The Centro Hípico del Sur equestrian centre in Buzanada will be home to the Canarian show jumping championship this coming weekend 17-19 August, and again the following weekend, the 24-26th with another national show jumping championship. Entry is free and it all starts at 4pm.
Arona Ayuntamiento says that the Centro Hípico del Sur is one of the pioneers of equestrianism in the Canaries, having started in 1990. Currently, it organizes four competitions a year at a high level, with riders from throughout the islands competing alongside those from the mainland.
The centre occupies some 12 acres divided into three working and two competition courses, a racetrack and ample external and internal spaces. It complies with all environmental and quality regulations, and is supervised by Seprona, the environmental and animal welfare division of the Guardia Civil.
