Very impressive rings and main ring. Staff doesn't return phone messeges, ... ever... Very disheartening, as I had called regarding lost and found items, golf cart rental, etc. and no call back. Great that they are across the street from Dover Saddlery!

We were there for the USPC National Championships. Things were well run, well kept and it is easy to get around to the various arenas, several of which are covered. A They also have a wonderful coliseum.

We traveled here for the United States Pony Club East Coast Championships. The facility was very well maintained and comfortable, and supportive of this fantastic organization. Thank you for hosting this event, and we will be back!
