Most American kids grow up loving horses.
If you are like me, your first heroes were probably TV cowboys galloping to the rescue on magnificent horses, manes flashing and hooves flying. We could just imagine ourselves riding alongside our favorite Western idols.
Perhaps you remember some of these:
For many people, those “thrilling days of yesteryear” turned into a lifelong love of horses. Over 2 million people in the U.S. today own horses.
Horses represent a large investment of both time and money. Protecting these investments means sheltering these animals in the best facilities possible, both for the horses and the owners who love them.
RHINO prefabricated steel buildings make the best metal barns, shelters, stables, and steel indoor riding arenas.
Expanding RHINO metal buildings as your business grows is a snap. Simply add additional steel framing bays to the end walls of your existing structure to enlarge your barn, hay shed, stable, and covered or enclosed riding arena as needed.
Nothing is more relaxing than riding your favorite horse through the countryside on a clear, beautiful day. However, in many parts of the country there simply aren’t enough of those perfect weather days.
Steel indoor horse riding arenas are a growing trend in equestrian circles today. In milder climates these are sometimes open air buildings with a covered roof like a pavilion. These structures protect both riders and horses on rainy days and extremely hot days.
In more extreme climates, riding enthusiasts may opt for completely enclosed and climate-controlled steel indoor riding arenas which allow for year round teaching and training. After all, if your business is horse and rider training, every bad weather day is a day you’re losing revenues. Well-lighted indoor riding arenas provide a safe place for evening riding lessons and training sessions.
RHINO has sold many metal indoor riding arenas in recent years, and has done horse arena construction along with metal buildings for barns, stables, hay sheds, and other equestrian facilities.
The same RHINO steel structures used for horse arena construction work well for covered pavilions and outdoor event centers.
In 2008, Links Construction of Denton, Texas ordered a RHINO pre-fabricated metal for Chapel Creek Ranch horse arena construction in Sanger, Texas. The ranch breeds and trains magnificent Spanish Andalusian horses used in the pageantry and jousting performances at the Medieval Times Dinner and Tournament “castles.” The training arena is 100’ x 150’ x 16’.
Almost 50 million people have visited the nine locations of Medieval Times in California, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Maryland, New Jersey, South Carolina, Texas, and Canada. The horses for all nine Medieval Times castles are trained at Chapel Creek Ranch location.
In Wise County, Texas, fantastic new horse arena construction for Outlaw Equine is nearing completion. Using two connecting RHINO prefab steel buildings, the veterinary service will include offices, stables, and even a swimming pool for horses. The buildings measure 100’ x 70’ x 21’ and 100’ x 230’ x 15’.
The love of horses runs deep in our American culture. Our country was literally explored and expanded from the back of a horse. Horses are not only part of America’s past heritage, but still an integral part of rural life today.
Here are a few facts about the horse industry in the U.S.:
Horses in this country are used for breeding, farm and ranch work, informal competitions, mounted police, racing, recreation, rodeos, showing, mounted police, and even carriage work.
The reasons we love horses are clear: they represent a freedom to fly across the countryside in harmony with the horse beneath us— and the world around us.
Steel farm and ranch buildings also offer a type of freedom. They provide freedom from worry over the protection of the horses we love.
