New Equestrian Sports

Equestrian SportsWithin the past few years the equestrian community has seen several new riding disciplines emerge. There are many styles and types of riding seen across the globe, from trail horses that spend most of their days herding cattle across the land, to hunter jumpers that spend hours in the ring. Some of the more traditional riding styles are: dressage, show jumping, reigning, western pleasure, driving and vaulting. Of course there are countless more, but the two newest disciplines that I find interesting are western dressage and mounted shooting. Every day I talk to a broad spectrum of equine customers, some ride dressage, others vault and several barrel race. Over the past two years I have encountered more and more customers who ride western dressage and participate in mounted shooting events. I thought it may be interesting to go into a little more detail about these two riding styles.  Continue reading

Unveiling Our New 85’W Riding Arena at Black Swan Farm

85 x 120 G Ostrander OH A

This blog was submitted by: Kat Hayden, ClearSpan Truss Arch Sales Specialist

Brenda and David Webster contacted me back in Dec. 2013 to discuss the possibility of purchasing a riding arena for their business, Black Swan Farm, located in the rolling hills of central Ohio. Brenda owns two donkeys and a horse named Zip that she keeps at home. This past winter was particularly harsh, so she and David decided to purchase one of our 85’ wide structures for indoor riding. In March, we began design on the 85’W x 120’L gable style structure that included two end walls, doors, helical anchors and installation by our ClearSpan crew. Brenda even stopped by our ClearSpan booth at the Equine Affair in Columbus to tell me how excited she was about the arena! Continue reading
