Building a dressage arena

Before building a dressage arena, the following elements should be considered:
  • Ground surface
If you are going to do dressage, show jumping or similar disciplines, it is important that the ground is completely flat.
  • Weather conditions in the area
This will need to be taken into account especially with regard to drainage and irrigation.
  • Location within the equestrian facility
The location should be designed from the beginning of the overall design. Ideally, it should be in a completely isolated location for better maintenance.

Main structures of a riding arena

  • Base. It is where the drainage will go, which will prevent puddles, soft spots, sinking. That is why it is important to lay a good modular floor.
  • Top layer. This is usually the most worrying part as the base is the essential part. The top layer is easy to change if you are not satisfied with the one you have laid.
  • Irrigation. This can be sprinklers, hoses or even underground irrigation, which ensures that dust is not stirred up, but at the same time makes the soil easy to rake or tamp.
  • Security structures. For example, suitable entrance gates and boot guards. Entrance gates should be as high as the perimeter, very wide and open outwards to prevent accidents to the horses in the arena when opened.
