Dirt Dogs Excavating are experts in indoor and outdoor horse arena construction. We utilize advanced laser leveling technology to create perfectly flat riding surfaces that also work with a wide variety of materials to provide maximum comfort for your horses.
The Initial Process
The proper construction of a riding arena is not as simple as it might seem.
The process begins with the preliminary earthwork; removal of the grass and other ground cover off the arena site; excavation of the ground to the necessary levels; and drainage around the site as required.
The Horse Arena Base
Building the arena base is the next step in the construction process. Crushed rock of various sizes is distributed over the site, compacted and laser leveled. The material used is determined by soil conditions and the client’s riding specifications.
The Riding Surface
The critical last step is the actual riding surface. It is constructed of a single material or a blend of materials, based on the client’s specifications. These materials consisting of sand, rubber, or other specialty products are then laser leveled to the required depth.
And finally, the finish earthwork is completed and any required fencing installed.
Whether your horse arena, barn or equestrian facility is large or small we have the excavation experience to get the job done right!
