Welcome to the second edition of Stable Style featuring Riverlands Equestrian Facility. This amazing facility was designed by GH2 Gralla Equine Architects, they provided these photos taken by Ivan Hunter Photography. The Riverlands is a private equestrian facility that focuses on the breeding & training of Dressage horses.

Stable: Riverlands Equestrian Facility

Architect: GH2 Gralla Equine Architects

Location: Pemberton, British Columbia, Canada

Describe the facility in one word: Breathtaking

The stables are located north of Vancouver in the beautiful Pemberton Valley, with stunning views to Mount Currie and Face Mountain. The equestrian facilities include a 16-stall Main Barn, an indoor Training Barn with a 100′ x 260′ riding area, a Hay Barn, an Equipment Barn, and a 3-stall Quarantine/Foaling Barn. Other amenities at this world-class facility include a covered round pen and covered compartmental exerciser, and daily turnout paddocks for the mares and foals, each with loafing sheds and automatic waterers. An exterior deck off of the Training Barn overlooks an outdoor training ring and grass dressage ring.

A detailed look at the plans Gralla created for this project.

An awesome shot of the barns & property, it really captures the surrounding mountains well. I like how the barn looks very modern with a lot of clean lines.

The scenery around the barn the powerful mountains in the background & freshly baled hay.

The indoor arena: It’s spacious & well constructed to allow plenty of natural light to come through.

Stepping further into the barn, you enter the lounge where you can view the indoor arena quite comfortably.

Another shot of inside the spacious & magnificent lounge.

The Main Barn, with its heavy timber construction, vaulted wood ceilings and European-style stall systems, provides an inspiring and healthy environment for both horses and people. Natural ventilation methods and skylights allow for great airflow and natural daylight to enter and circulate throughout the barn. The Main Barn also features two wash areas with solarium units, two tack-up areas, two large fully appointed tack rooms, a feed room, a laundry, a veterinary area, vet lab, and a spacious farrier area.

I hope you enjoyed this tour as much as I have, thank you again GH2 Gralla Equine Architects for providing photos & allowing Horses & Heels to feature your gorgeous work.

    This place is absolutely beautiful!! I can so appreciate this because my HB is an architect and I agree somewhat modern with clean lines. My fave is the indoor arena with that huge lounge that allows you to look into the arena.
