The Arena attracts in the region of 10,000 competing horses each year, with many more non-competing riders taking part in camps and training days.

Competitions are held throughout the year that are affiliated to the governing bodies of British Eventing, British Showjumping and British Dressage. There are also numerous unaffiliated competitions across each discipline, along with many clinics and lecture demonstrations taken by leading trainers and riders.
