We are often asked what is the cost to build an indoor arena? It’s kind of like asking how long is a piece of string; the answer is invariably “it depends”.
While there isn’t an easy answer, we can give you a pretty good idea of what a typical indoor riding arena costs. Below is an outline of the main components of an indoor arena and what you can expect to pay:
Costs for a standard 61 metre by 21 metre indoor riding/dressage horse arena
Indoor Arena Building Permits Cost $2,000 – $3,500
The cost of attaining building permits depends on the overall scale and cost of the project.
Indoor Arena Building Foundations Cost $4,500 – $6,500
Laying foundations for your indoor arena. Cost will vary somewhat depending on the conditions on site.
Indoor Arena Kit Cost $80,000 – $150,000
Engineering and delivery of your complete covered indoor arena frame and cladding. Price varies depending on whether there are closed walls, zinc/colorbond cladding, ventilation, natural light, and other architecture and design requirements.
Indoor Arena Construction Cost $22,000 – $40,000
Construction and installation of your indoor arena. Price varies depending on your location. Central Steel Build is centrally located in Kyneton, servicing all of Victoria. Locations that are closer to Kyneton can be cheaper to install and sites that are particularly difficult to access can be more expensive.
Indoor Riding Arena Kick Rail System Cost $18,000 – $20,000
Supply and installation of a safe kickrail system on site. Minor variations in cost depending on the options selected for your kickrail.
