Recreation, Training Area and Upper Stables
Adjacent to the Indoor Arena is the Upper Stable block and Recreation Area. The Recreation Area is ideal for both functions and clinics. For functions, or just for a break between events, there is an area set out with tables and benches for relaxing and eating. It is equipped with BBQ facilities, fridge, bar area, and tea and coffee facilities.
There is space suitable for lectures and hands on clinics with podium and whiteboards all within the stable block area so that horses can be within easy access for hands on demonstrations and learning. (Sunninghill can also provide safe horses for use for demonstrations.) Light refreshments can also be arranged for lunches or morning and afternoon teas, or a sausage sizzle at the end of your event.
The entire area is under cover with a concrete floor. The breezeway is open at both the stable and recreation ends of the building. This allows good airflow, though can be a little breezy and/or cold in the cooler months.
For your comfort, in hot weather, the area is able to be cooled by our large outdoor air conditioning unit. During the cooler months we can provide large area gas heaters for your use for the cost of the gas cylinders.
Hire rate: $200 hire fee per day or evening (plus ground fees)
