'Riata' is a blend of superior seeded bermudagrasses specially formulated for close grazing livestock or heavily grazed paddocks.  Both varieties have superior proven winter hardiness to as far north as Kansas City, Missouri and both greenup in the spring earlier than any other seeded forage bermudagrasses.  Individually, 'Riviera' is a high performance turf-type bermudagrass with extremely high shoot density, fine leaf texture, and excellent wear recovery.  'Riviera' is used in many professional and college sportsturf applications, proving its ability to withstand rigorous traffic wear.  'Riviera' can be mowed to 3/8 inch and continues to thrive. 'Wrangler' is a medium-textured bermudagrass, which grows taller and has a wider leaf blade.  Together these varieties offer the best package for the equine professional when it comes to maximizing forage production and grazing tolerance.  For the transition zone there is not a better performing forage to withstand the rigors of intensive and close grazing horses, especially in small paddocks where extreme traffic is an issue.
