GENERAL ARENA SETUP (print)

50'

 

 

Your arena can be any safe flat space free of hazards and obstructions. It should have footing that is appropriate for the discipline you are competing in. 

 

The show footprint is the actual area where you will be conducting your show. 

There are currently  three sizes of show footprints that are commonly used by AYHC. Some special shows or events such as dressage tests or Sponsored shows will require other specifications.  If you have an arena, track, or other flat area that is larger than the show footprint, just set letters out according to our dimensions. 

 

You can print download and print a set of letters by clicking here. 

 

Letters can be attached to cones, buckets, or anything else that is not fixed, or held fast to the ground. They must be set up in any way that you feel is safe for your horse. They should be set up facing the camera.
