Golden Sunset Farm

Challenge – No space to ride in inclement weather
Solution – Hercules Truss Arch Building
Size – 83′ wide x 120′ long
Application – Indoor riding arena

Golden Sunset Farm is a small horse farm in Virginia which is owned and operated by Doug and Barbara Harrison. This ten-acre farm is for the Harrison family’s personal use and currently houses eight horses. Virginia can get quite cold in the winter, and the Harrisons realized they needed a place to be able to ride all year round.

Previously, Golden Sunset Farm only had an outdoor arena which made riding difficult in the winter months when temperatures can drop below freezing or when the weather was otherwise inclement. The Harrisons began researching indoor arena options and came across ClearSpan Fabric Structures on their affiliate company’s website.

Doug says, “We chose a Hercules Truss Arch Building based on the affordable cost and open feel of the structures. We had checked out other ClearSpan indoor arenas in our area to get an idea of what they were like.” Doug and Barbara are pleased with how the purchase and installation process went and how the building is working out. They share, “The ClearSpan installation teams were outstanding. They were professional, efficient and did a first-class job.”

About the building Harrison says, “We love the bright, airy feeling of our ring. We also like that we have the ability to use virtually the entire covered area. The atmosphere inside the arena is quieter than a typical wood or steel structure and the horses seem to like it better.” He concludes, “I don’t think I could have made a better choice than a ClearSpan building for our indoor riding arena.”
