A 108' x 120' Horse Arena Complex (building completed Dec 2006, six pictures taken Jan 2010)

Comments from Owner:

Features that were designed into the plan that have been proven to be effective:
  • Barn built on the highest ground to prevent flooding.  So many people build in a run-off or low ground, then have problems with flooding.  Barn is dry in all storms.
  • Stalls facing south with doors out to the runs.  During heavy storms the doors can be closed keeping everything dry and then opened for the sun.  All the storms with wind come from the Southwest here in the Northwest [United States]. If its an East wind, it is dry and if its from the North, it is snow.
  • Gravel screens and some sand work well for arena footing.
