Benefits of Equine Riding Arenas & Stables

Natural Lighting for Improved Performance and Healthy Environment

Fabric Buildings provide up to 80% natural light transfer for a more comfortable fabric building. Building operating costs are reduced as artificial lighting is not required during daytime. Natural light also provides for more consistent reproductive cycles in mares.

Eliminate Shadows and Dark Areas

The fabric cover disperses natural light evenly throughout the building. Artificial light is reflected evenly by the fabric cover eliminating shadows and dark areas which can distract your horse or cause it to balk.

All Weather Solutions for Year Round Riding, Training and Competitions

Your G&B Fabric Covered Building lets you ride and compete regardless of the weather conditions.

High Energy Efficiency and Reduced Operating Costs

Fabric Covered Buildings do not conduct or radiate heat. This allows for a more consistent internal temperature which is cooler in summer and warmer in winter when compared with traditional wood or steel clad structures.

Clear Span Open Floor Design

The unique design of your G&B Building provides the maximum usable floor space by eliminating support posts and pillars. Our clear span buildings can be installed with widths of up to 250’ or more and unlimited length.

Reduce Noise for a Quiet,Calm Environment

The fabric roof of your G&B Building absorbs noise and reduces echoes. This allows both the horse and the rider to remain calm and focused.

Superior Air Quality & Ventilation

The large air volume provided by the unique coverall dome design results in superior air quality and air circulation. Harmful molds and dust borne bacteria are reduced for a healthier environment.

Reduced Capital Investment

G&B Fabric Covered Buildings require a smaller initial investment, lower maintenance costs and faster installation times than traditional post frame buildings. G&B’s buildings are pre-engineered, certified and installed by professional, highly trained installation crews.
