The Singapore Turf Club Riding School is a brand new, international standard equestrian facility that is proposed as the venue for the Equestrian competition events for the Singapore Youth Olympic Games 2010.
Expected to be due for completion by end 2009, the new Riding School will occupy a 5–hectare site next to the Kranji Racecourse, the popular and only competitive horse racing facility in Singapore, where the annual Singapore Cup as well as weekly national horse racing events are held.
With its fully sheltered riding arena, the Singapore Turf Club Riding School is likely to be an ideal venue for the Equestrian Jumping event. Hosting the event at a riding school and horse-racing facility allows participants and organizers to easily utilize existing stables, equine facilities and expertise on offer.
The Singapore Turf Club Riding School arena will also have a surrounding gallery for 1,500 spectators, which will help create a sizeable and exciting crowd environment during competition day. With ample amenities such as car park space on site and a nearby MRT train station (Kranji) for public transport connectivity, the facility is well placed to host international standard equestrian events.
Situated in the North Western district of Singapore, the Singapore Turf Club Riding School will be around 20 minutes traveling time from the Youth Olympic Village by shuttle bus.
