Safety, Performance, & Longevity

You've invested time, money and love into your horses! Your passion for them and their care is reflected in your desire to keep them sound, provide them the training to perform to their maximum ability and partner with you for as long as possible. The TR3 E series was designed to give you just that; safety, performance, and longevity!

Safety, Performance, & Longevity

Safety

80% of all soundness problems are a direct result of poor quality arena footing. Simply grooming the top surface of an arena does not address the dangers under the surface that other arena drags leave behind. Inconsistent compaction at the base of the arena and variances in depth of the footing are major contributors to injuries resulting in lameness. The TR3 E series is the only arena drag designed to address these real footing issues and properly prepare your arena to be a safe environment for your horses!

Performance

Horses are reactionary and can negatively react to perceived dangers. When a horse is unsure of its footfall on the riding surface, the natural reaction is to tense up and not listen to the cues given from the riders seat, legs or hands. Quite often, when horses disobey the riders cues, the blame is put on the horse. When, in reality, it most often is due to arena footing that has not been properly prepared. The TR3 E series eliminates this problem by properly preparing the entire footing profile on every pass.

Longevity

Your investment in your horse is not just about time and money…it’s also about your relationship! You don’t have the luxury of buying new horses every few years. When your horses are lame or unable to compete at the next level, your choices become limited to replacement or retirement. The wisest investment you can make in the longevity of your horses is in the arena footing where you ride and train. The TR3 E series gives you the advantage of increasing your horses’ longevity to provide you with many years of love and enjoyment!

The TR3 E-Series was designed for the everyday equestrian and is built right here by American craftsmen. Designed by ABI’s world-leading arena maintenance experts, the TR3 E-Series is the only 3-point arena drag that can easily groom, properly prepare, and renovate arenas with a sub-compact or compact tractor.

5 Ground-Engaging Components

The TR3 E series has 5 points of contact with the ground! These contact points all do something different and make the TR3 E Series the most versatile and effective arena drag in the world! In order to properly prepare the entire profile of an arena, your arena drag must have more than one or two types of ground engaging components. Simply grooming out the hoof prints won’t keep your horses sound, performing to their maximum abilities or give you both the best chance for a long partnership.

Adjustable Components

The TR3 E Series has 5 footing engaging components and ALL COMPONENTS are adjustable. These adjustable components give you the control you need to properly prepare the entire profile of your footing! At ABI Equine we know that not all arena footing is the same! Variables such as materials used, moisture content, equine disciplines and hours of use per day all contribute to how to properly prepare an arena.

Positive Depth Control

Keeping your arena footing at a consistent depth is critical to the soundness and performance of your horses. When an arena footing profile is not properly prepared most arenas will get deep and shallow spots, which cause a horse to hesitate when traveling through the arena. Horses are reactionary and when unsure of their footfall, will often become tense and not respond to the riders’ cues.

The TR3 E Series frame is supported with our patented stabilizing tires, which eliminates the potential gouging of the footing engaging components and keeps your arena footing at a consistent depth.

Compact Design

The TR3 E Series rides close behind the tractor. By keeping the weight of the TR3 E Series close to the three-point hook up, it gives smaller tractors more ability to pick it up and makes it easier to use. In addition, this compact design eliminates the “sway” of traditional and longer arena drags. These longer drags are notorious for knocking out fencing, jumps and hitting walls when used by inexperienced operators.

Easy To Use & Connect

The TR3 E-Series was specifically designed for ease of use, requiring no specialized skill to operate. It also has adjustments to accommodate any natural footing types and conditions. The TR3 E-Series is Quick Hitch compatible for simple and safe tractor connecting and disconnecting. Quick Hitch sold separately.

Sub Compact and Compact Tractor

No other arena drag on the market offers more features, functions and results behind a sub compact or compact tractor. The TR3 E Series was purposefully built to provide 23+ horsepower tractors an arena drag that not only grooms an arena but properly prepares and renovates one as well!

The TR3 E-Series has up to 5 ground engaging components that groom, properly prepare, and renovate horse arenas. These adjustable components provide proven innovation that helps keep your horses sound, performing to their maximum ability and around for a long time!

Stabilizing Wheels

Find the perfect position for general grooming, preparing or renovating

The TR3 E Series frame is stabilized by our U.S. patented stabilizing wheels. Located in the center of the frame, these wheels provide positive depth control to all of the TR3 E Series components. With 3 height adjustments, its easy to find the perfect position for general grooming, preparing or renovating.

All 3-point tractor implements move in the opposite direction of the front tires of the tractor. If the front tires of the tractor go up, the 3-point goes down. This causes most 3-point implements to dig holes and cause waves in horse arenas. This problem is solved with our floatation stabilizing wheels. These wheels prevent the TR3 E Series from undulating with the tractors front tires, keeping the loosening components from going any deeper than they are set and preventing the leveling blade from digging holes. The wheels control the depth of the loosening action, create consistent level travel to eliminate wash boarding and eliminates gouging and stalling of the tractor while pushing backward by supporting the frame. Additionally, these wheels support side-to-side “dipping” while cornering. These wheels are the secret to properly preparing your arena footing.

