i have a large indoor riding arena 275ftx 110ftx42ft tall. i have just begun research on what type of watering system i need. i have a river sand composite on the floor of my arena and the roof it 42 feet tall with a steep pitch. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

I don't understand. What's the purpose of the sprinkler system? Is this a sprinkler system for fire-control? Or are you just trying to get the ground wet once in a while?

Something like dust control, I imagine. You want a certain amount of moisture content in the dirt in the arena. It will take a sprinkler capable of at least a 55-foot throw to reach the center of the arena from the edge.
