Footing Seminar Services


Recognizing the need to improve the quality of arena footing at major equine facilities nationwide, the League of Agricultural and Equestrian Centers hosts two footing academies a year. Private training for equipment and ground management are also available.

Arena footing is crucial to the success of all equestrian and competition venues. The League of Agricultural and Equine Centers presents a bi-annual “Footing Academy” in partnership with Kiser Arena Specialists. The academy provides an overview of considerations for arena footing design and maintenance with more advanced opportunities for equipment operators.

Equine footing design and management are multi-generational passions for the Kiser family. Bob Kiser is in the NRHA Hall of Fame for his significant contribution to making reining footing what it is today. He is also world renowned as “the” footing expert, building and consulting on private arenas, competitive arenas, and show footing including the World Equestrian Games in Spain, Germany, and Lexington, KY.

The apple doesn’t fall from the tree as Jim Kiser spends the majority of the year traveling nationwide consulting on arena footing solutions and managing competition footing at some of the nation’s largest events. Check out competition footing management!
