Harrogate Civil


Harrogate Equestrian Projects is run by Harrogate Civil Construction, which has over 40 years of experience nationally and abroad in civil construction. 

Harrogate Civil Construction is a company that has always formed an integral part of our own family's equestrian requirements and as such indirectly formed an association with some of the top show jumpers in South Africa. 

Equestrian arena and facility construction has progressed considerably with the research into elite horse competition development and soundness, notwithstanding, a holistic engineered design is now required to produce a surface to the standards required and built internationally. 

This process has overlapped with conventional professional civil engineering and construction respectively. The overlapping of expertise, coupled with our diverse and significant fleet of machinery, enables us to produce the varying elements of the engineered equestrian arena at a fraction of the cost and project time. 

Our Surfaces

We construct highly engineered arenas guided by the latest FEI designs and research. We have a silica synthetic fibre surface designed for optimum performance and safety in all weather conditions. 

The fibre is high grade washed natural silica. Pure fine, sub-angular grain size used throughout. No unwanted fines or clay added!


To learn more about our surfaces and how we construct them, download the FEI Surface Guidelines we adhere to below.
