Missouri Covered Riding Arena

Columbia, MO7,246 Sq. Ft.

Project Summary:

Based on our Prairie Arena Kit, this covered riding arena in Columbia, Missouri, features a wide-open layout perfect for year-round riding. We modified several elements of this design to accommodate our client’s needs, including extending the size of the structure from our standard 80′ x 120′ to 82′ x 120′ and enclosing the front and back of the arena. Angle-iron steel trusses create a wide-stretching clear-span space, ensuring our client can enjoy an expansive interior free of obstructions. Classic Equine breezeway doors and a steel-framed arena gate offer easy access to and from the arena, while the arena’s open-air design provides optimal ventilation and natural light.

We added three non-functional vented cupolas to the exterior for visual appeal. We also clad this structure with cedar board and batten siding and Douglas fir tongue and groove material — both of which were stained to create a weathered, rustic appearance.
