Central Nebraska's Finest Equine Facility
This facility is part of the Custer County Fairgrounds, which covers 49 acres, has 22 buildings and is home to one of the largest County Fairs in Nebraska.
Nestled on the east edge of Broken Bow is an exceptional equine facility that will rival any in the midwest. Whether you're a visitor to Broken Bow a member of 4H, AQHA, CHAN cutting (to mention just a few) or just love horses this facility is a must see.
The arena was originally built to be part of a Quarter horse racing complex. Horses from all over the country raced there for 18 years, drawing from 400 to 500 horses a weekend. By 1990 the number of horses racing had dropped so much it was no longer feasible to continue the races. In the early 90's the focus shifted from a racing facility to a resource for all types of horse events. It has been a boon for the community ever since.
The Facility Is Certified By The American Quarter Horse Association
The Broken Bow Equine Facility hosts AQHA shows, 4D Barrel Futurity and USTRC team ropings. Cuttings draw people from as many as 12 states.
Among the most popular events hosted include team roping, cuttings, barrel racing, clinics, reinings, and horse shows.
