What Our Customers Say

Working with Ballard Construction was a dream come true! They are so professional, efficient and knowledgeable! When Mother Nature had other plans, and changed our time line, Ballard stayed in constant contact and I knew once the weather cleared they would do everything they could to finish the job in a timely manner. And they did! It’s comforting to work with a company that truly has their clients best interest in mind. I would HIGHLY recommend them for any arena work. My horses health and safety are first and foremost and the footing is simply perfect!! Thank you!

SaraBeth Butler, Illinois

Ballard construction was wonderful to work with from start to finish. Their customer service was great! Our arena footing needed some revamping and our base needed quite a bit of fixing. They took the time to come see my footing multiple times to develop a plan that would be most beneficial while also being cost effective. I couldn’t be happier with the finished product! I highly recommend them!!

At Freestyling Farms, we already know who we are going to call when it comes time for our grass jumping field to be created!

Jill Gaffney, Freestyling Farms, OH

Ballard construction has an incredible attention to detail and has exceeded my expectations. I could not be more impressed with their professionalism in regards to the service, product, time frame, and communication. I’m happy to say I am proud to show off their work and couldn’t be happier with how my horses perform on it. Nothing but the best for the horses that mean so much to us at Smokey Hollow Farm!

Ballard performed laser screed of football, softball and baseball field at Montgomery County Central High School project. They arrived as scheduled and performed the work in a neat and very professional manner. Doug did a great job coordinating with other sub-contractors, his expertise in survey and lay-out were invaluable to the success of the project. Branch Builds Inc would highly recommend Ballard Sports on all future projects.

We recently completed a project with Ballard Sports. They arrived on time and completed quality work that was critical to the success of the project. We would be happy to do business with Ballard again in the future.

Just a short note to express my sincere appreciation to Ballard Sports and Footing First for the installation of the SRS footing at my new farm in Southern Pines, NC.

By installing your preblended EGT fiber and specific silica sand product, you created a spectacular riding surface that my horse and I will enjoy for years to come. Additionally, the preblended product, eliminated the time and expense of onsite blending with a local sand that may or may not have blended properly.

A special thanks to Elizabeth Ballard and the installation crew who were professional, easy to work with, and returned all of my calls. Elizabeth oversaw the entire operation from choice of footing to onsite installation, and since Elizabeth rides and competes, she is aware of what riders are looking for in an equestrian surface for horse and rider.

Thanks again to everyone at Ballard Sports and Footing First for such a positive experience in the world of equestrian arena surfaces.
