- Equestrian Center, Sherwood, Oregon
This 42 acre site features a forty four stall horse training facility design, primarily for dressage. This extensive horse show facility has two indoor arenas, a 90' x 252' indoor arena with heated spectator area, clubhouse, vet room, wash stalls, tack rooms, grooming stalls, restrooms with showers, and offices. Attached by a covered breezeway is a 66' x 132' arena with a spectator’s bench on a raised platform behind a five foot kick wall. The attached five stall equestrian barn includes isolation stalls, laundry, tack room, rest room, wash/grooming stall, and feed room. The structure also includes a garage, workshop, and covered trailer parking. Our equestrian facility planning and design services include site development for six all-weather round pens for turnout, ten pastures with grassed lanes between, three full court outdoor competition arenas with spectator seating, and a 125' x 250' warm up arena. The site is designed to accommodate dressage shows with temporary stalls for 120 horses and parking areas for trucks, vans, and RVs. Storm water from the roofs is channeled into a pond and stream which the entry road crosses. The site is enclosed with a perimeter fence, automatic gates, with a riding trail around the perimeter. The entire structure is covered by fire sprinklers and automatic sprinklers cover each indoor arena for dust control. Site design required a new entry be constructed off a state highway. Constructed 1998-2001.
- Hunter Creek Farm, Wilsonville, Oregon
This 120 acre site has been developed as a horse show venue, primarily for hunter/jumper shows and hosts six to eight shows during the summer season. The facility currently has a four acre grass grand prix field, four outdoor arenas and a 200’ x 300’ warm up area. Currently shows utilize portable stalls for shows of up to 700 horses. The facility master plan designed by Equine Facility Design includes future improvements of two indoor competition arenas with viewing stands, concession, restrooms and shower facilities, 400 permanent show stalls, vet and farrier facilities, and expanded parking areas. Equine Facility Design also designed new site entry gates, walls, signage, and landscaping.
- Longview Horse Park, Kansas City, Missouri
At this 500 acre Jackson County owned site, there exists a horse show facility with stabling for 180 horses, two multi-discipline competition arenas, and a cross country course used for eventing and driving. Many different disciplines use the facility and it is booked solid throughout the outdoor show season. Equine Facility Design was retained to assess the existing conditions and tasked to provide equestrian facility planning and design, including a master plan and phasing for future improvements. Those improvements will include three additional outdoor horse riding arenas of various sizes and footings, additional stabling, site development of roads, parking, RV parking area, pathways, signage, and landscape elements. Equine Facility Design will be creating a rendered graphic master plan to be used for promotional and fundraising purposes along with a phasing plan and cost estimates. Initial master planning phase summer 2008.
- Menlo Circus Club, Menlo, California
The clients of this tennis and equestrian club wanted to construct a new 65 stall Kentucky style equestrian barn with a clubhouse, offices, and separate storage building where an existing barn was located. Equine Facility Design's site layout and building design maintained short travel distances to the clubhouse and used building elements to create natural ventilation, overhead storage, effective natural day lighting, and a social environment for the horses. Site planning and building design were completed for fundraising and construction estimating. Construction Drawings completed by a local firm and constructed in 2007.
- Equestrian Club , United States
Equine Facility Design has been involved in the site search and assessment of financial planning to investigate the feasibility of possibly moving an existing riding club from the current site in town to a new site in the surrounding county land. The new facility will serve the existing needs of the members as well as expand their potential to hold additional income producing shows. The new equestrian show facility design will have a large covered arena with viewing area, clubroom, concession, kitchen, locker rooms, rest rooms, and covered mounted waiting area. The main arena riding area will be 120' x 240'. A secondary arena will have a 72' x 144' indoor arena with adjacent support spaces of tack rooms, groom and wash stalls. The site will have a grass grand prix field, an outdoor dressage arena, and an outdoor 100' x 200' multi-use arena. There will be perimeter fencing and trails with cross country jumps around the property. The 72 full time boarded horses are separated into three different equestrian barns, each with its own office for a trainer and its own feed room. There is a central storage area for hay, bedding, equipment and an adjacent compost facility to handle all waste produced. There will be 180 10' x 10' show stalls and parking for trucks, trailers, and autos. It is anticipated that there could be up to 16 shows per year using the facility with ongoing daily training activities for members and boarders. Equine Facility Design has been involved in the design of the potential project and in the budget and income planning for the project as well as public presentations.
