Fabric Structures for indoor riding arena?

So i've been doing lots of research on indoor riding arenas. Well i found this company called Clear Span Fabric Structures. I really like their idea, and it sounds great that it won't up my property taxes much if at all. So i wanted a few opinions on it, and if anyone has one, or have ridden in one and what is your thoughts on them.
Let me know your thoughts!! Thanks in advance!

Nice and light and airy, and great for bombproofing the spooky horse! Snow sliding down the sides is the monster sharpening his claws on the roof, rain is the monster shooting arrows at the arena, the wind is the monster trying to blow it down.... One thing to keep in mind is that you will need to install wooden kickboards on the sides so horses wont kick through the fabric.

I'd want a good warranty on the fabric which might need a lawyer to interpret. They are nice and bright even during cloudy days. They seem to attract flies and mosquitoes so you'll need some automatic sprayers to control them. The wider the bldg the higher the arches, the more metal gridwork and fabric.
