I think when the payments are done like $145,000. We put $11k down and pay $1100 something a month for 10 years..This was also for the lights .We spent about $6k on the concrete piers and we have about $10k in rentals. We have another $10k to put into the end walls and doors.. and probably another $5k in footing and god only knows how much in stalls.. I don't want to think about it! Lol

We finally got the electric company to come out to put in a new meter so we could hook up our arena lights. Looks pretty darn cool at night!

Looks awesome!

How does it do with sound - like high winds hitting it or hard rain/hail?

So far so good! Good acoustics... people can still hear you when it rains unlike the metal covered arenas in our area.

Does that mean it is done enough to use as a ring now?

I recently rode in a Clearspan that belongs to my neighbors. It became apparent within 5 minutes that the metal supports on the sides were a giant hazard as they taper to the bottom so my horse happily fit under them but nearly decapitated me. My trainer ended up putting barrels, chairs, muck buckets and whatever else she could find in front of each support to keep my horse away from them.

Now granted, I was on a green, spazzy, newly 5yr old (first time I trailered and rode him at a different place) but oh my did that arena scare me!

Are you planning on putting something on the sides to make them safer? My neighbors have kindly offered me the use of their arena this winter but since my choice was near decapitation or scary barrels and chairs... I'm not sure I want to!
