Uncovered Horse Arenas

Uncovered arenas are easier to build and less expensive.  Their use in harsh climates is limited.  The footing material and how it is constructed is the elaborate and costly part.  Good drainage is imperative and is often overlooked due to the added cost.  A poorly drained arena is useless and may cause injury to the horses being trained on it.  Water cannons or moving sprinklers help keep the dust down in the dry season.

This gallery displays many of the uncovered arenas for your imagination to explore.  Grab a cup of coffee, darken the room, grab a pen and paper to write notes, and sit back and enjoy.
