Todd Cunningham

Lifestyle

Equestrian Land Developments Pty Ltd (ELD) was established in 2000 for the sole purpose of bringing quality arena design and construction to the working horse person. Todd Cunningham, founder and director of ELD, has spent most of his life around horses.

Todd’s father was a Master Farrier, and he grew up on a horse property with spelling stables accommodating up to 120 horses at any one time. On leaving the farm, Todd pursued a career in earthmoving. Today, with almost 30 years of earthmoving experience, Todd has supervised a wide spectrum of construction projects both in Australia and overseas. These include some of the largest and most complex earthworks projects in South East Queensland, underwater excavation in the Torres Straight and Road Construction worldwide. After a family friend asked Todd to build an Arena for them, through word of mouth, the business grew and for 20 years Todd has built on average one arena per week. CONSTRUCTION ELD caters specifically for equestrian needs, bringing intricate knowledge and years of experience from both the earthworks and equestrian fields to each project. Our goal at ELD is to provide affordable and durable equestrian facilities for those who have a passion for horses. These include but are not limited to: Dressage arenas, Jumping Arenas, Western Arenas, Competition Arenas, Round Yards & Walker Pads, Polo fields, Stable pads,Land levelling, Dams, Fencing and driveways, Sheds, Stables & Arena Covers.¬† ¬†REBUILD/RESTORATION – In addition, ELD provides a restoration service for existing arenas. This can include partial or complete reconstruction, resurfacing and/or improved drainage systems.
