The Hawker Pavilion in Fairview, Alberta, 85 x 180 feet, was built in 1986 and has been operated by Swartzy Performance Horses since 2013 (but is owned by the Grande Prairie Regional College). The arena and the barns are fairly well kept . There is no run-in in the arena, so it would be short for barrels or possibly ropings. There is also a wash bay right in the arena for the horses. There isn’t any bleachers, but there is a small patio with some chairs on it, that probably can be used for viewing. The outside paddock’s are nicely kept on the east side of the building, however, there are only a handful of stalls on the inside of the arena; most are in barns around the property, where you would have to cross over from outside.
