Knopp is building a team of leaders committed to keeping IDADevelopment successful while being generous to their clients, big or small. “They’re here for a career,” said Knopp. “They bleed IDA; they’re so connected, so rooted in the community. And that’s important to me and to our clients.” IDA Development has become the go-to company with an unmatched portfolio of equestrian services. Their latest venture, IDA Steel, focuses on building prefabricated metal horse barns, buildings, and covered steel riding arenas designed to the client’s specifications and built in virtually any dimension. A metal riding arena is the modern solution for covered riding arenas because of the strength and efficiency steel offers. IDA Steel designs the steel riding arena according to your discipline or use, meaning your interior layout will be designed to accommodate the activities of your choosing.

Each metal stable is sturdy and well-made with only high-quality materials. Traditional barns require constant maintenance and can decay over time. IDA Steel barns are manufactured with triple-galvanized steel to ensure their strength and extend the life of your equestrian structure. The barn is also engineered to withstand the high winds, and heavy rains Florida is known for, allowing practice time, rain or shine. As always, IDA listens to their clients and puts their expertise to work, making it happen, whether it’s a barn, an arena, or giving back.
