FOOTING BY OTTO SPORT - NOT JUST FOR SHEIKS AND KINGS
For over 25 years, the German company OTTO Sport International GmbH has been known for supplying top quality equestrian surfaces for professional and hobby riders. Whether therapeutic riding centers, private horse farms, the World Equestrian Games or Longines Global Champions Tour - they all trust in the legendary surface system consisting of OTTO-Mats and OTTO footing blends.
Just recently, the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil installed a total of 33,400 sqm of original OTTO Sport surface for the world-famous sports event. The Olympic committee as well as the FEI (Fédération Equestre International) publicly praised the surface system for its safety features and performance during the Games.
"The secret is under the sand" - a statement which is often expressed at OTTO Sport, referring to the world-famous OTTO-PerforatedMat. The mat is a patented product specifically designed for equestrian sports and which is installed between footing and sub-base.
Given its special system of high and low knobs, the Mat gives sufficient stability to the hooves. Its consistency provides perfect elasticity, which e. g. supplies the needed power for showjumping and absorbs a large part of the impact when coming down from a jump. Furthermore, the OTTO-PerforatedMat offers excellent drainage of excessive rain water while constantly storing a certain amount of water to provide the footing with the needed moisture. Whether dressage, showjumping or vaulting: Thanks to the decade-long proven OTTO Sport Equestrian Surface System, top safety and performance is ensured for every discipline.
Ever since horse enthusiast and company founder Werner Otto started experimenting with different mixtures of material in his basement, the Germany-based company has completed over 6,000 arenas worldwide. Whether in rainy parts of the world, dry deserts or freezing climates: Any arena problem such as water puddles, dusty air and frozen surfaces are things of the past, all thanks to patented OTTO Sport products like OTTO-PerforatedMats, OTTO-ArenaTex Footing or OTTO-ReiTex.
The international company, which today is directed by three OTTO family generations, do more than just supply the material: Being experienced, flexible and multilingual, the team assists its clients before, during and after equestrian events.
But despite having established themselves as one of the giants in the industry, OTTO Sport International do not like to regard themselves as a provider of luxury products. The small private arena around the corner is just as important to the OTTO family. This way, every farm in the world gets a chance to have 'a touch of Rio' in their arena. The quality supplied by OTTO Sport is always top notch.
