Choosing to invest in a covered riding arena is a major decision. That’s why it’s important to partner with a designer that understands the construction techniques needed to build a safe and comfortable riding arena for you and your horses. At DC Structures, we take pride in designing the safest and most durable covered riding arena kits on the market. With over fifteen years of experience in designing equestrian facilities nationwide, we offer the expertise and skill necessary to deliver an exceptional riding arena that perfectly suits your needs.

What is a Riding Arena Kit?

A horse arena kit is a pre-engineered building package made from angle-iron steel trusses and premium quality framing lumber sourced from the Pacific Northwest. These highly complete packages come with everything you need to assemble your frame once shipped to your site, including builder-ready blueprints, prefabricated framing components, doors, connection hardware, and much more. With our flexible design capabilities, 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. That’s why 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, 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 Riding Arena Expertise


Before launching your horse boarding business, you’ll need to choose a site that complies with state and local regulations, and create 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 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.


Our virtual project management platform is designed to provide clients with 24/7 access to their project details, including design plans, renderings, warranty information, and more. From the time you partner with us to move-in day, you’ll be able to track the progress of your project easily using our cloud-based technology. With in-app communication tools, you can also chat instantly with our team and your contractors to ensure everyone is on the same page.
