Our New Indoor Arena!
It’s been an extremely busy summer, with construction crews working on our new hay barn and indoor arena. While the hay barn is now completely finished and filled to the brim with this year’s hay, the arena still has a few weeks to go before it’s ready. But we’re super excited and thought we’d share a few pics of the progress so far.
The arena has been built on the south side of the barn, with an indoor walkway linking the two buildings.
The west end of the arena, showing off our beautiful 8 foot windows, several of which slide open for ventilation.
Once inside, the enormity of the arena’s dimensions (80 x 120) becomes more apparent. It’s important to note, ceiling lights and the final layers of footing have not yet been installed.

We’ve chosen beadboard pine panels installed on an angle, to save everyone’s kneecaps!
