Common Arena Sizes – FCP Riding Arenas & Canopy Shelters
Custom Horse Arena Typical Sizing Requirements – Depending on your riding discipline, sizing requirements can vary. Here are some common arena dimensions.
Round Horse Pens (Training and Exercise)
The minimum recommended size for a round pen is 30 feet, while the maximum useful diameter is 100 feet. Also See Round Pens.
- A typical round pen size for horse training is usually 50 to 60 feet in diameter.
For formal dressage practice and competition riding, you will want a custom horse arena that is at least 66 feet wide. Examples Include:
- Competition and show Dressage arenas are 20 meters by 60 meters (66 ft x 197 feet).
- Practice Dressage Arenas run smaller at 20 meters by 40 meters. (66 ft x 131 feet).
Western Style Arenas
Western events that involve barrel racing or roping require longer arenas. Examples Include:
- Team Penning arenas are typically 120 feet by 200 feet.
- Roping arenas are typically 40 feet by 300 feet layout (or 70 ft x 240 feet if you have a return chute). Note: a long narrow arena may be fine, but be aware that narrow arenas may not have the same resale value as a wider arena.
Other Custom Arenas and Canopies
You can’t control the weather, but you can control, and significantly reduce, the impact harsh weather elements have on people, livestock, and property assets. FCP covered Arenas are great for having a shelter to get out of the hot sun or inclement weather.
- FCP Manufactures large custom arenas and canopy shelters for any application.
- Structural steel arena covers can go as much as 200’ with standard loads, less as snow loads increase.
