I wish to confirm that John Ormonde Wexford Sand Ltd supplied materials and services for full construction of our all-weather Gallop and all-weather arena and associated works for training of race horses at Moone, Co Kildare. They were extremely efficient and carried out the work to the highest standard and their attention to detail was brilliant.  It was completed within the time-frame agreed.  Our training continued during construction and all their staff drove the machinery appropriately around the yard without upsetting our training routine. I Jessica Harrington am very satisfied with the professional services provided by John Ormonde Wexford Sand Limited throughout the project.  We will certainly be using their services  in the future for any further developments here.

John Ormonde completed full construction of an all weather gallop for us in 2016.  John and his staff were responsible for all works associated with construction from start to finish.  John and his staff carried out all the work to the exact requirements and were very conscientious and efficient.  The job was finished to the highest standard and we have no hesitation in recommending John Ormonde Wexford Sand Ltd. to anyone who may require any of the services and surfaces required for any equestrian discipline.

I have only praise for John & his team putting my 20 x 60 arena in. I had a vision of what I wanted, John saw the area, we had a few consultations of what mixture of surface that would suit best, mixture arrived one day & the next day it was down ready to be ridden on. Today almost 2 years later the surface is still as day one. It's firm but still spongy, soundless when the horse moves/jumps on it & it is joy to ride on everyday, my horses loves it. The more rain the surface gets, the better it is!
