Unicorn Park Stud and Equestrian Centre

Project Summary

Spantech was contracted to design and construct an indoor equestrian centre for Unicorn Park Stud and Equestrian Centre.

The brief was simple: make it all-weather, light, airy and large enough to accommodate a wide range of equestrian events.

The Equestrian Centre

The completed equestrian centre is a very light-weight cost-effective design featuring a 68m x 25m indoor arena.

The riding surface is a mixture of sand and silicon particles suitable for all equestrian disciplines. Over the arena, Spantech’s free-spanning curved panels create a high, uncluttered roofline.  The Spantech roof supports an overhead watering system to ensure a dust free environment, even in summer.

Large skylight panels on either side of the building provide ample natural light.  The excellent lighting system allows night time use of the facility.

Some of the other features of the facility include an arena observation/meeting room with kitchen facilities.

A big advantage of the Spantech design is the elimination of trusses.  As the arena doors are often open, birds and other pests can access to the structure.  However, as there are no trusses in the building, there is no place for birds and other pests to perch or nest. This helps keep the facility clean and healthy for riders and horses alike.

The Indoor Arena is adjacent to:

  • Cavalettis and jumping equipment storage area
  • Generous float parking area
  • Private and shared paddocks with excellent electric fencing, automatic filling water troughs, loose boxes and trees
  • Lunging round yard
  • Day yards with good lighting for night time use
  • Lock up tack room
  • Horse wash
  • Feed storage facilities
  • Outdoor jumps paddock, and
  • Local riding trails

Unicorn Park Stud and Equestrian Centre

Unicorn Park Stud and Equestrian Centre has the facilities to accommodate a wide range of horsey needs. Conveniently located, centrally between Ballarat, Geelong and Melbourne, it is a popular place to agist horses. It also offers regular clinics and lessons with renowned horse professionals and equestrian events for all age levels.

When riders agist at Unicorn Park they have use of all the facilities – including the indoor arena, jumps paddock and round yard.
