Ryan Arenas


Ryan Arenas is a family run business and has been building sand arenas for many years. We custom build every arena for both commercial and private owners.

Our experience can guide you in advising the best positioning and sizing of the arena within the available land.

We cover the whole of the UK and all our work is guaranteed.

As groundwork specialists we also build concrete slabs for stables, all the drainage and temporary roads and driveways.

Most would agree that the ideal riding surface is good quality turf. Turf exhibits good drainage qualities (otherwise the grass would not grow on it), it is resilient, it gives a good firm footing, it has a fibrous root structure which binds it together, and it is self regenerating. The average horse already knows all of this, having evolved over millennia on grasslands across the globe, and if an arena surface is poorly constructed, with an inconsistent riding surface, then the horse will automatically try to aim for the best bits, to the frustration of the rider.

Since turf regeneration is relatively slow, the aim is to emulate its properties, but with more durable materials.
