I agree. However, I would want either an area where I could put the pasture horses in away from the arena, or, even better, another isolated arena. Then, if you had a horse who got distracted easily and didnt have much (if any) training under saddle (or on the ground) you could work with it and teach it basic controls and then introduce other distractions.

OP: I like the sound of a you shaped barn, or, like what ponyboy said with the little aisles going off. One of my dream barns is a u/horseshoe shape with a fountain or miny garden in the middle. Another cool idea is stalls with rounded off courners, like hexagonal stalls. A lot of space in stalls gets wasted in the typical 90% angles.
