Riding Arena General Description

With all riding arenas the surface is most important, but a good surface will be ruined if the preparation is not correct. All riding arenas should be constructed ensuring there is good drainage, typically this will be done with a layer of clean stone on top of a subsoil base.

Depending on the site, drainage may also be included and then a layer of protective membrane, followed by the topping. The topping will normally be rubber and sand, or sand and waxed fibre. (supplied by others)

The fencing and gates around the riding arena will be 1.4m out of the ground, with a top rail flush with the top of the posts, with a further two rails evenly spaced below, and finally a kick or retaining board at ground level. In exposed or windy sites we have the option of featherboard panels that offer a solid barrier to help avoid the riding arena surface blowing away.

A gate typically 3.6m wide should be installed in the fence line with a horse safe latch that allows the gate to open both ways.

Fencing Specification

The standard configuration for an arena would consist of the following:

  • 1 x fence post every 1.85m (either 170500 or 170600 depending on height)
  • 2 x containing boards at the bottom of the fence
  • 1 x optional splash board above the containing boards
  • 3 / 4 x fencing rails

When calculating materials we recommend the use of 3.6m boards and rails and allow a post every 1.85m of fence, plus one at the end of the run.

For a 3-rail fence allow three rails per 1.85m. And for a 4-rail fence also allow four rails per 1.85m. Nails: use 50mm galvanised wire nails approx 441 per kg. code 800110 1kg, 800150 5 kg, 800100 25kg. 2kgs for 180m of 3-rail fence or 3kgs for 180m of 4-rail fence
