At Harrison Lane we build two types of arena bases for our clients, either a free-draining base or Ebb and Flow system, followed by the chosen footing.
There are a variety of arena surface options to choose from, such as black sand, silica sand, GGT fibre and Treadlite to name a few. We work with clients to establish the right arena construction method and footing type that will best suit their location, site, performance requirements and budget.
Free draining arena base
An arena with a free draining base is constructed using a combination of subsoil drainage and hardfill designed to ensure water drains away from the arena.
Ebb and Flow arena system
The Ebb & Flow system is becoming our most popular arena types due to its ability to maintain an optimal riding surface all year round. It’s comparable to riding on the beach at low tide.
The arena surface is kept at a continuous moisture level, irrigated from underneath the arena. In Winter months water is cleared quickly from the surface after heavy rain and discharged via the balance tanks. In Summer dust is minimised as the water level is maintained consistently from underneath, preventing the footing from becoming loose and deep.
We can manage your entire arena construction project starting with putting in required access through to the final finishing touches like fencing and landscaping.
