Riding Arena Construction

Welcome to our groundworks and horse arena construction company! Whether you’re a professional equestrian or a passionate horse enthusiast, creating a top-notch horse arena is essential for maximising the potential of your equine activities. 

As a pony or horse owner and rider you will need your arena to be constructed to the highest standards by professionals. This is for two main reasons. The first is for the safety, when using the menage, for your and your horse. There are companies that cut corners, do not use the correct materials and the correct quantities. This can cause to an unstable surface and result in injury to you or your horse.  The second reason is for the construction of the arena below the surface. If the groundworks and drainage are not substantial then your arena will flood and will not last.

Ben and the team at BMD Groundworks and Arenas are known for their quality equestrian installations. If you are looking for a new arena, an arena refurbishment, stables, barns, concrete pads or any other related arena and groundwork we can provide a free quote.
