Prefabricated Steel Buildings for Riding Arenas

Prefabricated steel buildings can be just as beneficial to humans as they are to animals, especially horses. There are a couple of ways that horse owners and equestrian riders can utilize prefabricated steel buildings. They are often used as riding arenas for horseback riding and training exercises. They also work as barns to keep animals safe and comfortable while indoors.

We provide you with everything you need to construct a steel building for your riding arena or barn. Not only can we provide prefabricated steel structures, but our services also guide you through every step of the planning and design process.

Cost of Prefabricated Steel Buildings for Riding Arenas 

Whether you’re building a riding arena for equestrian use or you’re constructing a barn to keep your animals safe, prefabricated steel buildings provide a safe and sturdy structure with cost efficiency in mind.

Prefabricated steel buildings are often a less expensive option when compared to other materials. The lightweight metal requires less labor and construction costs. 

Your first question will likely be, “How much will this cost?” There are several factors that have to be considered, including:

  • Size — The larger the building is, the more steel that you’ll need, which can add to the cost. Riding arenas require ample space for both the equestrian activities as well as the spectators. Barns also tend to be sizable to ensure that the animals have the space they need to be comfortable.
  • Location — When you’re planning a structure that will house animals, the weather in your area is an important contributor to the total cost. If you’re in an area that gets rough weather, it’s important that you have sturdier materials for an increased cost to keep them safe.
  • Purpose — The use of the structure will affect the price depending on the additional features it may include. For example, a riding arena will often include features such as large sliding doors for access to the stables, which will impact the cost. 

During the design process, we’ll help you look at every contributing factor so you know what cost to expect. We consider every aspect and work to help increase your cost savings by reducing weight and load considerations if possible. We can provide you with a free quote to start.

Determining Your Clearance Requirements

Since you’ll be dealing with animals in an enclosed area, it’s important to have an unobstructed interior clearance for what activities will be taking place, especially if you’re adding storage areas that might be stacked high. The clearance requirements will help us figure out the proper load distribution throughout the structure to ensure safety and stability.

We’ll take a look at what you plan to do with the space and decide how the structural elements will work together to safely accomplish them. This means reaching an interior clearance without going over a maximum exterior ridge height.

Aesthetics of Prefabricated Recreation Steel Buildings

Your steel buildings should look just as lively as the animals that are inside. There are many different ways that you can make your steel building aesthetically pleasing, such as adding brick, glass or stone. 

The aesthetics of the building must be discussed early in the design process so that we can ensure that the structure can properly handle the additional weight and pressure for the attachment and safe load considerations.

Wall and Roof Panel Options

Durability and sustainability are essential for any building, especially those that are meant to protect animals from potentially dangerous elements outside. We have wall and roof panels that can provide a sturdy structure while being resilient against rough weather.

We offer a variety of different colors and panel finishes, such as embossed or textured. You can even choose insulated panels, to keep both people and animals comfortable as they move around without getting too cold or overheating.

Accessory Options

A steel building can be more than just a roof with walls. There are many accessories that can increase the function and safety of your riding arena or barn. Common accessories that you can consider adding into your project include:

  • Windows.
  • Electric-powered doors.
  • Mezzanines.
  • Ventilation.
  • Insulation.

Accessories are also discussed during the planning process to ensure that they’re incorporated into your building’s load consideration. 

Customizing the Project for Your Needs 

Prefabricated steel buildings provide design flexibility while still having materials that are energy efficient, durable and low maintenance. The customizable capabilities of our steel building products can provide you with exactly what you need for your riding arena.
