Indoor riding arenas can range from small to large, depending entirely on what you are wishing to build. All our sheds are custom as we work around you and your needs to transform your dream construction into a reality. Below are some ideas according to a range of budgets of past riding arena jobs to give you an idea of what your arena could look like.
Small to medium indoor arenas
Smaller Indoor arenas cover anything up to a 30m x 21m arena. A project of this scope is guaranteed to include a roof cover and your specified size of riding arena. The cost range of this jobs extend from $10,000 to $50,000. These images below show different designs of smaller indoor arenas we have built in the past.
Medium indoor arenas
Medium sized Indoor arenas cover constructions up to 60m x 21m. These projects are usually large enough to cover a full-sized riding arena. The cost range of these indoors’ is $50,000 to $100,000. Below we show you a series of past projects that fit into this category.
Large indoor arenas
These projects are mostly combined indoor arenas and stables complexes. Such constructions can include clients such as higher end private-use arenas to industrial and public arenas. The budget for this range averages from $100,000 to $400,000.
Boneo Park and Tapcorp Park have both used us for the construction of an industrial indoor arena as shown below.
This project illustrates a private indoor arena within the larger range.
