Building an indoor arena requires specialist equine experience and specific knowledge of the horse industry.
Central Steel Build follows a robust construction process that is proven to deliver premium results, every time.
To start off sit down with our equestrian industry specialists so we can fully discover what you have in mind for your indoor riding/dressage horse arena.
We want to know what you imagine, what you need, and what will work best for you. We also start to form a picture of how how we can bring it all together.
2. Site Survey / Inspection
Next we provide a free on-site inspection and survey to assess the suitability of your chosen indoor arena site and to identify any aspects that may become an issue later on, such as site access, drainage, etc.
3. Design & Planning
Our team of qualified arena designers and engineers go to work to design the indoor arena of your dreams. Regular communication during the design and planning phase ensures that the arena blows away your expectations.
4. Building Permits & Approvals
For rurally located indoor arenas we offer the additional service of looking after your building permit as a registered builder. Talk to us to see whether we can look after your building permit for you.
Next the finer details of each individual component of the arena are finalised, drawn up, and sent off to be laser cut for fast and accurate manufacturing.
Your indoor horse arena hits the factory as our welders set to work manufacturing trusses / columns / etc. Our team is extremely proud of the workshop: visit any time of day and you’ll find everything clean, neat and orderly, and safe.
Teamwork is key when your indoor arena is transported and ready for installation on-site. Our installation teams have been doing this for years, and work closely together to ensure your arena is erected quickly, safely and properly.

Indoor Arena Etiquette
Quick note: People ride because they love it. Intentions are always good, so try to be kind and understanding if errors are made.
Always wear a helmet
Even if you aren’t riding. If you step into the arena, you need to have a helmet on.
Mount outside the arena or in the very middle
Otherwise, you risk getting in everyone’s way – which is dangerous. This is the same for making adjustments to your stirrups etc.
Ride in the direction of the other horses
Don’t ride against the flow, it will make things more difficult for everyone.
Close the gate behind you
Don’t leave any gaps open through which horses could escape.
Let faster horses/riders travel on the outside of the track
Fast outside, slower inside. This helps things flow best.
Don’t leave horses unattended
Sharing an indoor requires everyone to be aware and cautious of their horses at all times.
Announce your intentions
If you’re about to pass someone from behind, say ‘passing on your left’. Do this for all actions that it would benefit others to know.
Maintain a horse length from the horse in front of you
This allows everyone time to react to anything unplanned.
Don’t talk over the rail
Doing this will put you in the way of other horses and riders. If you need to talk to your trainer, make sure you’re out of others’ path.
No dogs on the arena
This could spook other horses. Dogs can also get in the way of riders.
Give your commands quietly
Don’t shout or yell when commanding your horse. This makes the arena more difficult for everyone to enjoy.
Clean up afterwards
Make sure that any mess you’ve made is cleaned up when your session is over.
Warm of any loud noises
If you’re going to do something you know will cause a loud noise, let others know. A loud sliding door could spook other horses.
