New spectacular facility in Ohio bids to become the greatest

A spectacular new equestrian facility in Southwest Ohio in the US is bidding to become one of the world’s premier equestrian sport venues.

Plans for the expansion of the World Equestrian Center (WEC) have been unveiled by management, with the former site of the Roberts Arena aiming to be the largest, state of the art indoor/outdoor equestrian sports venue in the world.

Construction crews have broken ground on the new 150′ x 300′ indoor arena which will incorporate premiere footing, grandstand seating and private suites with concierge service. Outdoor complex facilities in development include six all-weather competition arenas as well as grass Grand Prix and Derby fields.

A 25-stall on site veterinary clinic managed by Dr. Derek McFadden, DVM will provide diagnostics, emergency treatment and rehabilitative therapy to horses competing at the venue.

More than 60% of the facility’s 600-plus stable barns are connected to the arenas by enclosed walkways.
