Architecture for the Horse Industry

Indoor Riding Arena, New York

view from south

For a private client, Harrison·Banks designed an indoor riding arena, adjacent to a 22-stall horse barn, on a large site. Other buildings on the 80 acre property include a large Georgian house connected to an indoor pool and tennis court by a formal garden. The arena has Glu-lam arches, spaced according to the locations of standard dressage letters, and is built into a hill, diminishing its mass. The building has a stone base with clapboard above, and large windows. The arena has a large observation area, located above jump storage and mechanical space.

The arena has a "horse vestibule" to allow riders to safely announce their prescence and enter the arena. The doors to the vestibule are sufficently large for large vehicles.

Construction completed in summer 2003.
