A fabric covered building is perfect for riding schools.

Providing the best space for riding schools

Riding schools need to cater to the needs of current and prospective students if they want to succeed and grow. By having a riding arena that allows riders to safely practice and train, schools can bolster their business and provide a more enjoyable and worthwhile experience for students.

A fabric covered building from Winkler Structures is one of the best options available due to affordability, customizable and efficiency.

Maximize positive reviews

According to the Certified Horsemanship Association, consumers consider several factors before enrolling in a riding school and working with an instructor. By offering a superb riding arena all year long, schools can increase the number of positive reviews and appeal to a larger clientele. 

“The Allied Gatorshield steel used by Winkler Structures also provides superior corrosion resistance.”

Winkler Structures’ fabric covered buildings are among the most sought after spaces for riders. With fantastic light transparency and plenty of overhead room, riders will never feel claustrophobic when entering the arena. 

Quality materials 

Winkler Structures also boasts the use of high-quality materials in all its clear span buildings. The specialty polyethylene fabric stands up to snow, wind and rain. In addition, the UV protection coating minimizes degradation due to sun exposure, and the building is backed by a 15-year warranty. 

Winklers Structures uses Allied Gatorshield steel because it provides superior corrosion resistance. Gatorshield is also 33 percent stronger than many common alternatives, making it ideal for riding arenas.  

Customizable for all needs 

With designers working to provide the ideal solution for every customer, Winkler Structures can match just about everyone’s building needs. In addition, the materials used by this operation pass the most demanding certification standards and building codes

These clear span buildings are also climate controlled and can have more insulation added if necessary. No matter the location of a riding school, riders and instructors can be comfortable through every season of the year. 

Think safety 

While horseback riding is an activity many enjoy, Equine World noted that there are some dangers associated with it that make finding a school with appropriate safety precautions important to potential students. Not only should schools ensure their instructors are first aid trained, but they should also ensure the riding arena can be entered quickly and easily. 

Winkler Structures can create buildings that allow easy access to the interior of the structure in case of an emergency. If a rider needs medical attention, ambulances can quickly and efficiently pull into the facility and address the needs of the patient.  

Save money 

Light transparency and climate control make a fabric covered building from Winkler Structures a more affordable option in the long run. With fabric that allows sunshine through during daylight hours, riding schools will not need to pay for additional artificial lighting, saving money on infrastructure and energy costs. 

In addition, the material keeps the interior 10 to 15 degrees warmer during the winter and 10 to 15 degrees cooler during the summer. Schools are alleviated of some additional costs and those savings can be passed on to further development and growth of the facility.
