There are grassed banks overlooking the outdoor arena, and both arenas could accommodate temporary grandstand seating (the fire exits and alarm systems within the indoor arena complex are designed around a seating capacity in excess of 1000). with the addition of extra tiered seating the centre can take large events. We can take up to 900 with our own seating and still have 20m x 60m dressage arena and flat seating only 3 rows deep.
