We have recently had the pleasure of working with gold medal grand prix dressage rider Lorna Joergensen. She asked us to build her a fully featured 15 stall horse stable, barn, and dressage arena complex.
Lorna was really happy with our end-to-end design, construction, and management of the project. Her new equestrian complex is now finished and we recently handed over the keys.
It’s a really impressive complex. When we get a chance to go back again, we’ll take some better photos and post them here.
