Arena Technologies
(800) 506-8749

Arena Technologies makes great ground, providing the tools and services to get it done. The company was founded by Randy Fenimore in 2001 with the intent to meet the ground and arena footing needs of multiple competitive horse disciplines. After starting small, the company has steadily grown over the years with a focus on true quality work, customer service, professionalism, and in-depth industry expertise. As Arena Technologies has grown, so have the products and services it offers.

Arena Technologies is the home of the GroundPro arena tool – engineered for unparalleled excellence to properly maintain arena footing. Arena Technologies also provides proven, experienced ground consultation and professional ground services for your facility or event. It is with Randy’s extensive expertise and contacts in the sand and gravel business earned over the past 30 years, as well as his knowledge and background in the horse industry, that Arena Technologies has grown to become the one-stop source for all arena footing needs.

You make great horses. The GroundPro arena drag makes great ground. At Arena Technologies, the team believes your arena is the second most important detail of your performance horse operation – after your horses. With the proper footing provided by the GroundPro, your horse will experience the “cushion” that is necessary in every discipline to resist the impact of the hoof to the ground. Less impact to the horse’s musculoskeletal system substantially decreases soreness and lameness, allowing you to continue to ride and compete throughout the year with fewer chances of injury.

Bar-Bar-A Horse Drinker
(800) 451-2230

The philosophy at the Bar-Bar-A Horse is that water and electricity don’t mix. Add a horse into the equation, and you can imagine the potential for danger and problems. The reason Bar-Bar-A Horse does not need electricity for its livestock water feeders is that there is no standing water in the unit. The unit is either filling or draining. As a result there is no water left to freeze in the winter or get scalding hot in the summer. With no standing water, there is no possibility for slimy algae growth. This means that you don’t have the weekly cleaning of algae found in horse tanks and even other automatic animal waterers.

Bar-Bar-A has been successfully watering horses the easy way for over 25 years. Horses learn quickly and have ready access to fresh water. In the summertime hot water in traditional automatic waterers, tanks, or buckets limit water consumption. Decreased water consumption results in more trips to the vet and limited mental and body function. In the winter, animals have the same problem of proper water consumption with the standing water exposed to the icy, frigid air. Because the source water for our units comes from a buried water line, the temperature of the water is consistent. In the winter, the water is much warmer than standing water, and in the summer the water is much cooler. 

Whether you are in the hot high desert or the frosty mountains, Bar-Bar-A gives your horses what they need – clean, fresh water at the right temperature — and all this without algae and without electricity. Horses enjoy fresh-tasting water without all the algae that can grow in stagnant standing water. With four models to choose from, you can customize to fit your situation.

Parma Arena Groomer
(208) 722-5116

The Parma Arena Groomer tool is a great piece of equipment for complete ground preparation in one pass. The Arena Groomer tool uses time proven seed bed preparation techniques – made popular by the Parma Rollaharow – but designed exclusively for the arena. First, the ‘S’ Tines loosen compacted soil and prepare the base; front depth is controlled by the adjustable front hitch. The tines have reversible points that are also replaceable. Next, the leveling bar fills holes and smoothes humps. It is also adjustable to control the amount of dirt carried. At the rear, the pipe roller breaks and pulverizes clods. It firms and packs the base, leaving a soft, uniform surface. The roller is adjustable to control rear depth. There are a variety of sizes available: the 5’, 6’ and 7’ mini models, the 8’, 10’, and 12’ standard models, and the 8’ PRO model. Depending on the size of the Arena Groomer, they can be pulled by medium-size, 4-wheel drive vehicles, including ATV’s, or by tractors up to 60 Horsepower or more. The Parma Arena Groomer ships easily by truck in a simple bolt together package that requires just a couple of wrenches for assembly.
