Our arena, officially opened in December 2017, gives us an all-weather, even surface for our riding sessions and can also be used for carriage driving. It is slightly larger than the standard 20m x 40m. The arena has a Equestrian Surfaces ‘Sound Track’ surface, which offers a consistent, safe and reliable surface for multiple disciplines with optimum cushioning and stability. There is additional covered space to the side accommodating six individual horse stalls, the arena viewing gallery and our community room which also houses a kitchen, and toilets.
Our indoor arena is available for private bookings when not being used by RDA. A variety of poles, blocks and cones are also available for use in the indoor arena. We have ample hard surfaced parking with exterior lighting. The arena is best suited to a maximum of four horses, or six small ponies. Access to toilets, & hand washing facilities and use of the kitchen is also available.
What does it cost?
We suggest a minimum donation of £25 per hour, however, if you would like to make a larger donation then this is always welcome. All funds raised go directly to support our riding and carriage driving programmes, the care of horses, and the upkeep of the arena and facilities.
There is no cancellation fee, provided that you notify us as soon as possible so that we can offer the arena to other potential users. We are happy to discuss regular, repeat bookings and bookings for non-riding use.
