Venue

Alpaca 2018 will be held at Christchurch RDA Building, Canterbury Show Grounds, Canterbury 37449129.jpg

This venue officially opened on 11th of March 2004.  In 2007 many hours were spent researching different types of surfaces for indoor arenas.   They finally decided on a combination of sand and clay. 

The clear span area is 40m by 80m with a sand/clay mixture surface.  A viewing area, toilets, seminar room and office are located on the 10m wide concrete pad along the east side.  The eave height is 6m with a sloping safety wall around the riding area.  With the addition of lighting to extend the hours of use and ventilators to help increase the air flow inside.
