Decide type of arena you want
1.) What is the actual size of your arena?
Reason: Not all companies use the inside dimensions of the horse arena size. Some companies use the outside dimensions of the roping arena layout, including the roping boxes or return alley
2.) Are the boxes inside or outside of the roping arena's layout?
Reason: If the boxes are on the inside of the roping arena's layout this will shorten the run.
3.) How heavy, or how tall and long are the rodeo equipment panels?
Reason: Make sure you are comparing rodeo equipment items accurately. When asking you can question weight, or you can compare gauge. Know that the higher the number on the gauge the lighter the rodeo equipment panel will be.
4.) Know the difference between painted steel, powder coated steel, and galvanized steel rodeo equipment.
5.) Ask about the steer lead up to the chute and what comes with the roping arena layout packages.
Reason: Most standard roping arena layout packages come with panels behind the roping chute. Chute extensions have butt bars and sheet metal sides to keep cattle contained and ready for the next run.
6.) Do posts come with the roping arena layout packages or will you need to provide them?
Reason: You cannot set up long runs of fence and keep them from falling over without some sort of support. No arena should ever be set up without setting rodeo equipment posts. To not put posts in your arena is dangerous for spectators and livestock.
7.) Details of delivery and setup.
Reason: You need to know what method the company you purchased your arena from will be delivering ie- 18 Wheeler, gooseneck, or common carrier, so you can know if they have the ability to get the rodeo equipment into your property.
8.) Who is responsible for unloading the truck?
Reason: If it is your responsibility then you need to be prepared with help and rodeo equipment to unload.
