"Perry James constructed an outdoor riding arena for us in 2006. An excellent result which was achieved in a difficult position. It has been used in some of the hardest frost and after torrential rain. The surface continues to ride extremely well. A totally reliable team and I would not hesitate to recommend to anyone."

'Perry was one of four specialists that I spoke with before commissioning my 60x20 arena. From the moment that we met I had a feeling that attention to detail was as important to Perry as it was to me. I was not proved wrong.  The construction process was smooth - everything arrived according to Perry's closely managed timescale. He, and any of his team were beyond professional - always on time, friendly and approachable, extremely tidy and also very pleasant to work with. I could not recommend Perry more highly. I have a beautiful arena and also know that the ground works have been correctly installed.'

"Perry completed a 20 x 40 Manège and an acre sized lake for us this summer. There is only one comment: Brilliant in any aspect. Even with clearing up the mess after a wet summer and working in unstable ground conditions he finished leaving everything in pristine condition. We are extremely pleased with both projects and would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone."

"My thanks to you and Mrs Zellweger for kindly showing the Committee Members around your land. It was very helpful to revisit your site after the development had been completed and to reflect on the decisions. The manège has gone in very well and it was helpful for you to explain the details of the surface treatment and for us to see how well the hedge bank has grown over a relatively short period.

The wildlife pond interested us all and it was great to see the swallows diving down on the water. There has been a considerable change since I first visited and there is considerably more ecological value now than with the grazing field. It was lovely that we could walk around the site and enjoy what you appreciate every day!

Again many thanks for showing us around, a visit that we all found very beneficial."

"We recently chose to upgrade our outdoor arena to a wax track surface.  Whilst this is a not inexpensive option it does not have the same requirement for regular upgrades as is the case for the less expensive biodegradable material options.  Our experience with more economical options have been great but with the acceptance for the need to totally renew the surface every 5-6 years in addition to top up requirements in between.  The wax track offers multi use and longevity, with an obvious better quality all round result.  It is a great surface for my carriage driving schooling needs, and after a lift with the grader, the surface lightens for ridden schooling and jumping.
The service provided by Perry James is second to none, from the quality of time and research undertaken to find the right surface for our needs, to the high standard installation.   Perry always takes great pride in the service offered and undertakes an excellent standard of work.  We have used Perry's services on a number of occasions now, and the same quality is always apparent.
I would highly recommend Perry's services for construction and drainage of arenas to upgrade and renewal of surfaces.  We have had all of this work undertaken in what is a challenging location logistically.    Perry's experience, forethought and timely planning made all the difference."

"We are a small charity with limited resources and contacted Perry alongside several other companies to get a quote to put a surface into a small barn with an uneven floor.  It was not a particularly large job but it was very important for us and needed to be done fairly quickly.

Perry was extremely helpful and made time for us when some other companies gave the impression it was too small a job to matter much.  He took trouble to help us choose the right surface for our requirements and budget and gave us useful advice and then fitted us in between 2 bigger jobs to get it done quickly for us.  He did a great job, was very professional but fun to work with and best of all left everything tidy.

The surface is working well and has been excellent value for money.  We'd be happy to use him again and would recommend his services to anyone looking at putting in an arena."
