We would never want you to just take our word for it, here is what our Clients are Saying:
"I will refer Southern Classic Arenas to anybody! What was critical about my arena was it had to be 'laser-graded" with 100% accuracy to handle our jumping discipline. The mix of sand and rubber had to be exact, as too much sand would cause injury, and too little would cause concussion. My horse, Tyrone, has had tender legs when landing; but with my new arena he has become very lively again. We love it!"

"I love our new arena. We are thrilled with it. Southern Classic Arenas went the 'extra mile' to get everything accomplished we desired to be done, even work beyond the arena itself. It's great! We would recommend you to anyone."

"What we like about your company is your reliability. You did what you said you were going to do. Your accuracy and experience you brought to the job saved us a lot of money. Using Georgia clay for the base and M-10's for the topping worked great. Your operators were professional, good stand-up type of people that did a good job. Your flexibility to design out ahead of time what would be best for our project worked very well. You were all very easy to work with. Be glad to recommend you to others. Our 150' x 300' Polo Field has received rave reviews by our Polo enthusiasts."

"I love my arena dearly. I wouldn't trade it for the world! It was worth the investment we made in it. Truly awesome! It has held up wonderfully, even during torrential rains. It drains well. Guests remark how beautiful it is in appearance, absolutely phenomenal!"
"We have been extremely pleased with our two professionally built arenas by Southern Classic. We truly love them. When it rains, within one day the water has disappeared and we are back to using our arena again. It is truly an 'all-weather arena'. We accommodate 24 horses in hunter-jumper and dressage disciplines. Southern Classic also prepared our barn pad and cleared trees for our pasture. We highly recommend their services."

"Southern Classic Arenas builds the best constructed arenas in this area. Our arena looks beautiful and has held up very well. It drains very quickly due to the crowning techniques employed when built. We are back riding shortly after a rain, whereas neighboring farms have to wait longer for theirs to dry. We have highly recommended Southern Classic to our friends who ride!"
"We love our ring! Everyone who comes to use it describe it as 'beautiful'. Whenever it rains, we are able to get right back on it shortly afterward. We have 27 horses doing dressage and hunter-jumping. It is so superior to other arenas in the area that our clients love to ride on it for days at a time."
