Get An Indoor Riding Arena?

Recommended Posts

Hi, I just introduced myself and want to tell you all about my plans:

So, me and my family are currently discussing whether to buy/build an indoor riding arena or not.

I want to use it to train my horse Penny when the weather is too cold, rainy or windy! And we are living in the UK, so there is often bad weather!

Of course I love to ride outside, but sometimes I would like to do some more training...

I'm searching for something like this (maybe not that big)

I hope you can you reasonably imagine what I mean

But I'm not sure yet to build something like that up by ourselves or by professionals. Enough space is available...

In addition another question would be how big the arena should be at least?

So what do you think? Is it worth to buy or build an arena up?

For any advices I would be very thankful.

How big your area ends up is determined by these things:

1) Local Building and Zoning Laws

2) Available Land

3) Budget/Costs

4) Use Requirements.

The metal structure in your second link is the most popular system here. Cheaper, easy to engineer to meet local codes & laws, lower maintenance costs and faster to build than wooden structures. Can be unbolted, dismantled and moved with you or sold.

A popular option is arched Clear Span Fabric arenas. With proper training and tools the smaller buildings are more of a DIY project. They are flooded with light and volume at a very good price. Here is a link: http://www.clearspan.com/fabric/structures/cat1a%3Bcs1_equine_stables_riding_arenas.html

Thank You for your answer dondie!

Some of these points I can fulfill like the available space/land.

As for the costs, they have to be clarified in the end with the seller.

On this site I found another examples of which I think I can afford because they're looking like these on your site:

Your link is a good source. The halls look also like tents as in my pics or is this always the metal structure or what kind of material is this?

I didn't really found it on the website :/

Greetings, Jenny