Profile Blades

Loosen footing without creating ridges

The profile blades are a major differentiator between the TR3 E Series and its competitors. Because of this patented concept, the desire to loosen footing without creating ridges can finally be realized. Similar to a sod cutting blade the profile blades cut parallel to the arena grade. So, instead of ripping through footing with perpendicular teeth these profile blades slice through the footing in quarter inch increments and loosen the footing as deep as seven inches. Now with every single pass of the tractor the TR3 E Series will be loosing 100% of the footing! This saves an enormous amount of time on the tractor because the driver no longer has to make two or three passes over the same footing with different patterns! The profile blade cleans the base of compaction and lifts the footing material to add cushion.

Floating Drag Bar

Move footing from one part of the arena to another

Even though many competitors claim they have a leveling or grading blade, the reality is they don’t. Simply smoothing out hoof prints will never bring an arena back to grade. A tool must have the ability to move dirt from one part of the arena to another to claim it can level an arena. Many drags can smooth, few can actually level. Unlike the competition, the TR3 E Series has a ground-engaging blade capable of moving a significant amount of material if needed. Not only that, it has an industry exclusive patent that enables the TR3 E Series leveling blade to “float”, when desired, to auto level the arena. In the floating position this blade will catch high areas and drop that material into lower areas automatically. If the arena is already level it will not dig holes or create high spots. This means, in an undamaged arena, no skill is required to achieve or maintain a level grade. But the floating position isn’t the only position! The drag bar may also be locked down to act like a box blade for rough grading and spreading material. This enables the TR3 E Series to not only maintain an already level arena in great condition, but also renovate an arena filled with waves and inconsistent footing. The TR3 E Series is the only 3-point tractor tool in the world that can do all this in one tool.

Grooming Rods

Break up slight compaction

Many arena drags on the market today incorporate grooming rods into their design. The problem is, is that they count on these grooming rods as their primary loosening tool. Not with the TR3 E Series! Our grooming rods serve several very important functions.

  1. The first is to give a second loosening action after the drag bar. Anytime you pull a blade with material on it, the footing will tighten up some. So, our grooming rods are positioned behind the blade to break up the slight compaction from the blade. The primary loosening of the arena footing comes from the profile blades or ripping teeth and not our grooming rods.
  2. The second function is to add a little “texture” when wanted right about the base of the arena. In many disciplines, the horse needs a little “grip” right above the base for traction. This helps with barrel racing and jumping specifically. You simply lower the grooming rods below the profile blade and you get the best of both worlds! With the profile blades you get a consistent footing with no compaction clear down to the base and with the grooming rods you get the “grip” desired for some traction.
  3. The last purpose of these grooming rods is to relieve any final compaction from the stabilizing wheels.

These grooming rods are adjustable and can wear 6″ before needing replaced!

Ripping Teeth

Easily penetrate compacted arena footing

The ripping or scarifying teeth loosen the ground to eliminate hard spots and easily penetrate compacted arena footing. The depths of these teeth are controlled by the stabilizing wheels to protect the base of the arena. Many equine disciplines require different footing depths and every footing material is different. The TR3 E Series ripping teeth are adjustable from 0″ – 7″ to enable the perfect amount of aggressiveness and loosening depth. The TR3 E Series is not only limited to the horse arena. If fact, because the teeth are “fixed”, not spring loaded, they make breaking up hardpan soil or gravel a breeze. Many customers use the TR3 E Series on gravel driveways and for light property maintenance.

Because the ripping or scarifying teeth can handle nearly any ground condition from horse arenas to gravel driveways the TR3 E Series teeth have replaceable bolt on tips. This feature not only ensures affordable and easy maintenance, of this wear part, but it also ensures peak ground penetration no matter the ground condition. If the tips wear to the point that performance is diminished, simply replace them and restore the performance to like new! Many competitive drags require the owner to grind off the worn parts and weld on new ones.

Adjustable Finish Rake

Groom material with the perfect amount of flow

The final component of the TR3 E Series is the adjustable finish rake. This rear rake pulverizes and breaks up clumps of material and leaves a beautiful signature finish behind in the arena. By adjusting the rear manual jack, the TR3 E Series’ 1/2″ thick hardened-steel-rake, can pivot into into a variety of finishing and grading positions. This adjustability enables the rake to pulverize clods of material, level and finish no matter the material consistency. This functionality enables the TR3 E Series to beautifully groom material with the perfect amount of flow. Outside of the arena it can work on grading and resealing gravel driveways and even break-up manure lying on the pasture. The rake is replaceable in one-foot sections to reduce maintenance costs.

