Winning Arena Tips from the Experts

Don’t take a gamble when putting in your arena. Here’s some tips to help you make those important decisions.
TIPS AND Things to consider when choosing an arena…

Budget
Generally, arena costs are based on price per square metre, so clever design can shave the cost or allow you to use your budget more effectively. Rounding off corners for example, which you can’t ride into anyway can save up to 50sq m in a big arena.

Location
Putting an arena into a challenging location will add cost to the ground preparations, so choosing a flat, well-drained area is always best where practical. Other considerations include proximity to the yard and/or house, making use of natural shelter, access for lorries and planning restrictions.

Use
A long and narrow 20x60m arena might be ideal for a dressage rider, but the same 1,200sq m laid out as 30x40m might be better suited for a general-purpose yard using it for jumping practice or multiple pupil lessons. We can advise you on the best use of your space for the most cost effective price.

Flexibility
If all you can afford for now is 20x40m, why not you leave space to extend when finances allow?
