After successfully competing and training in the United States, professional rider Christan Trainor made the journey back to Australia where she has since established Glenhill Sporthorses. Glenhill is a boutique training and breeding facility in the Southern Highlands of New South Wales where they focus on quality and bringing out the best in each horse.
With a passion for horses that started in 2001, Abe Graham grew up spending his weekends at campdrafts, working his way through mini, junior and juvenile drafts in Central Queensland. At just 23 years old Abe has already started his own training facility west of Rockhampton and currently has over 20 horses in training.
Being based in New South Wales, Australia we’re no strangers to the heat and understand that quality sheds need to be built for all weather conditions. Dressage arenas are no different. One of the most common things we hear from clients that require dressage arenas is that they need to be able to train all year round, so they need something that will be suitable on a hot summer’s day as well as the middle of winter.
Filling the dreams of many avid riders is the ownership, one day, of an arena. And whereas the fundamentals of building a dressage arena are the same as any horse arena there are a few extra considerations to consider, which we will cover in this article.