Rail Blade

Eliminate hours of back breaking work

The optional TR3 E-Series rail blade eliminates footing material buildup along the rail of a horse arena. This option saves hours of labor by eliminating the need to manually rake out, tractor accessible, arena edges. The breakaway shear bolt, edge wheel, and edge marker stake pocket all contribute to assist the operator with damage free operation near wood fences, walls, and rails. (Driveway Marker Stake not included, available at local hardware)

There are clear and purpose built advantages between the TR3 E Series and all other arena drags. These advantages deliver significantly better arena footing maintenance results and multi-function capabilities to manage your property.

1More Work with Less Horsepower

At the core of the Arena Rascal Pro is a welded main frame built upon 3″ x 3″ tube steel. The frame is fully welded, except at pivoting joints, for rugged and long lasting service life. Every component of the Arena Rascal Pro is truly commercial-grade to take the abuse of hours of daily use. Commercial-quality construction and design excels when other tools fail! The Arena Rascal Pro is the toughest and most versatile ATV tool on the market.

2Ease of Use

The everyday equestrian is not a professional ground prep contractor! Ease of use and “no skill required” were the foundation of the TR3 E series design. To keep your arena footing depth consistent, an arena drag MUST have a grading blade. The problem is that a fixed grading blade means you need to be a skilled operator. Not so with the floating drag bar of the TR3 E Series. The floating drag bar will catch your highs and fill in your lows without the operator having to control the three point hydraulic arms of the tractor. The floating drag bar, in conjunction with the stabilizing wheels, offsets the dangerous dipping and gouging that comes with all other three point arena drags.

3Multi-Function

The primary purpose of the TR3 E series is arena footing. But make no mistake this tractor attachment is perfect for gravel road maintenance and light pasture and seed bed work. With the ripping or scarifying teeth, floating drag bar and the profile blades, the TR3 E Series will turn your pothole filled gravel road into a brand new road in no time. If you think the TR3 E Series is an incredible arena drag, just wait until your neighbors think you’ve spent thousands of dollars on a new gravel road!

4TR3E Equine Edition Components

80% of all soundness related injuries are a result of poorly prepared arena footing. How your arena footing is prepared below the first 1″ is fundamental and critical to keeping your horse sound. With moisture in your footing, and as your horses travel throughout the arena, they compress the footing to the point where there are hard inconsistencies that you and your horse cannot see…but your horse can feel! Simply dragging a chain harrow or simply designed arena drag that’s purpose is to smooth out the hoof prints, will not prepare your footing for safety…it only covers up the issues. But the profile blades and floating drag bar on the TR3 E Series will completely eliminate any unseen compaction clear down to the base and will keep the depth of your footing the same throughout your arena.

5TR3E Equine Edition Components

Horses are reactionary animals and have a natural “flight” mentality when they sense danger. As equestrians, we ask our horses to do things that are very unnatural in the wild. If we don’t give them a footing that makes them feel safe they are most often going to tense up and not respond to the cues given by the riders seat, legs and hands. You work hard to get your horses mind in sync with your desires and direction and poorly maintained footing will break that mental bond and leave you both frustrated. With the TR3 E Series, you can eliminate that worry from your arena training. If you properly prepare your arena with the profile blades, floating drag bar, grooming rods and adjustable finish rake, you and your horses stand a much better chance of success!

6TR3E Equine Edition Components

Your investment in your horse is not just about time and money…it’s also about your relationship! You don’t have the luxury of buying new horses every few years. When your horses are lame or unable to compete at the next level, your choices become limited to replacement or retirement. The wisest investment you can make in the longevity of your horses is in the arena footing where you ride and train. The TR3 E series gives you the advantage of increasing your horses’ longevity to provide you with many years of love and enjoyment!

7TR3E Equine Edition Components

Although ABI Equine believes that it is critical to the safety and performance of your horses to properly prepare your footing, sometimes a quick and simple grooming is what’s needed. The TR3 E Series floating drag bar, grooming rods and finish rake produce a beautifully groomed arena. One of the attention to details that ABI put into the finish rake is the slightly upward concaved end pieces. This minor, but important, detail helps to leave a more beautiful finish without the deep lines that hard edge usually will leave on the footing.

8TR3E Equine Edition Components

If you believe that your arena footing plays an important role in the soundness, performance and longevity of your horses, then you have no choice but to invest in an arena drag that can prepare the entire profile of the footing and not just the first 1/2″. ABI Equine’s profile blades and floating drag bar are two of the critical components that create consistent depth and eliminate inconsistency in compaction. Because these components are patented, nobody but ABI Equine can offer them on their arena drags.

