Equestrian Arena Services

Whether you want to build a riding arena from scratch, upgrade an existing arena surface or need a more specific issue addressed:

We'll help you make it happen.

New Construction

Build a new riding arena from the ground up.

We offer full-service arena construction and specialize in producing superior all-weather systems and surfaces. While we do offer traditional compacted base construction, we are best known for our signature vertical draining base system, which allows the riding surface to be completely level, combined with superior drainage capabilities.

Arena Renovation

Upgrade an underperforming arena.

We can bring your riding arena back to life by correcting existing issues to enhance performance and drainage. If your arena is in need of renovation, we offer services from base repair and correction, to a complete reconstruction if needed, to get your arena back in top condition.

Footing Installation

Custom arena surfaces for your individual goals.

With a deep understanding of the affects of arena surfaces on equine biomechanics, we can formulate a custom footing blend that will best suit your needs. We work together with top suppliers of sand, synthetic footing, and arena base mats to produce the best outcome for your performance and budget requirements.

We love a challenge.

So we want to hear any ideas you’ve got on your mind.

Step 1.

Consultation and Design

Share your goals.

We’ll set up a phone consult with you and our expert builder, Austin Wood. He’ll ask you lots of questions to better understand your vision, goals for the arena, budget and timeline. He may also request specific images and videos of the arena or proposed site, to get a better visual perspective of the location and surrounding ground.

Arena site review.

After receiving the images and video of the arena or proposed site, combined with the information from your consult, Austin will have all he needs to develop a realistic proposal that covers it all.

Get a straightforward proposal.

With Diamond W, there will be no surprises when it comes to your estimate. You’ll get all the information you need up front so you’ll know exactly what to expect for each phase of the project.

Step 2.

The build process

Meet your team.

Our team of exceptional craftsmen take great pride in moving projects from “before” to “after.” We’ll introduce you to your professional, clean, and friendly crew who will remain diligently on your job from start to finish.

Get regular updates.

We’ve brought riding arena transformations to life for hundreds of equestrians across the United States, so we know how important it is to be proactive about communication. We’ll keep you up-to-date on your project at every turn.

Watch your arena come to life.

We love to exceed your expectations with our durably constructed and thoughtfully crafted equestrian arenas. And, we make it our personal mission to finish projects on-time and on-budget.

Step 3.

Keep your arena polished

Maintenance tutorial.

To enjoy your beautiful, new arena for years to come. We’ll demonstrate and share our best maintenance tips so your ring can look and feel as good as it did on the first day, every day, season after season.

Professional reconditioning.

Even with the most diligent day-to-day maintenance, over the years, arena surface properties gradually change and sand gets moved around by horses’ feet. Having your arena professionally regraded and reconditioned periodically is a great way to keep your surface absolutely uniform and performing at its best.

FAQ

On average we’re booked 6 months out. There is sometimes a possibility to work a project into our schedule on shorter notice, but for the best chance of meeting your ideal timeline, the further ahead you can plan the better.

Typical builds take 2-3 weeks weather permitting.

You will need to be present at the initial walkthrough as well as several key milestones during the project, including the final walkthrough. We encourage an open dialogue throughout the installation. Following the completion of the arena, we find in-person attendance to our maintenance tutorial will best ensure you’re set up for success. 

A Diamond W Signature arena comes with a one-year-guarantee on all aspects of the construction and arena surface, provided that maintenance best practices are being followed and correct tools are being used.

In a Diamond W Signature Arena, the geotextile membrane is secured to the arena kickboards. As such, the arena’s base will not migrate up through the footing. Our signature design allows for 100% vertical drainage, which means there is zero slant to the arena surface. As a result, there is no lateral displacement of the footing materials whatsoever. In other arena designs, displacement can result in shallow spots in the arena, which, in turn, can expose the base membrane to damage.

Moisture management and having the correct groomer are the two most important aspects of regular arena care. Diamond W provides a hands-on tutorial following the completion of your arena to ensure your equipment is set up correctly and to advise you on the best maintenance techniques.
This depends on several factors including the design of the arena base, traffic levels, the standard of regular maintenance performed, and local weather conditions. High traffic competition arenas might need regrading and conditioning twice per year, whereas a private arena may only require it once a year or less.
We always recommend picking up droppings to keep your training area and air quality clean. As manure ages and dries up, it breaks down and eventually turns into dust particles in the air.
A groomer designed for synthetic surfaces is a very worthwhile investment to get the most out of your arena and to prevent unnecessary wear and tear from an overly aggressive drag.
Absolutely! We would expect to be your first call if you have any questions or concerns regarding the health and performance of your Diamond W installed arena.
