- Item Description
Adding Lighthoof mud management panels quickly and effectively solves a challenging issue most horses and farm owners experience for more than 7 months out of the year... deep mud in paddocks, pathways, and gate areas. It's suitable for every farm, from high-end professional facilities to the modest home ranch. Mud-free... FOREVER! *Mud Costs Money – causing vet bills, maintenance, and temporary mud solutions.
Lighthoof's flexible high-density polyethylene (HDPE) panels confine the gravel footing material in a series of 3" deep interconnecting cells. This limits the displacement of gravel from the downward action of the hooves and holds the footing in place against erosive forces such as heavy rainfall from other areas. Lighthoof can be filled with any type of angular crushed rock to provide superior stabilization to the paddock footing.
DIY friendly... due to its unique flexibility, Lighthoof is by far the easiest paddock base material to install and doesn't require specialized equipment or tools. If you can't or don't want to hire someone to install your Lighthoof panels, you can roll up your sleeves, grab a rake and hammer and get ‘er done!
Instead of hard plastic tiles, Lighthoof conforms to uneven or oddly shaped areas and to sub-base grades. This allows you to work with existing terrain or to the crown or slope areas for better drainage, thus reducing the time and money spent on sub-grade preparation. There's no need to excavate or create a compacted gravel layer underneath. You can install it on steep slopes, around trees, over roots, through shallow ditches, and on lumpy ground. *Lighthoof is the only product that can install over existing muddy ground.
Gravel Filling Tips: The mix should be somewhere between 30-50% fines or screenings to 50%-70% ½” angular crushed stone. *Recommendation: A good mix is 30% #10 Screenings and 70% #8 stone.
*For local customers near the Greater Toledo Area, you can purchase the materials at Select Stone located here:

They carry the landscape fabric you will need in both 3x100 and 4x100 rolls. You will need 1-2 yards per Lighthoof panel. *Recommendation: 2+ yards so you have extra for any maintenance needed.
