    I think that Herself's brain would explode if she set foot in any of those. So awesome though, each of them!

    WOWZA. I am IN LOVE with the Reitarena Stubei. I love, love, love modern architecture and someday (if I ever win mega millions ) I have a dream of building a super modern version of a farmhouse with a barn and arena in a similar style. I have rarely seen modern style barns and I think this is the first modern style indoor I have come across. It's really fabulous and is going in my "a girl can dream" Pinterest category

    I'm also loving the stork's nest. That is truly a work of art.

    Anybody else see the fly bell boot in the last pic from the "Centre d’entrainement de Grosbois à Boissy-Saint-Léger"? I was amused.

    I'm even more disappointed in my indoor ring now. My coach moved my horse (she owns him, I ride) and said it was an up and coming show barn... it practically black a night, I can't always see the other end of it, and that's with the lights on.

    I don't get what you're talking about... Mine looks just like the Vienna riding school except it's at ground level (level with the corinthian columns and windows all around). Doesn't everybody's indoor look like this?

    I love the one in France! I had a good laugh at what my horses would think of the Storks Nest (Czech Republic) arena. We'd probably put on a good show!

    Ew for number one. It's a neat design but a round riding ring? No thanks.
    Number 2 doesn't impress me that much and looks really narrow. Obviously a dressage ring.
    Number 3 is definitely the best, imo due to it's size. Much better suited to h/j. It's beautiful too.
    Number 4 is beautiful, but too narrow.
    Number 5 is nice but too small.

    Don't tell my pony that there's a Haflinger in that Storks Nest one...she'll be demanding an appropriate upgrade any day now...
