Marking the location and size of an equestrian riding arena.

Location & Size

Choosing the right location for your riding arena is an important first step in construction. Easy access for the delivery of materials can cut your construction costs considerably. Location also helps determine how much expense and effort will be required for your drainage system. Lastly, the right location can help you preserve the surface materials of your finished arena, reducing the time and money needed for maintenance.

Surface Materials

The right surface material will go a long way in protecting the investment you are making in your riding arena construction. Budget and personal experience are often deciding factors in which material to use. The Geilers have first-hand knowledge of what is required to provide proper footing and can guide you on the right materials for your riding arena. 

Laser grading produces a precise grade to ensure a safe, comfortable riding surface and the correct slope for proper drainage.

Laser Grading

Precision is critical when grading your riding arena. For optimum results, Geiler Excavating employs laser grading technology that gives better control over the finished grade, ensuring that your design and construction specifications are met. This provides you with an ideal riding surface for the health and comfort of your horses and the proper slope needed for adequate drainage. A poorly drained arena can compromise the integrity of your surface by creating soft spots.
