An arena groomer is a tool for grooming equestrian fields, arenas and horse tracks. Because of practice events, shows, races and weather conditions, equestrian arenas require grooming to smooth the soil and provide better footing for horses. This ensures safety for the animals and riders alike.
There are various designs and sizes for arena groomers. Some groomers work specifically on dirt environments, while others work with both natural and synthetic footings. Many groomers have the ability to add fill or soil during the grooming process to replenish lost footing material. Arena groomers are pulled behind a tractor or all-terrain vehicle normally, but early arena groomers were pulled by horse.
