Barn, Stall, Arena and Paddock Details
The barn at Eastward is both bright and airy. It features a dropped ceiling painted white with fluorescent lighting and windows in every stall.
Two industrial ceiling fans provide abundant air flow, and each stall has an individual fan as well. Most of the stalls have a full Dutch door to an outside sand paddock, allowing further ventilation.
The steel sliding stall doors have open yokes to allow the horses to look directly down the aisle, and their pipe construction allows horses to see any activity in the aisle without raising their heads. This contributes to the calm, relaxed behavior of our horses.
The aisle features 4 grooming stalls and 2 wash stalls for tacking up and bathing. There are also two tack rooms with individual cabinets for each horse owner.
Our hay and shavings are stored outside of the barn proper, and trunks and equipment are stored overhead, minimizing fire risk. The barn and indoor arena are protected by a modern fire alarm system.
The 80' x 200' indoor arena is attached to the barn. It has glass and polycarbonate walls on both long sides and one short side. This provides plenty of natural daylight, supplemented by high pressure sodium lights at night.
The adjacent outdoor arena and grass paddocks beyond are fully visible from the indoors.
The footing indoors is a water-dependent sand/fiber mix which is groomed and leveled daily. It provides a consistent supportive footing for both flat work and jumping.
The outdoor arena is spacious at 150'x 200', and its footing is dust-free TravelRight — also groomed daily.
We have 12 grass paddocks, visible from the barn entrance and from both riding arenas. Every horse can have a minimum of 4 hours turnout time under full supervision.
