled!) materials and correct shredding process supports consistent rider feedback that this surface can match it with the best in the world.  Don’t settle for average when the best is now affordable and made right here in Dandenong Victoria.

Once your base is ready, the perfect surface starts with the perfect sand and maintenance.  There is no compromise to this goal.  This is where our expertise as the original pioneers of bringing synthetic surfaces into Australia comes in.  We know sand! Other surface suppliers will pass sand choices that we will fail.  If you want the best but don’t want to pay for expensive importation and costly overheads, this is where we can help you!  You are only paying for your surface not a significant % towards transportation, imp duty etc…  This represents smart buying and supporting Australian made at the same time. This is a win win for our customers because there is no compromise on the quality.  Ask to speak with any of our customers currently training horses at top level on this surface to find out why they are thrilled with their surface.  Knowledge is power, it also represents intelligent $$$ savings.

We have had a 100% overwhelming positive feedback from our customers all over Australian from both the dressage and jumping riders.  Some of our customers were wanting the “perfect” surface and that is how they have described our new release!

  1. Clare

    “I installed the Alligo Fibre surface in January 2018. The most important thing for me about an arena surface is the support the horse receives whilst allowing some give. This surface maintains its stability so the horse stays on top of the surface instead of sinking and having to drag itself through it. I am very happy with the surface.”

    “We are very happy with the decision we made 2 years ago to use the Alligo Fibre on our new covered 60 x 20m dressage arena. We used the sand recommended for a 7.5cm depth and added 12 bags of fibre which has proven to be a very good ratio of sand to fibre. The horses feel very secure on it in all gaits and I personally like the amount of ‘give’ it has absorbing concussion.”

    “In February 2018 we bought the Alligo stabilising fibres to add to silica sand to create a new surface for our 15m X 30m indoor riding arena.

    It has resulted in a beautiful surface to ride on, giving horses great lateral support whether they are big moving warmbloods or small ponies. They move confidently without fear of slipping, in addition to the added benefit of non-jarring comfort.

    An older arthritic horse which is regularly ridden with us has had renewed vigour and is more regular in his paces since renewing our surface. He clearly benefits from the secure, comfortable surface.

    Our arena is used for at least 8 hours per day, so being only 15m X 30m in size means that the outside track in particular is very heavily impacted by the horses. Even in this situation, at the end of the day there is little evidence of any tracking. Our arena rake only needs to be used at the end of each day, ready for the next day’s heavy use.

    I often stand while instructing in the arena for much of the day, and since the Alligo fibre has been installed, I don’t suffer from back pain anymore.

    Before purchasing the fibre, I researched the market both in Australia and overseas including products originating from the US and Europe. Alligo proved to be the most cost effective option for us. When I did order the fibre, availability was no problem and there was no delay in its supply.

    I can thoroughly recommend the Alligo Fibre surface when combined with suitable well graded sub-angular sand.”

    Hi there.

    We are absolutely loving the arena. It has settled in nicely after the last re-Harrow and pack down.
    Now it’s easily maintained with the Greystone Rake.

    Everyone who rides in it is blown away.
    I can’t recommend it enough.

    Kind regards

    I recommend Danielle Harvey from Pro Equestrian Surfaces when choosing fibre for an arena. Danielle advised me on the right fibre mix and quantity to be added to my new arena surface. She worked in with my arena builder to ensure we used the right sand as well. The ordering and delivery of the product was seamless and she found the best delivery price to my area. Pro Equestrian Surfaces also ordered and arranged for the delivery of my Greystone Eurorake which meant that I had everything ready to go when the fibre was mixed into the surface. The end result is a fantastic riding surface that I am very happy with and my horses love to work on.

    Many thanks

    “Stuart and I installed the Alligo Fibre and sand surface on our outdoor arena in October 2020. Both Stuart and myself have ridden on many different surfaces in the past and feel the Alligo fibre and sand surface to be far superior to the rest. Our horses, both young and experienced have developed more trust in their footing since installation, and we feel the Alligo Fibre combines the best both in stability and concussion absorption, while giving the horses confidence to perform at their best.
    We are excited to make the step up from our old surface, knowing we are training daily on a surface that guarantees our horses the best possibility to succeed’

    Hi Danielle,
    My wonderful new surface is in! Your installer is a gem! He is so professional and has done a great job. The washed river sand (existing) plus 2 loads of your recommended sand to top up has worked a treat. 2 rides so far and its like riding on a cloud. The euro rake is working well also.

    Thank you for all your customer service and support. I have already recommended you to my friends and will continue to recommend Pro Equestrian Surfaces. Merry Christmas!!!

    “Hi Danielle,
    I have been so very impressed with the level of care and input you have provided to us, and so far have passed on your details to two people I know who are interested in resurfacing their arenas.
    I rode on our arena for the first time on Saturday and was blown away! The stability is amazing, yet there is a softness and give to it. It’s beautiful and I can’t tell you how grateful I am.
    Thank you so much.

    Kind Regards,
    Kate Van Elmpt (Vic)”
