Equine Riding Arenas

An Extraordinary Riding Experience

Ride and train year round, regardless of weather conditions, in a ClearSpan Indoor Riding Arena. There are many benefits to choosing a tension fabric structure over a traditional wood or steel structure, including the light-permeable fabric cover and a unique design that allows maximum space for riding activities. Because of the fast construction, durability, versatility and economical cost, tension fabric-covered equestrian arenas are a superior alternative to conventional structures, offering the best value for your investment. ClearSpan also offers many customizable options for your indoor arena, including ventilation systems, doors, lighting, stalls, fencing and more.

Features & Benefits

Sustainable Building Features
Sustainable Building Features - ClearSpan Fabric Structures

ClearSpan's white fabric covers let natural light shine through, reducing the need for artificial lighting and lowering your energy consumption. The covers' translucent and reflective qualities also allow further energy savings by providing indoor temperature stability. ClearSpan arenas are climate responsive — they stay cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter — which will extend your riding season.

Spacious Interior
Spacious Interior - ClearSpan Fabric Structures

Due to the unique engineering of ClearSpan equine arenas, all of the inside space is useable. There are no internal columns or other obstructions to interfere with your riding arena layout. With superior height and clearance compared to traditional metal or wood buildings, our structures allow you to utilize as much space as possible. Extra space lets you add seating, stalls and more.

Exceptional Acoustics

The sound-absorbing quality of ClearSpan covers reduces outside noises and indoor echoing, providing a peaceful, stress-free environment for people and horses. You will not have to limit riding activities to clear days in a ClearSpan indoor arena because the covers diminish harsh sounds of rain or sleet pelting against the roof. Horses stay comfortable and won't get spooked because of severe weather.

Excellent Air Quality

Experience a horse riding environment that is fresher and healthier than conventional steel and wood buildings. The natural light that filters through ClearSpan covers reduces moisture levels and bacteria growth, which helps eliminate equine respiratory problems. Superior ventilation options, such as roll-up sides and ridge vents, are also available for improved air quality.

Fewer Pests
Fewer Pests - ClearSpan Fabric Structures

Pests and insects won't be a nuisance or cause damage in a ClearSpan horse riding arena. Without traditional insulation and wood construction, there are fewer pests to bother you and your horses. The corner-free design, combined with abundant natural lighting, creates an unappealing setting for nesting rodents and offers no hiding places for them.

Minimal Foundation Requirements
Minimal Foundation Requirements - ClearSpan Fabric Structures

Costly concrete foundations and footings are not necessary for ClearSpan riding arenas, regardless of whether the structure is for permanent or temporary use. Construct your equine riding arena on the surface of your choice or save money by installing a structure directly over your current outdoor arena, with little site preparation.

Ours versus Theirs

ClearSpan Fabric Riding Arena - ClearSpan Fabric Structures
Traditional Wood/Metal Arena - ClearSpan Fabric Structures

Energy Efficient

Interior stays 15-20° cooler in summer, 15-20° warmer in winter, which extends the riding season at lower cost.

Require heating during cold weather and cooling during hot weather, resulting in higher energy costs.

Bright and Open

Fabric cover lets in natural light, even when it's not bright out; riders and horses are more comfortable in open, airy bright space.

Dark and gloomy with low ceilings and little natural light; costly electric bills; cold, industrial feel.


Sound-absorbing fabric creates peaceful, serene riding environment for riders and horses.

Echoes inside and amplified noise from outside can disrupt riding and spook horses.

Easy to Relocate and Expand

If you move, your arena can be relocated; if you need more space, you can easily expand your arena.

Permanent and inflexible! Cannot be relocated, eventually needs to be destroyed and disposed of; costly and time consuming to add on to.

Did You Know...

ClearSpan Fabric Structures will save you money on energy costs.

Abundant natural light limits the need for daytime artificial lighting. Temperature-stabilizing fabric covers reduce the need for heating and cooling systems.

"We are really happy with our ClearSpan Truss Arch. We save on utilities. Even though we installed lights, we rarely use them. There's light in our building all the time from sunrise to sunset. Even on a cloudy day you can work in it all day without lights. Everyone who comes inside comments on how bright it is. You'd swear you were outside." — Al Mensen, County Line Farms

ClearSpan structures provide a peaceful environment for riding.

The sound-absorbing cover of ClearSpan structures reduces indoor echoing and outside noises.

"We also like the acoustics. We play a stereo while the kids ride. The sound fills the arena, but it doesn't bounce. It's loud, but not spooky sounding." — Andy Hillstrand, Hobby Horse Acres

ClearSpan makes buying easy with flexible financing options.

ClearSpan structures can be financed in house with flexible terms, allowing us to offer you more personal service.

"We've been pleased by the special attention we've received from ClearSpan representatives." — Carolyn Vadeboncoeur, Rocky Knoll Stables
