Dutch doors to outside, gives you another door to get the horse out in the emergency, and another window looking outside with bars. Runs with gravel - pea gravel or birds eye. Concrete stall flooring with inch thick cushy mats. Bars or stiff mesh in between stalls but with 4 or 6 feet of solid wood on one wall in between horses to provide a safe haven for eating. Drop down window on door so you can leave it open for friendly horses to stick their head out or close it for not-so nice horses. Rubber brick in aisle, tie stalls, automatic waters that monitor intake in stalls....
80x120 indoor arena with crumb rubber and special synthetic (not slippery or dusty) dirt/sand.
66 ft x 198 full size outdoor dressage arena with well draining footing.
100x200 outdoor well-draining jumping arena.
66 ft outdoor round pen. Ideally a bigger, perhaps 90x180 indoor arena as well. And on the thoughts of a dream barn, maybe even a big 200x300 outdoor as well...
