Facilities at Forest Edge Arena 

Forest Edge Arena is a equestrian competition centre set in the heart of Breckland. The 77x35m. indoor arena is used for a wide variety of equestrian uses, including affiliated and unaffiliated show jumping, dressage, showing and Pony Club activities. A varied programme of mounted and unmounted clinics, lectures and workshops for all ages and abilities, are planned for the coming year.

Our arenas have ANDREWS BOWEN PRO-WAX.  THIS SURFACE IS THE BEST AVAILABLE AND IS USED AT THE HORSE OF THE YEAR SHOW, N IRELAND INTERNATIONAL HORSE SHOW, THE BRITISH OPEN SHOWJUMPING CHAMPIONSHIPS AND MANY OTHER PRESTIGIOUS CENTRES.  The benefits of changing to this surface will be a consistant, secure, dust-free surface, supporting the horses natural movement and reducing repetative strain injury.  It will allow us to hold a greater variety and higher standard of competitions.
