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
