College facilities upgraded again
The new arena is now complete
A new arena has added to the facilities at a Yorkshire venue.

Bishop Burton College has added a new outdoor arena to its facilities. This will be used for the show jumping competitions during this summer’s FEI European Pony Championships, which the college is hosting. The existing outdoor arena is also being extended by 12 metres and resurfaced before the championships from 27 July-1 August.
Equine director Kim Knightley said: "This will allow us to hold many more competitions in the future. We’re looking at hosting arena polo and organising affiliated show jumping throughout the summer."
The new 50x90m arena will have terraced seating for 1,000 and a Martin Collins Ecotrack surface.
