Friendship Equestrian Center (FEC), a boarding and training facility in upstate New York, has an 80 ft x 200 ft fabric riding arena used for year-round training, riding and dressage practice, originally installed in 2004. After a short time using the original building, the staff and customers at FEC noticed mildew growth along the walls and ceiling of the arena. As the mildew problem worsened over time and some microtears in the building started affecting the climate inside, staff knew it was time to replace the cover on the building.

Protecting this equipment helps it run more efficiently.
We didn’t have any experience with fabric buildings, but they were a cost-effective solution for our needs. Protecting this equipment helps it run more efficiently. So far the building is doing the job of providing protection for the new equipment.
The building allowed us to get everything we wanted for the price we could afford.
We are really happy with everything it’s provided for our community, including the lifestyle changes. We attracted 30 new kids to our school, which is really big for our town. And we feel that building is one of the main reasons for it. The building allowed us to get everything we wanted for the price we could afford.
Legacy was very easy to work with.
The old buildings used tubular steel, and no matter what you do, the salt gets inside the tubes and corrodes them. They came out here with their crew, rented all their equipment, and erected the buildings in three weeks flat – a week ahead of schedule. It's a stand-up company.
