From Horsetrader sales staff - October 2nd, 2014

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.
