LED Horse Arena Lights
Whether you’re looking to light up an indoor arena or an outdoor riding ring, led lighting fixtures should be on your horizon. When installed properly, these lights should provide a bright shine with little to no glare or shadows. A dimly lit riding arena or ring can be dangerous for both the horse and rider. Even lights in indoor facilities need to be able to hold up to large amounts of dust and potential moisture, so carefully considering all your options for your horse arena is essential. Creating a lighting plan for your horse arena is a sure fire way of getting great results before you have to spend any money.
Horse Arena Lighting Challenges
If you’re looking for horse arena lighting, chances are you know exactly what the challenges are. In any type of lighting, you should pay special attention to the light distribution to ensure that your lights don’t cause glare or create shadows. But, with horses, this is especially important. As these animals are prone to spooking, when you’re lighting a riding ring, you’ll want to ensure that the environment is as close to daylight as possible.
Another challenge that both indoor and outdoor equestrian arena lighting faces is exposure to the elements. Outdoors, the lights should be expected to handle everything that Mother Nature throws at them. From high winds and rains to dust and animals, these lights should be able to handle it all. And, surprisingly, indoor rings present similar problems. With horse arena footing often being some form of sand, these lights may experience even more dust than outdoor ones.. Keeping all this in mind, make sure you keep an eye on the IP rating of your horse arena lighting.
