Equestrian > Riding Arena


The Belmont riding arena is the optimal layout for a standard small-sized dressage arena, but also expandable to best suit your program. This riding arena features a tapered liner for rider and horse protection, skylights for added natural light, and open or enclosed options best suited for your climate.


At Morton, our building experts ensure your riding arena is optimized and designed accurately for the safety of your horses and efficiency for desired use. This means you’ll benefit from the best performance of your structure. We work with you to understand your equestrian program, assess the build site, and design an arena tailored to how you intend to use the space now and in the future. Thinking through the layout is critical to ensure you have optimal and functional space today and as your operation expands to avoid costly building modifications in the future.
