Our Facilities

We have an extensive range of competition facilities that are used throughout the year.

All our arenas have been recently refurbished with Equestrian Surfaces non waxed economy track. Each arena has its own individual water sprinkler system, to keep the arena surface at its best. Our arenas are also  graded regularly, with a top of the range Arenamate grading machine – so our clients get the perfect ride every time.

We have a brand new PA and Music System fitted throughout the centre, as well as lots of new and updated equipment.

Please note we have a strict Poo picking policy in place with plenty of wheel barrows and dung beetle poop scoops available.

CCTV is fitted extensively at REC for security reasons.

Dogs are allowed but must be kept on leads at all times. Any droppings must be collected and put in the bins provided. Any dog compromising health or safety must vacate the arena/horse/public areas immediately.
