It cannot be said that every horseman is concerned about professional arena construction. Take for example, the casual trail rider or the endurance rider-their arenas are either out on the open trail or over hundreds of miles of rough terrain.
However, there is a wide range of competitive equestrian events held throughout the US and around the world where athletes and their equine partners both train and compete in outdoor, covered, and indoor arenas. These horseman, along with horse owners, trainers and handlers are always concerned about the equestrian arena construction and footing.
These athletes are members of various organizations that sponsor year-round competitions. These member-driven organizations need to hold their events in venues that offer top equestrian arenas. The United States Equestrian Federation which organizes horse shows for athletes who want to compete at olympic-levels, need premium arenas.
