Arena dust control and improved arena footing conditions are easy with Kifco water-reel traveling sprinklers sold and serviced by Smith Irrigation Equipment. Added moisture is still the safest and easiest way to control fugitive dust, while providing the best footing and traction possible. Our traveling arena sprinklers apply uniform moisture to your arena and shut off automatically when the sprinkler arrives back at the reel. Travel speed is adjustable to control run time and depth of water applied. Only the sprinkler crosses the arena. Small booster pumps can increase pressure where needed. Reel sprinklers control dust on reining arenas, roping arenas, team penning arenas, rodeo arenas, riding arenas, dressage arenas, as well as dust control and footing improvement for barrel racing arenas and courses and anywhere equine sports arenas need dust control and safe footing.
Applying chemicals is expensive, requires repeat applications, and may deteriorate footing and traction conditions. Only time will tell if the chemicals used are actually safe for horse and rider and do not present more of a health hazard than the dust they control.
A single investment in a traveling sprinkler can solve your arena dust problems for good. The electric model can operate from a common garden hose hydrant. We have a size to fit your arena and they work on pasture too!

A WORD OF CAUTION ABOUT DUST CONTROL. WHILE MORE AND MORE PRODUCTS ARE BECOMING AVAILABLE TO COPE WITH THIS PROBLEM, SOME OF THEM CAN ACTUALLY MAKE YOUR SURFACE MATERIAL COMPACT AND LOSE ITS SPRING SOONER. "THE BEST PRODUCT FOR CONTROLLING DUST IS STILL WATER." MAINTAINING A MOISTURE CONTENT OF 8-12% CAN KEEP DUST TO A MINIMUM, KEEP YOUR FOOTING SPRINGY, AND KEEP GOOD TRACTION.
