International Outdoor Arena


International Indoor Arena


Our arenas provide an excellent teaching environment for students, where you can practice their riding skills as well as getting hands-on experience.

Indoor arenas

The main international standard Hartpury Arena features a 70m x 40m riding surface which has seating for 600 spectators, hospitality boxes that double up as classrooms and a restaurant and bar.

A further three indoor arenas (60m x 25m, 60m x 21m, and 25m x 35m) can also be found on campus.

Outdoor arenas

The international outdoor arena is 80m x 60m with an adjacent 60m x 30m warm-up arena, with attractive white rails and a grass bank ideal for spectators. There’s also plenty of space around the arena for trade stands and exhibitors.

All of our arenas are surfaced by Andrews Bowen.

International events

Our arenas host major international events and local and regional competitions, which students are fully involved in.

Our three international equine events held every year are Hartpury International Festival of Dressage, Five Star International Hartpury Horse Trials and the Hartpury Showjumping Spectacular. These events attract competitors, sponsors and spectators from across the globe.

These events are fantastic for our students as they can make valuable connections, as well as have the opportunity to volunteer and gain invaluable experience. If you’re a competitive rider, you could also showcase your talent as an athlete.
