Project Description:

Devonwood Equestrian Centre – Sherwood, Oregon

This 42 acre site features a forty four stall horse training facility design, primarily for dressage. This extensive equestrian show facility has two indoor arenas, a 90′ x 252′ indoor arena 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 barn 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 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 cover each indoor arena for dust control. Site design required a new entry be constructed off a state highway. Constructed 1998-2001.
