Challenges and solutions

With our client's initial brief we designed the indoor dressage arena with a curved roof to ensure the structure remained unobtrusive and tied in with the surrounding hills. The arena was made wider to accommodate other riding disciplines and our Equinarail kickrail system was integrated into the steel frame.

Partially open sides, 1m eaves, and an extended roofline over the arena entry provided the finishing touches on the timeless and unique design.
