LA DEHESA MONTENMEDIO WILL HAVE THE WORLD'S LARGEST INDOOR REMOVABLE ARENA
The director of the Sunshine Tour, Teresa Blázquez, pointed out that the new track, which has involved an investment of 750,000 euros and will be inaugurated in January, "is the icing on the cake for the Dehesa Montenmedio".
The Dehesa Montenmedio will have the world's largest detachable indoor arena for equestrian jumping competitions, an attraction that will be added to the more than twenty grass and sand competition arenas at Europe's largest equestrian facility.
The new indoor arena, which has required an investment of 750,000 euros and will be ready in November, but will not be inaugurated until the competitions in January, will allow competitions to be held when the weather conditions are not favourable and also offers great versatility and functionality due to its dismountable nature.
It is 90 metres long and 45 metres wide, for a total surface area of 5,850 square metres, and has a two-layer roof of polyester textile membrane coated in PVC with high-frequency welded Keder. The two layers form an air chamber that provides high thermal insulation and improved wind resistance.
The director of the Sunshine Tour, Teresa Blázquez, pointed out that "the new track is the icing on the cake for the Dehesa Montenmedio. We have made a firm commitment to it, because it means closing the circle completely".
Blázquez understands that "one of the keys to the success of the Sunshine Tour is that when in the rest of the world it is impossible to compete on outdoor tracks due to the climate, we are the Oasis of Europe. Everyone knows that with us they are guaranteed to be able to compete outdoors, which is essential for young horses. Inexperienced horses come to the circuit and leave Montenmedio in good shape. Now with the new indoor arena we give them the possibility to alternate the indoor arena with the others".
The President of the Spanish Equestrian Federation, Javier Revuelta, checked first-hand the execution of the project during the celebration of the Spanish Show Jumping Championships in the Dehesa Montenmedio and was very satisfied that Spanish equestrian sport has a new facility of this magnitude and scope, which represents a definitive boost for the Circuit to establish itself among the world elite of equestrian facilities.
