Solutions: Arenas & Exercise Areas

Horse owners agree, a useable exercise area is not a luxury!

Working with your soil type, topography and climate conditions is key in creating a space that can handle high traffic and be utilized all year ‘round. Learn the steps you need to take to construct an arena or exercise area that works for you and your horses in all types of weather - one that is an asset, not a liability. Exercise areas are expensive, and whether putting in a round pen or building a full size arena, getting it right the first time is well worth the effort. The reward is a healthy, fit horse and more riding or training time for you.

If you don't have enough room for an arena, a round pen can be a great place to get some training done. Make sure the size of the pen and depth of the footing will work safely for your discipline and for the health of your horses joints and tendons.

Whatever type structure you build, make sure it complies with regulations for snow load and wind speed in your area. Large structures without center support need to be engineered more carefully than other type structures.

If an arena is on your future wish-list, having a track paddock that can be used as a riding area is a great exercise option. Portable fencing can be placed inside the perimeter fencing and the area can encompass your whole property or be woven around buildings and other structures.

Planning for a permanent area for trail obstacles can keep your arena free for riding, and you from having to set up and take down equipment on a regular basis.
