Oregon Equestrian Facility Design and Planning

Equine Facility Design is a professional firm of equestrian architects and planners. The following are some examples of the Oregon equestrian facility design and planning projects we have completed or are currently managing.

  • Hunter Jumper Farm, Oregon
    This 215 acre Oregon equestrian facility design and planning project will house 60-70 horses when completed. Equine Facility Design began the site design when the land was purchased in 2001 and has managed the design team through construction which is expected to be completed in September 2009. Equine Facility Design developed the site layout of roads, parking, building areas, pastures, paddocks, trails, outdoor arena, Grand Prix jump field, pond, and site features. Our equestrian architects created structures which include a 125′ x 250′ indoor steel riding arena building design with an attached viewing room, storage, and maintenance area;  and multiple horse barn designs, including a 15 stall retirement horse barn, a 22 stall training barn with rehab facilities, a six stall stallion barn with laboratory and breeding room, a 12 stall broodmare barn with 12′ x 24′ stalls that can become 12′ x 12′ stalls at the time of weaning foals. Equine Facility Design also designed the main residence, maintenance and storage buildings, and pasture shelters. Improvements include pasture development, fencing, drainage, signage, entry gates, site lighting, and a compost facility.

Equine Facility Design also designed new site entry gates, walls, signage, and landscaping.
  • Equestrian Center, Sherwood, Oregon
    This 42 acre Oregon equestrian facility design and planning project features a forty four stall horse training facility design, primarily for dressage. Our equestrian architects created two indoor arenas designs, a 90′ x 252′ indoor riding arena design with heated spectator area, clubhouse, vet room, wash stalls, tack rooms, grooming stalls, restrooms with showers, and offices. The second floor of the clubhouse contains audio-video equipment and is an announcer’s booth for shows. Attached by a covered breezeway is a 66′ x 132′ arena with a spectator’s bench on a raised platform behind a five foot kick wall. The attached five stall horse barn design includes isolation stalls, laundry, tack room, rest room, wash/grooming stall, and lined feed room. Across the covered courtyard is hay and shavings storage. The structure also includes a garage, workshop, and covered trailer parking.
    Our Oregon equestrian facility planning and design services include site development for six all-weather round pens for turnout, two which are to be covered, ten pastures with grassed lanes between, three full court outdoor competition arenas with spectator seating, and judges stands, and a 125′ x 250′ warm up arena. The site is designed to accommodate dressage shows with temporary stalls for 120 horses and parking areas for trucks, vans, and RVs. A permanent structure for bathrooms, showers, and vendors is planned. Storm water from the roofs is channeled into a pond and stream which the entry road crosses. The site is enclosed with a perimeter fence, automatic gates, with a riding trail around the perimeter. The entire structure is covered by fire sprinklers and automatic sprinklers and each indoor horse arena design includes automatic sprinklers for dust control. Site design required a new entry be constructed off a state highway. Constructed 1998-2001.
  • French Hill Farm, Wilsonville, Oregon
    Equine Facility Design was involved in the renovation of this existing hunter/jumper horse training facility of 45 stalls. Work included re-roofing, new concrete aisles, stall fronts, doors, windows, lighting, viewing room, a new exerciser, renovation of the parking lot with new layout and plantings, development of outdoor paddocks with all weather footing, improvements to the outdoor derby field, and landscaping throughout the property.

  • The Hunt Club, Oregon
    Equine Facility Design has been involved in the site search and assessment of financial planning for moving a historic hunt club from the current site to a new site in the surrounding county land. The new Oregon equestrian facility design will serve the existing needs of the members as well as expand their potential to hold additional income producing shows. The new equestrian show facility design will have a large covered arena with viewing area, clubroom, concession, kitchen, locker rooms, rest rooms, and covered mounted waiting area. The main arena riding area will be 120′ x 240′. A secondary arena will have a 72′ x 144′ indoor arena with adjacent support spaces of tack rooms, groom and wash stalls. The site will have a grass grand prix field, an outdoor dressage arena, and an outdoor 100′ x 200′ multi-use arena. There will be perimeter fencing and trails with cross country jumps around the property. The 72 full time boarded horses are separated into three different barns, each with its own office for a trainer and its own feed room. There is a central storage area for hay, bedding, equipment and an adjacent compost facility to handle all waste produced. There will be 180 10′ x 10′ show stalls and parking for trucks, trailers, and autos. It is anticipated that there will be up to 16 shows per year using the facility with ongoing daily training activities for members and boarders. Equine Facility Design will manage the equestrian architect design team for the project and has been involved in the budget and income planning for the project as well as public presentations. Construction is anticipated to start spring of 2009.
  • Deschutes River Ranch, Bend, Oregon
    This 450 acre historic, working cattle ranch has 30 home sites ranging from one acre to 20 acres. At the heart of the development will be the ranching and equine operations. Home sites look down upon the grazing areas and equine center along the Deschutes River. Riding trails run through the ranch property, along the river, and connect to surrounding public lands for riding.
    Master planning of this residential community in central Oregon includes an extensive equestrian community design. The equine facility consists of a 150′ x 300′ outdoor arena with pens for holding cattle during events; a covered 125′ x 250′ arena that includes viewing areas and a clubroom; and barns that will be constructed in 10 stall modules around a round pen and common area.

    On this 80 acre site, Equine Facility Design developed twelve home sites ranging in size from two to three and one half acres. The site, previously farmed, had significant slopes, trees, and distant views from the hillside lots. Equine Facility Design was responsible for road and lot layout; site grading; as well as the equine facilities. The equestrian community design includes an equine center which is located on five acres and will feature a 70′ x 180′ indoor horse riding arena with 24 stalls, a 100′ x 200′ outdoor arena, a covered round pen, all weather turnout paddocks, caretaker’s residence, storage for trailers, and pastures in the common space.

Oregon equestrian facility design and planning services will include renovation of some existing structures and addition of a covered arena, new pastures, and riding/walking trails through the development.
  • Oak Hills Ranch, Ashland, Oregon
    This historic cattle ranch is located in the hills eight miles west of Ashland. The sloped mixed oak and pine forest offers excellent views of the valley below.

  • Morley Barn, Lake Oswego, Oregon
    This two stall horse farm design project is located on a three acre parcel of land. The design needed to reflect the materials and style of the owner’s residence and existing guesthouse. The structure had to be sited so as not to disturb views or offend neighbors. The brick and lap siding, and the roofing also had to match the existing structures. The interior was finished with red cedar and custom stall fronts. The interior of stalls was lined with HDPE recycled lumber. Completed 2000.
  • Private Equestrian Facility, Bend, Oregon
    This five acre horse farm design is part of a larger Oregon equestrian facility design and planning project.

Completed 2005.
