Equestrian (horse) sports stadia/complexes

I'm new to the forum. I'm interested in facilities created for equestrian (horse) sports.

The Olympics feature three equestrian sports regulated by the FEI (horse sports' governing body): Showjumping, Dressage and Eventing.

The FEI also back a World Equestrian Games for these three sports, in addition to Carriage Driving, Vaulting, Para-dressage, Reining and Endurance.

The World Games have been held since 1990:
1990 Stockholm SWE (featuring Olympic stadium)
1994 The Hauge NED
1998 Rome ITA
2002 Jerez ESP
2006 Aachen GER
2010 Kentucky USA
2014 Caen/Normandy FRA

In addition to this, each sport will have it's own World and often continental championship when it isn't in an Olympic Games or FEI World Games that particular year.

I'm trying to create a scrapbook of equestrian sports facilities around the world - Olympic, FEI World Games or other international-standard arena/facilities.

Does anyone have any images or interesting links about such facilities. I will post a few images I have in due couse.

Thanks

Budapest, Kincsem Park



Old grandstand (built in 1925):


New grandstand (built in 2005):








Kincsem (1874-1887) was the most successful Thoroughbred race horse ever, having won 55 races for 55 starts. She is a national icon in Hungary. The Hungarian word Kincsem means My Precious or My Treasure.

I only know it exists from watching rugby, but the Royal Dublin Society Arena in Ballsbridge, Dublin has hosted the Dublin Horse Show since 1868 (Leinster Rugby moved in from their nearby Donnybrook ground in 2005, leading to ground improvements taking place):

grimshaw architects selected to redevelop curragh racecourse

Quote:
grimshaw architects has been selected to develop plans for the curragh horse racecourse in ireland. working alongside newenham mulligan & associates, the proposal was chosen ahead of 100 other leading practices, following an international competition. the masterplan for the site updates the existing complex – providing a new grandstand – while simultaneously respecting the surrounding landscape. alongside racing and training facilities, the prestigious venue showcases some of the best thoroughbred racehorses from around the world.

celebrating the unique topography of the curragh plains, the grandstand retains and builds upon the intimate characteristics associated with the site. the redevelopment also involves the upgrading of public amenities, ensuring a pleasant and comfortable atmosphere for visitors throughout the year.

‘the master plan provides an opportunity to review the site and the wider offer in a way that cherishes its existing qualities but also enables the curragh to meet the demands of the future and continue to compete at an international level,’ explained grimshaw partner kirsten lees. ‘the integration of the new grandstand into this beautiful setting will be carefully and sensitively handled to establish a connection and balance between the natural and the man-made.’
