Any horse enthusiast can agree – investing in an all-season riding arena is a major decision. That’s why you want to choose a designer that understands the construction techniques needed to keep your horses healthy and your structure standing for generations. At DC Structures, we take pride in designing the safest and most durable wood horse arena kits on the market. With over fifteen years’ experience building equestrian facilities across the nation, we can back up our promise with a portfolio of beautiful riding arenas that our clients love. Our team of talented designers have created a line of year-round riding arenas perfect for anyone looking to launch their horse boarding business or build an equestrian estate unique to their lifestyle.

What is a Riding Arena Kit?

A horse arena kit is a pre-engineered building package made from angle-iron steel trusses and select-grade lumber sourced from our mill-direct connections in the Pacific Northwest. These highly complete packages come with all the high-quality materials you’ll need to assemble the structure once we ship it to your site, including builder-ready blueprints, posts, trusses, rafters, sheathing, doors, gates, and other structural components. Using our Flex Design process, you can easily modify the layout of any horse arena kit to meet your individual needs for the structure.



Our Commitment to Horse Safety

When it comes to designing a riding arena, our number one priority is ensuring your horses’ safety and comfort. We’ve implemented a number of safety measures in our equestrian facilities, including galvanized metal chew protection on exposed corners, custom concealed structural knife plates in stables and steel-framed doors and stall fronts to help prevent accident or injury. We partner with equestrian specialists like Classic Equine to provide you with high-quality equipment that adheres to the highest standards of health and safety for your horses while making your job less stressful. At DC Structures, you can feel secure knowing that your investment in a riding arena is also an investment in the well-being of your animals.

Our advanced project management tools make it possible for you to take control of your project from virtually anywhere so you can stay updated on your building’s progress from design to completion.


Our flexible design process allows you to customize any of our riding arena kits to better suit your lifestyle. If you’re seeking to start a horse boarding business, we can help you add a tack room, wash bay, and stables to the existing blueprint. Depending on your needs, you can also make any number of structural modifications to your horse arena kit, including adjustments to the building height, width, and roof pitch. Whatever your vision may be, our in-house design team will work with you to design a structure that best aligns with your plans for the space.


We source the finest materials from the Pacific Northwest to provide you with a structure that is not only beautiful, but built to last. All of our riding arenas feature high-quality cedar and Douglas fir siding, durable wooden posts and angle-iron steel trusses. For our barns and stables, we supply the finest framing lumber and select-grade heavy timbers. If you’re looking for something different than our standard materials packages, we offer hundreds of options and upgrades tailored to the individual needs and interests of every horse owner.


We understand that everyone has a unique vision for their dream riding arena. That’s why we give you the ability to choose from a wide selection of high-quality options geared toward the modern horse owner.

Our Riding Arena Expertise


Before launching your horse boarding business, you’ll need to choose a site that complies with state and local regulations, and select a design with all the amenities needed to run a successful operation. For instance, a full-service equestrian facility should include safely fenced paddocks and fields and spacious stalls optimized for comfort and safety. Check out these helpful suggestions from equestrian publication The Horse that detail some of the best practices in the equine business.


All of our building packages go through a process called prefabrication. This process allows for more accurate construction and better overall quality, while saving you thousands of dollars in labor and equipment costs. If you’re looking to kickstart your construction process, our streamlined building system can help you achieve a beautiful structure with maximum speed and efficiency.


We’ve teamed up with project management software Buildertrend to provide each client with 24/7 access to their project calendar and design documents. Once your package ships, we’ll be available to provide direct support to you and your builder until your structure is complete. Using in-app communication tools, you can chat with members of our team as well as your contractors and subcontractors to ensure everyone is on the same page.