9TR3E Equine Edition Components

There is no such thing as a horse arena that never gets out of grade. It happens, and from time to time it is mandatory to get the arena back in its original condition. With most other arena drags, you would have to get out a box scraper and disk to make that happen. And, if another arena drag can renovate…it’s very difficult to use for the everyday equestrian. Not with the TR3 E Series from ABI Equine. The TR3 E Series is easy for anyone to use and yet when using the ripping or scarifying teeth and then locking the floating drag bar down, it can be turned into a powerful rough grading tool that can loosen the hardest material move yards of it anywhere needed to bring your arena back into perfect condition!

10TR3E Equine Edition Components

As horse owners, you spend a lot of your hard earned money on horses, trucks, trailers and property.

Reviews

I've used several different types of 3 pt and pull type arena drags, and none of them can hold a candle to the e series. Each component is very quick and easy to adjust, to fine tune your ground. You can produce world show quality footing at your farm. I can not say enough good about the customer service from ABI, from the sales team to the service department, reaching out to offer video links before our drag even arrived. Top notch company and products.
If I could give more than five stars I truly would. My wife and I turn Field's into workable arena area's. 99% of the ground we work is very hard. But our TR3 works like a champ. Thank you ABI.
Best of the best. This tr3e is soo much better then u though it would be. The ease of getting it off the delivery truck & in arena was about 30 min. It's amazing !! Women friendly ! And easy to work with.
Great Product - Superb Customer Service. TR3 was delivered today and WOW! With the TR3, we were able to do in 20 minutes what usually takes 2-hours and three separate attachments. I'll admit, we were a bit wary of the price, but it is worth every penny. Thank you for walking through the process with us, answering our questions, and ensuring we bought the correct sized attachment. Looking forward to future ABI purchases.
TR3 E-series is Amazing! The versatility and quality of this arena drag is amazing! Our arena feels like the best footing we have ever walked on; the horses just float! This is our 4th Abi product. We love the design, durability, and dependability of the Abi products. The Abi personnel are also top notch both in their pride in the products and their integrity. Very refreshing to do business with a company of such high standards. Thank you all and God bless!! Special thank you to our sales rep Brian
What a great design. Needed a drag for our indoor arena and this exceeds our expectations. Nate was great to deal with and will buy from them again when equipment is needed.
Great tool it's like 5 in one
Amazing equipment. We built our arena ourselves last year and bought the TR3 to help with that. We are so impressed with this amazing piece of equipment. I had hopes that it would help make the spot we chose into a reasonable arena. It has far surpassed my expectations. It looks and functions like a professional arena. IÕm completely confident riding my expensive horses in there without reservation. I consider my ABI a partner in my riding program now. Highly recommended.
Great Arena Drag. After 10 years of using various other drags/harrows we got a TR3 E series. WeÕve had it for about 2 years now and absolutely love it. My wife says after conditioning the arena itÕs like butter cream frosting. WouldnÕt be without one now that weÕve been spoiled. Works great, easy to adjust, built to last.
Great addition to farm equipment. I am very happy with my TR3E. I could not imagine life without it anymore. We purchase about 6 month ago and once we go it set up and dialed in for our footing, it's brilliant. We have 2 riding rings and high traffic use with jumping everyday. It has saved a lot of time and diesel by doing a great job on the first pass. Levels ring. No more puddles. I would recommend to anyone.
I am very pleased with my TR3 E-Series. My arena ground is so much better using this equipment. I am able to get more done with my horses by having better ground.
This drag is everything! Although for our private farm, we wanted a way to properly maintain our new large (240X180) bluestone/sand/shell mix arena. It really does the job and THEN some! One of our biggest issues with the new arena is the 50 plus year old tress that line the arena. They completely shade the arena in the summer which is invaluable to us. But in the fall, they pose a MAJOR problem. With the aid of a large Ohio leaf sweep and this TR3 we are able to put the blade down and churn what is left over in to the sand and it biodegrades. It is a lifesaver! Although maybe to big for most people, this TR3 E was JUST what our farm needed! I canÕt recomm it enough! Worth the money!
Amazing . Revitalized and repaired our tired footing we are so happy
What a great arena drag. I had a 4 in 1 reveal for 15 years and there is no comparison. I have been in the horse industry for over 45 years and the TR3 E is by far the best machine I have ever used.
First time buying. Got this 1 year used from a neighbor that passed away. Years ahead of what I was using, but was a little upset to find that ABI charged me for a replacement part that isn't supposed to break (I dont know why they should care who bought it from them...mfr warranty should apply to the machine, not who's using it). Can be a little hard to keep up with how to set it consistently..but a great job it does do.
We have had the TR3 E series for about a year. My wife rides and enjoys the sport of Dressage and is a perfectionist. I drive the tractor. I love this tool. It provides me the exact footing my wife needs and does it easily. As an aside. It is perfect to maintain our gravel driveway... In Florida. Thanks
