RIDING ARENAS

Rural
Riding Arenas

Whether you’re after a partial or fully enclosed horse riding arena, we know that you will have specific needs.

We know that the arena must be designed according to need, whether you’re just training or preparing for a professional competition, into dressage or jumping – the minimum size requirements and other build factors will change. The horse’s ability may also be a factor, if you’re looking for a round yard for starting horses or a space that’s more adaptable because space is limited. That’s where we come in.

Our riding arenas are also designed knowing that they may be part of a larger structure – see our horse stables as an example. Lean-tos can create a stable to the side, horse wash bays or a viewing area. The choice is yours. You can also select a range of quality inclusions where and when you need them – ZAM® steel for high corrosion resistance in ‘wet’ areas, the full range of Champion® stable doors, COLORBOND® steel for durability and other options.

Let’s take a look at what you need.
