What They’re Saying

“When this facility became available for horse shows we decided to make the move to Cedar Rapids because the facility is so wonderful and it's made our show grow into a large three day show attracting visitors from about five or six different states. You can't ask for a nicer staff to work with. They're very accommodating. Anything we need done or changed, it's done almost immediately.”

Mark WeberGreat River Saddlebred Association

“We wanted to take the opportunity to thank you for your hospitality in providing such a well organized and "equine friendly" facility at the Kirkwood College. As a seasoned halter trainer in this industry, my only negative aspect to offer would be that the facility is 850 miles from our ranch. Even though it is a long haul to frequent your facility, we feel rewarded once we get there and will continue to make the trip until other facilities can meet your standards.”

Ted and Darlene TurnerTurner Ranch, Inc.

“It was a real pleasure for me to conduct a clinic weekend at the Iowa Equestrian Center. It was VERY comfortable to work in and the audience was great too! Warm, beautiful setting with natural lighting, great sound system, dust free, and a great accommodating staff!”

Lynn Palm

“Very nice facility... Staff very professional and helpful, they made us feel like they wanted us there.”
