As equestrian arena builders with years of experience, we pride ourselves on designing and constructing the most exquisite arenas for you and your horse.

We provide several different options to ensure that you receive your arena. If you would like to find out more about our construction process and the different options we have on offer, read on or If you would like to get in contact just give us a call or fill out our online contact form.


Construction of Sub-Base

We begin construction of any arena by ensuring the foundations are perfect. We remove the topsoil and vegetation of the land to expose the sub-base where your new arena is going to be constructed. The amount of topsoil and vegetation that is removed will vary depending on the quality of the land.

If you would like your arena built on a slope, we would carry out our proven “cut and fill” operation to ensure the arena has the ideal foundations.

Every Highfield Equestrian arenas come with high-quality drainage systems that are bespoke from site to site.

We lay a membrane layer which will help stabilise and separate the soil from the sub-base material. Once this membrane is down, we move onto installing a layer of clean stone topped off with a final layer of membrane.



For the base of all our arenas, we use Silica Sand which provides a firm and free draining base which is perfect for all arenas.

When it comes to the top surface, the choice is completely up to you. Choosing the best arena surface for you will depend on what discipline you practice, the volume of use that the arena will get, and also if its an indoor or outdoor arena. If you don’t know what arena surface you require, please get in contact with us where we would be happy to talk you through your options.

The selection of surfaces that you can choose from include;

  • Sicilia Sand: Top quality equestrian silica sand. Firm and Free Draining.
  • Chopped Rubber: Adds a spring to your surface. Freeze Resistant and Durable. (ideal for Jumping).
  • Complex Premixed Fibre: A Complete Surface. Superior stability.

No arena would be complete without the fencing to secure it. The fencing we install comprises of a post, three flat rails with additional two kickboards.
