The costs involved in building an indoor riding arena

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:
