VERMONT GREEN GOLD - HORSE FOOTING TEST

VERMONT GREEN GOLD - HORSE FOOTING TEST | RecycleBalls News | Scoop.it

Newly laid "Vermont Green Gold " horse footing will soon blend into this indoor arena at Hemlock Hill Farm in Shelburne, VT, and become invisible. This is the first of several planned tests in Vermont with a unique tennis ball recipe we have created. This product has the distinct advantage of being non-toxic and perfectly suited for this application. Tennis ball footing has already been successfully used in a number of arenas in MA and NY. One arena can use up to 100,000 recycled tennis balls. Stay tuned!
