Dirt Dogs Excavation recently provided horse arena excavating services a large outdoor horse arena in Douglas County, Colorado. We used laser leveling technology to make it perfectly level and finished it all off with a high-end rubber footing made of recycled, crushed yoga mats. This footing material is a premium footing additive which is a rubber blend is free from potentially harmful chemicals. One advantage is that this type of footing will not freeze during the winter cold. Its high quality materials, natural rubber and an interlocking textile web provide great rigidity and a durable, long-lasting outcome. Dirt Dogs Excavating has decades of experience working working on equestrian centers and arenas throughout the front range of Colorado.
When your horses deserve the best…give Dirt Dogs a call and avoid the rest!
As a part of a larger indoor horse arena project Dirt Dogs Excavation recently built a large rock retaining wall for a ranch owner in Douglas County, Colorado. The property owner needed to have us prepare, excavate and laser level ground for a new horse area which needed to be cut into the earth to save room for a driveway and road. In order to hold back the cut in the earth we needed to move a large amount of heavy boulders which we were able to pull from his own property to form the retaining wall.
Our loader can lift about 20,000 tons at a time. A number of these boulders pushed our equipment to the limit on this job. Over 2-3 days we moved and stacked about 1000 tons of rock to create a permanent, boulder-based rock retaining wall.
Once the new indoor horse arena is complete we’ll be coming back to finish the job, laser leveling and moving in the right type of material for the footing.
By the way, when it comes to footing materials for horse arenas, we can get ANY type of horse footing materials you may need. In fact we recently had horse footing gravel brought in all the way from a special site in New York to make a perfect footing surface for a world class horse barn in Douglas County.

- Excavating and laser leveling your site
- If needed we can provide additional earth moving services on your property while we’re there – such as adding a pond or handling difficult rain and drainage issues
