Installation– (outdoor) Whether you are thinking about an arena or a round-pen, J&P can work with you to obtain the size, type and location of your new riding space. Based on your type of riding, amount of traffic and personal preferences, J&P has the ability and know-how to build the best riding surface for your specific needs. J&P specializes in quality footing utilizing locally available materials.
Indoor arena building pad construction– J&P can’t actually build your indoor arena structure, but we specialize in prepping your building site for the construction process. J&P will meet with you to discuss location ideas, drainage ideas/issues, ingress and egress of the arena along with numerous other considerations when building an indoor arena. We can design and create a site ready for construction and then come back when the building is complete to finalize all the little things such as final grading, seeding and underground gutter piping to beautify your riding space.
Repairs– (indoor and outdoor) There is nothing worse than having an arena that just doesn’t work for you and your horse. J&P offers a wide variety of options to help repair arena problems that can cause tremendous amounts of “down time” in your training regimen. Soft spots, standing water, slow drainage and washouts are all issues that J&P can resolve.
