How Do I Light a Riding Arena at Night?
We have lit 100’s of horse arenas across the country. First we start by creating a lighting plan, and then shipping customers the lights. We can suggest pole locations or use your existing poles to find the ideal lighting for your horse arena.
How Do You Light Up a Horse Arena?
There are two types of horse arenas – covered or indoor arenas and outdoor arenas. Both are easy to light up. Indoor or covered arenas can be lit from above with either High Bay LED Lights or LED Low Bay Lighting installed from the ceiling. They provide both the proper light levels and balanced lighting.
Outdoor arenas are more challenging, since the lights are pole mounted. To solve this challenge, we recommend creating a lighting plan. With a lighting plan, you can choose the right flood or area light to provide the best light levels and balance.
Do You Sell Indoor and Outdoor Horse Arena Lights?
We do, we offer both Indoor Horse Arena Lights and Outdoor Horse Arena Lights, both designed to provide bright, trouble free lighting for years. Even our indoor lights are designed to be protected from wind and rain, in case you have a covered but open horse arena.
What Are the Benefits of LED Horse Arena Lights?
The main benefits are safe riding and energy savings. It’s important to create a well lit and balanced lighting across the entire arena for both the rider and the horse. Beyond that, you need a reliable, dependable, and energy saving solution. LEDs are instant on and instant off. And you can expect 10-20 years of trouble free, bright, and high quality lighting.
How Many LED Horse Arena Lights Do I Need for a Horse / Riding Arena?
It depends. Some customers want an arena to have 5 to 10 foot candles so they have a bright space to ride at night. Others use their arenas for competition or training, and need higher light levels. The key is to avoid having shadows between the fixtures on the arena.
The secret to determining how many lights you need is to have us create a lighting plan. It’s not just for you. Its for us so that we know the solution we are offering is going to work. We will work with your space, and your requirements, to give you the best lighting option.

How Many LED Lights Do You Need to Light Up a 250 X 150 Feet Horse Arena?
We’re asked all the time to light up outdoor arenas, around 250 ft wide by 150 ft wide. We usually see 3 light poles per 250 foot long side.
The best lighting solutions we have found include 3 lights per pole. And depending on the light we choose, you can achieve 5-7 foot candles with our 200 Watt outdoor flood light. And 10-15 foot candles with our 400 Watt flood light.
One thing to note – higher power is not always better. Over large areas, more lower powered lights will give better, balanced lighting.
How Can You Ensure the Light’s Balanced? With Few Shadows?
Always start with creating a lighting plan. It will tell you exactly what kind of lights you need and where you need to install them.
That is why we offer lighting plans for free.
They allow us to design a solution so you can see the light levels before you buy. And it will also show how balanced the light across the entire arena will be. And balanced lighting is shadow free.
How Much Glare Will There Be? What Can You Do to Reduce Glare?
You can reduce glare with a few techniques. Mounting angles and higher mounting heights help as well. Adding frosted covers to high bays reduces glare for indoor or covered lighting. The type of glare reduction techniques will depend on your specific location.
How High Should You Mount LED Horse Riding Arena Lights?
There is no set rule. We will work with your existing lights and poles – or – suggest new locations and heights. That’s the benefit of being able to create lighting plans – we can find solutions no matter what the heights are.
