The Rundown

Seahorse Run is a riding and boarding facility in Suffolk, Virginia. Covering their outdoor riding arena with a fabric roof protects the specialized footing and allows horses and riders to exercise and train year round.

Customer Success

“No matter how hot it was in the summer, it was always 20 degrees cooler under the canopy. In the winter, the light and moving air allow the space to warm up in the morning, unlike an enclosed arena.”
