Equine Centre/Riding Arena

Lakeland College's Equine Centre, better known as the Riding Arena, is primarily for student class and club activities.

But it's also a community facility that has been the stage for events as varied as 4-H light horse club activities and professional bull riding.

For the horse enthusiast, we offer a a riding arena membership. During open riding times, you can drop in and ride during inclement weather.

Check out the drop downs below the slide show for information about rental rates, how to book the facility and riding arena memberships.

There's a equine centre calendar that shows when the facility is booked and when it is available.
