WELLINGTON, Florida, Dec. 12–The first load of coral-colored footing has been placed in the arenas at the Global Dressage Festival grounds that are under construction to be ready for the Florida winter circuit.

Four arena areas are being built on the former Palm Beach Polo Stadium fields–the main arena of 150 by 280 ft. (46x85m) an adjoining arena 135 ft. x 280 ft. (41x85m),  an arena measuring 260 x 325 ft. (80x100m) and an area measuring 150 x 260 ft. (46x80m) for a covered arena.

The arenas are being built by Equestrian Services International, a company owned by Bart Poels of Belgium and Brett Raflowitz of Palm City, Florida. The company installed all 12 arenas at the Palm Beach International Equestrian Center and at the Devon Horse Show grounds in Pennsylvania as well as many other show grounds and private facilities.
