Horse Arenas

Custom made horse arenas based around Pukekohe, Auckland & Waikato


  • We offer the full service from the design of your arena through to build. We can create a horse arena suitable for which ever discipline you choose to ride in whether for jumping, dressage or just an area to ride. You will enjoy getting out of the mud in winter and increase performance by avoiding hard ground in the summer.
  • We can construct arenas as large or as small as you require, each arena will be unique to suit the requirements of your property. Herringbone drainage can be installed where sites are particularly wet or we can increase the fall to assist with water shedding.
  • We can use any arena surface as preferred by you the client, currently we are using a variety of sands, what ever surface you would like we can deliver

Dairy Flat Arena

The McLeod family have been on this property for a number of years and love the location and view. Unfortunately, it wasn’t overly designed for riding being on the steeper side contour wise. After looking around for other properties they decided to investigate adding an arena.

As you can see, the result is quite transformative, Susie & her daughter, keen show jumpers are loving being able to ride on the 60m x 30m arena. Susie also uses the arena to train and ride the beautiful ponies from her Lochnagar Highland Pony Stud. The boys of the family have been spotted doing Easter egg races down the bank and the crazy cats & dog think it is a pretty good place to hang too!

Site Land Development have really enjoyed working with these clients and know that they will enjoy their fully functioning equestrian property for many more years to come.

Client Testimonial

"We were looking for an experienced arena builder who knew what they were doing and could manage the whole process. We wanted someone who had vision and could create an arena that would be both functional and aesthetically pleasing on a tricky site. Site Land Development were experts from start to finish, delivering the project both on time and within budget." S.McLeod

Pintala Pinto Horse Stud

We do more than arenas, we have done all the earthworks on this fabulous equestrian property, including driveways, house & shed sites and all the stuff you can't see like drainage under yards and paddocks to keep them functional in winter

No horse will escape from this lunging arena:)

The Cale family with three riding members of Lisa, Gemma & Sara are enjoying their new 50m x 30m arena in Glenbrook.

"We are loving being able to get the horses fit, without having to ride in the hard paddocks" says Lisa. They enjoy all spheres of equestrian competition and the arena has made preparation for shows so much easier.
