There’s no single recipe for the perfect arena. When you rely solely on a contractor to design your arena and select your footing materials, you are in essence opening your checkbook to the one person who stands to make the most from your project and could possibly know the least.
When you hire a Kiser Arena Specialists consultant, they work for you; helping to find the right design and materials in the most cost effective way. From the quarry, to the lab, all the way through your first ride in your new arena; the consultant is your advocate and advisor. They’ll help formulate the proper footing blend for your needs and even ensure that your contractors know which materials to use and how to install per Kiser recommendation.
Kiser Arena Consultants take the guess-work out of arena design and replace it with peace of mind. Check out the Top 10 Mistakes of arena building in the video library!
Each material sample for footing is tested in the extensive Kiser Footing Lab located in Gainesville, TX. Kiser consultants exhaust every resource to find the best soil options in closest proximity. Finding material as locally as possible reduces the hauling cost substantially!Kiser Footing Testing analyzes potential base and top footing material for compaction, percolation, shear strength, rebound, and cushion. Most importantly, the tests are conducted in relation to your subsurface material, size and grade of your arena, as well as your budget.
Kiser Arena Consultants provide written plans including arena dimensions, installation instructions, drainage diagrams, arena grade, and soil materials and depths for your local contractor. Having the work done locally saves money and supports the local community. Your consultant is available at any time throughout the project to provide guidance, answer questions, and overcome obstacles that may come up.
An arena completed to Kiser Arena Consultant specifications can be used, advertised, or referred to as a “Kiser Arena”. Some projects may benefit from having a consultant onsite during different stages of installation, in which case additional visits can be arranged and a more in depth certification process is available.

Unfortunately there is no “cookie cutter” way to build the perfect arena. A huge number of variables play into creating a riding surface that keeps your horses sound and performing at the top of their game. Things like: how many horses, how many hours a day, what disciplines, and what kind of sands, silts, and clays are available will all impact your unique arena.
