How much does it cost to build an indoor riding arena?
Every job is unique, and the best way to answer this question is to get a quote.
Below we will give you estimates based on jobs we’ve done in the past and the general range of cost.
Small to medium equestrian buildings
This covers anything up to a 30m x 21m indoor riding arena. A project of this size will include a roof to cover some portion of a riding arena.
Very small projects (like horse boxes or tie up covers) cost lower, at about $5,000
Cost range: $10,000 – $50,000
Medium equestrian buildings
Medium sized projects range in size, up to 60m x 21m. This is enough to cover a full-sized riding arena.
Cost range: $50,000 – $100,000
Large Equestrian Buildings
Large scale projects included combined indoor arenas & stables complexes. These projects cover up to 77m x 46m. They range from high end private-use arenas to industrial and public arenas.
Cost range: $100,000 – $400,000
What’s the average total cost?
The average cost of an indoor built in Australia is $124,000. These are most often full-sized indoor riding arenas that are fully enclosed.
Solariums and chandeliers: A look at our most luxurious horse facility
Central Steel Build designs and constructs steel buildings. The fitting out is done separately by others.
Our buildings become a space for some of the most incredible facilities in Australia. This amazingly lavish horse arena was fitted with solariums, offices, viewing rooms and even chandeliers.
It’s a great example of what can be done if you have the time and money. For this project, the owners really decided on the best available for each option.
Let’s take a look at some of the finer details:
Wood grain panelling is the most expensive option for kickboards, but it also looks the best. The perimeter of this arena has been fitted with high quality wood and it looks great.
This is another real luxury that is certainly worth the effort. Putting a viewing room in your building that looks out onto the arena is a great idea. It’s also a good investment, and makes it easier for you to host events at your arena.
This building was full of high end facilities like solariums. They make the arena much more functional. One of the first questions that needs to be answered when building an arena is How will the arena be used? It’s all about making sure the functionality is there to meet your needs.
This is our favourite part! A lot of great design and interesting building techniques were used for this project. The building combines a traditional barn-style look with contemporary details. The use of wood and steel looks wonderful together and the light fittings and stone details add charm to the place.
This is certainly one of the most visually impressive projects we’ve built. It’s great working with a client who is so aware of how the building itself will be affected by the details and facilities that go into it. It’s a beautiful building.

Who Said It?
“Things present themselves to you, and it’s how you choose to deal with them that reveals who you are”
These were the words of Cate Blanchett, the Melbourne-born actress who played an elf in The Lord Of The Rings film series and a Russian villain in Indiana Jones.
