Question Chad gravel?

So my horse's paddock is really muddy and we put a few loads of creek gravel down to form a path from the gate to his barn (which is open to his paddock). My Aunt told me her barn uses something called shaved chad and I asked the gravel delivery man about it and he said it's a waste of money because it will just get covered in mud. My horse isn't shod and I'm afraid him walking along the path in his paddock will not be good for his hoofs because there are some larger rocks. We tried to pick most out and are still working at it as more surface. My question is, anyone out there know if this stuff would be worth it? I would like to put a load on top of the creek gravel base so it's softer for his hoofs but not if it will just get mixed in with mud and have to be replaced constantly. Thanks.

I've never heard of shaved chad, but a thick layer of rock dust might work for what you want. It would fill in the gaps between the gravel and smooth out the path. We've used it around our gates and water troughs because it keeps things from getting muddy.
