Portmore Equestrian Centre
Chantal and Rafael Suarez would like to welcome you to Portmore Equestrian Centre. The first indoor arena at Portmore was launched in 2002 and since then new facilities have been added each year including internationally sized indoor and outdoor arenas.
Chantal has competed across the United Kingdom in show jumping and is in charge of all competitions and schedules on a day to day basis at the centre.
Rafael is a talented international course designer who makes use of his specialised skills each week at Portmore, to the delight of many competitors. Rafael also travels to many championship venues throughout the UK and Ireland. His courses are designed to educate and test the skills of each horse and rider combination in keeping with their current level of ability.
Portmore Equestrian Centre houses an international arena with a first class surface to match. The arena is 70m x 32m and has an Andrew Bowen Wax fibre surface as used in Northern Ireland’s International Horse Show.
“Portmore Equestrian Centre is the Best Arena in Ireland” Sinead Kennedy
Portmore is a family run business, however there are lots of other people in our team working very hard behind the scenes to make it the place it is today.
Our restaurant and bar are open for all shows, with renovations and improvements continually being made to the premises to make them suit the needs of our customers better.
We have indoor and outdoor warm up arenas so you have the choice of arena type to suit your horses’ final preparation before competing, and also the choice to stay dry whatever the weather.
We have a number of stables onsite beside the warm up arena where horses can be stabled during shows, please speak to us if you would like to avail of this facility.restaurant-slider
We also have a raised viewing gallery to allow spectators see more of the action, and it can get very busy during our two and three day championship shows.
Our International arena is also available for hourly hire, with a full set of international show jumps included in our hire prices. Rates are dependant on requirement for lighting, please phone us for pricing and availability.
