The Horse paddock grid from Leiyuan Industrial Company acts as a mechanical separation layer between the drainage rock and the footing. Using horse footing grid can create an aquifer underneath the riding surface so that rainwater percolates through the horse floor footing and the grid. This water is held in the gravel sub base permitting absorption by the natural soils to occur or having time to run off slowly.
