Horse Manège Lighting Solutions

The Professional Solution to Equestrian Manège Lighting Horse arenas and manege’s should meet the minimum requirements of CIBSE Lighting Guide 4 for equestrian sports. You will require an average light level of 100lux with a uniformity of 0.5 for flat work and jumping. Shadows should be minimized as these may distract the horses. Sodium lights should not be used due to the yellow colour which horses have difficulty in seeing. It is important that a good uniformity is achieved with minimal shadows around any show jumping fences. A good general uniformity is vital as poor lighting may distract the horses. Mounting lights directly onto the fencing at low level should be avoided due to a high level of glare for both horse and rider. We would recommend high powered SportPro LED floodlighting. LED sports floodlights cost more initially but you will save on running costs and maintenance. The LED Sportpro 300-60 is perfectly suited to a small manèges.  Just four of these will provide a class 3, 100lux level of illumination with a 0.5 uniformity of light. Don’t be fooled by cheap LED floodlights they just are not up to the job. They will illuminate a small pool of light underneath it but not push the light into the middle. This leaves a badly lit manège with terrible uniformity. Some companies are restricted to using lower quality floodlights to keep the weight down because they need to be lifted up into position on poles. These floodlights do not control the light properly as they need to be angled outwards to illuminate the arena. This leads to light spillage and glare. With our retractable lighting solution the floodlights can be serviced when retracted so no expensive access equipment is required. Our arena telescopic mast systems extends to 6m or 8m and retracts to just 2.6m. The cabling to the floodlights is installed within the mast. If required a separate hand pump can be fitted to each mast. This system can simply clamp to an existing fence post and plugs into a conventional external mains socket or petrol generator. The masts are extended by connecting the hand pump to a valve on the mast and it takes less than a minute pumping to fully extend. No more heavy lifting of lights on poles. If required they can be connected to a compressor so it can be extended automatically. To retract the mast you simply turn a valve at the base of the mast. This lighting scheme will comply to most local authorities planning requirements as it has a low visual impact, low glare, minimal light spillage and is dark skies compliant. For more information on the 6m mast view our data sheet. We can supply you a kit to install yourself or we can install if for you,  just ask for a quote.

Mounting lights directly onto the fencing at low level should be avoided due to a high level of glare for both horse and rider. We would recommend high powered HQI or LED floodlighting. Quality asymmetric HQI floodlights use better optics to control the light and at lower levels such as 6M, pushing the light  down and forwards. This keeps the light within the arena and reduces glare. They are mounted flat with no more than a 10 degree tilt. LED sports floodlights cost more initially but you will save on running costs and maintenance. The LED Sportpro 300-20 is perfectly suited to a small manèges.  Just four of these will provide a class 3, 100lux level of illumination.
