Horizon Structures Announces Expanded Partnership with Boyd and Silva Martin!


For Immediate Release:                            11/18/2016

Horizon Structures is owned and operated by Dave Zook, who was born and raised in Lancaster County Pennsylvania, the heart of Amish Country.  Initially the company constructed primarily storage sheds and garages until Dave started seeing an ever increasing demand for horse barns, run-in sheds and indoor riding arenas.  As a result, Dave decided to expand his product line in the late 1990’s.

Horizon Structures is now the industry’s leader in quality pre-built and modular horse barns, run-in sheds and a variety of other equine and livestock shelters.  Their facility is “approximately 50 acres” with a 65,000 sq. ft. building employing 15-20 Amish carpenters, located right down the road from the home of Boyd & Silva Martin, at Windurra USA.

Horizon keeps an inventory of standard horse barns, horse stables, and run-in sheds in stock.  Since each structure is built-to-order, they are able to customize their designs to meet the needs of every customer.  They pride themselves on their high level of craftsmanship in producing Amish made barns, stables, storage buildings, sheds and garages which are built to last and of the highest quality.

Horizon Structures began their relationship with Boyd and Silva Martin in 2011 when there was an urgent need to move the horses quickly to Windurra USA after the barn fire at True Prospect Farm.  Boyd had purchased several used shed row barns as a quick solution to house his top event horses.  What has affectionately been dubbed Windurra USA’s “Shanty Town” has proven to be more than a short term solution.

When Silva needed a first-class, affordable, pre-fabricated option to supplement the stalls that she has at the main barn, the Martins turned to Horizon Structures.   Within a few weeks the barn structure was customized with automatic waterers, ceiling fans, lights and big Dutch doors on both the front and back of each stall for the horses to have a great view of the new farm.
Since then Horizon Structures has built the viewing pavilion and deck at Silva’s dressage ring and turn-out sheds throughout the farm.

Horizon Structures expanded their product line in 2009 to include the design and construction of larger indoor riding arenas.   In 2016 Horizon Structures approached Boyd and Silva Martin seeking their endorsement of their arena business due to the Martin’s broad knowledge of the equestrian industry.  Boyd joined Dave on tour of several recent indoor arena construction projects and he was highly impressed by the level of their work.


“I couldn’t believe the quality of their work.  I urge anyone out there in the equestrian community who needs a quality, affordable indoor arena for year round riding to contact the team at Horizon.   I have been thoroughly impressed with the look and quality of the buildings and most importantly, the service we have received from the team down at Horizon Structures on each of our projects.”

If you are on the market for a stand-alone indoor arena, or a combination barn and covered arena, take a look at some of Horizon’s most recent arena construction projects.  All of these projects are based upon quality pole barn design and are customized to the needs of each individual client.

Horizon Structures is currently offering their arena construction services to the Mid-Atlantic and New England regions due to the availability of their construction crew, but there are future plans to expand into other areas of the country.

  1. For outdoor riding arenas, height does not cause much issue since the area is exposed to wide open space for the rider and horse to move. However, indoor height measurements are the same across the board for indoor riding arenas with some variation involved.

  2. Whether you are building a dressage arena or another type of indoor arena, additives can provide the consistency that natural materials can’t. Most footing experts would agree that additive materials are not always required for a good footing surface. However, additives can always improve your footing from good to great.
