When constructing an all weather menage or arena there are many different key factors to consider.
Drainage : The drainage element is the most crucial part of any riding arena construction. There is no point having a expensive surface if corners have been cut with the drainage. A waterlogged surface will be is liable to freezing during the winter and unusable after a heavy downpour . If you are unsure which products best suit your requirements please contact us.
Sub-base: This layer provides the foundation of the arena as well as being an important component of the drainage system. SP Equestrian Surfaces supply a 75-40mm washed, angular aggregate. The material has a high PSV (strength) grading to allow the material to lock and compact, this creates a base with integral strength that drains freely.
Surface: The surface chosen usually comes down to what the arena will be mainly used for, how much time the owner has to maintain the surface and budget. Below are the surfaces that we can provide , however if you are unsure which products best suit your requirements please contact us.
