We were looking for a different place to hold our monthly board meeting – something unique but also fairly central in the region. Someone suggested The Kings Arena which is one mile east of Great Falls. I’ve seen the sign many times as I’ve driven by, also the buildings but I’ve never stopped.
Well, now I can say I have enjoyed the hospitality of The Kings Arena and I’ve learned a lot about this equine event center.
You can board horses (long term or also as a transient horse). If you board there you can use the indoor and outdoor arenas, a big plus in our four-season weather. Several owners and horses were using the indoor arena for exercise when we were there and one horse was getting new shoes.
The indoor arena is set up well with a concession stand, indoor rest rooms, bleachers and overhead heaters. It was rainy and cool the day we were there and I decided I had better dress warm. Well, it was cozy and warm inside!
Here’s one of my board members visiting with Marija and her horse named Dee.
The University of Great Falls rodeo team boards and works their horses at The Kings Arena. That gives them plenty of practice days and no worries about inclement weather.
The Kings Arena holds many timed equine events and they are open to the public.
I was in a hurry to get things set up for our meeting so I didn’t get any photos of the entrance – next time!
