Outdoor and indoor arenas rely on effective lighting solutions. Without the presence of bright, efficient lighting, players and fans alike risk both only safety but their overall enjoyment of the event. Horse arenas, in particular, hold unique challenges and requirements. AEON LED Luminaries provide a bright, glare-free lighting option that is ideal for the individual needs of horse arenas of any size.
Horse arenas are enclosed areas usually used for indoor or outdoor rodeos, horse shows, equestrian training sporting events, and other forms of audience entertainment. Whether you are upgrading an existing facility’s illumination needs or building a new arena, procuring exceptional lighting and installation is essential. To acquire the best lumen output and performance while also providing the best overall lighting results for your space, you should select the best fixtures and fixture placement. Among the top factors to consider when selecting arena lighting include light levels, energy efficiency, safety, and limited light trespass.
AEON LED Luminaries are the best solution to efficient lighting needs for horse arenas. The AEON LED Flood Light Luminaire or the AEON LED High Mast Luminaire for outdoor venues provide even, comfortable lighting for events after dark. For indoor arenas, the AEON LED High Bay Luminaire or the AEON LED Sports Luminaire will hand you the best lighting options for the comfort and safety of athletes, fans, and, of course, animals.
When you choose LED arena lights for your venue, you get some of the best efficiency ratings in this class of luminaire. Delivering an efficacy of 140 Lumens/Watt, these are the most efficient fixtures on the market. With AEON’s proprietary thermal management and patented cross-ventilation system, AEON LED Luminaries are durable, long-lasting, and will continue to deliver high-quality light over the entire life of the luminaire.
The top goals, when lighting an indoor riding area are safety and effectiveness. An unsuccessful lighting setup results in unwanted shadows, glare, and inadequate lighting resulting in unsafe areas within the arena.
As important is the appropriateness of each fixture to the environment. Arena illumination must be able to handle dust, debris, and moisture common to all areas. To be sure that any arena is well-lit, venue operators must evaluate each fixture’s lumen output and performance.
Because of the size and purpose of horse arenas, proper lighting requires several fixtures. Most customers prefer long-lasting and robust LED fixtures for their horse arenas due to their low energy costs compared to light output.
LED technology is always evolving and improving. Today, AEON LEDs last ten times longer—or more—than fluorescent fixtures. The toughness and glass-free design of AEON’s LED solid-state fixtures mean no breakage. This brings costs down while also increasing safety for fixtures located over horse stalls and riding areas.
Delivering an efficacy of 140 Lumens/Watt, the AEON LED High Bay Luminaire or the AEON LED Sports Luminaire are among the most efficient fixtures on the market.
With their Quick Connect/Disconnect System and Field Changeable Lenses and Drivers, AEON LED Luminaires are designed to be easy to install. Because of their long-expected lifespan, you will rarely need to replace them. These features combined reduce the amount of time and money spent on lighting maintenance without sacrificing quality and safety.
Today’s arena-goers expect clear lighting that renders colors accurately and provides fans with a clear view. This becomes especially important when you bring in televised transmission or video recording of events.
The flicker-free lighting available with AEON LED Luminaires offers the highest color rendering index of its class (CRI>85), so any event is shown in the best, true-to-life illumination possible. This enhances viewers’ experience, and the experience and safety of riders and other performers in an arena under AEON LED Luminaires.
Riding arenas, both indoors and outdoors, have unique safety concerns that AEON LED Luminaries help with. For one, their lightweight construction means no need for rigging that may be too heavy for the soft ground of an outdoor arena. Their cool operation means no added heat to indoor venues, and, more importantly, no danger of fire in areas often heavy with hay, grass, dust, and timber.
Remote operating controls means fewer wires and less of a chance of electronic malfunction or hazard. With fire being such a considerable concern in drier parts of the country, these are essential factors to consider.
Horse arenas can often be challenging to light effectively. Bright, flickering lights can affect performance in the field and hinder rider control and safety. Furthermore, lighting needs to be effective and consistent year-round. As much as natural light is welcome, artificial light prevents shadows and makes certain light levels are appropriate for the event.
As an added benefit, good lighting means horses spend less time stuck in their stalls and more time moving, getting exercise, and improving their overall well-being. Riders, too, benefit by training in a bright and safe environment at any hour of day or night.
