Founded in 2006 by father/son duo, Jack & Michael Pollard, FutureTrack was created with the intent of improving equine arena footing across North America. Michael was a short list member of the US Olympic Team in 2012. Competing for the U.S. at the 2011 Pan American Games held in Guadalajara, Mexico, Michael was a member of the U.S Gold medal winning team. Michael is still involved with the Equine Community and lends his advice in the construction of arenas whenever Jack may need it.
FutureTrack fiber footing is a 100% white Nylon product. Jack & Michael experimented with numerous polymers that included polyester, polypropylene, and a blend of all types of different fibers. Ultimately, they decided on Nylon as the product of choice for their footing. Nylon is the most absorbent and UV tolerant. This combination enhances the arena surface stability, thus helping reduce the risk of equine injury while creating a comfortable and flexible surface for the horse. The integration of the carpet fiber into the sand also creates a quiet surface to ride on, improves water retention and reduces dust.
How is carpet fiber better than rubber? Rubber has a tendency to float and is very difficult to blend and keep blending. Rubber does not retain moisture, consequently, it also breaks down and turns into black dust. The white nylon fibers blended with the white arena sand retains the moisture applied, does not break down and present a beautiful white surface for many years to come.
FutureTrack has become the fiber of choice in North America for riders and facilities such as:
Washington International Horse Show

Sharon White and Last Frontier Farm
Grand Prix Dressage Rider Karen Lips
Michelle Gibson the 1996 Olympian
Virginia Horse Park
