Ohio Equestrian Retail Space Epicenter: The Winner’s Circle

CWD Sellier has saddles and tack on display and Hagyard Pharmacy has horse health products for sale. On occasion, painter Kristi Rauckus of Kristi’s Canvas is in residence with live painting and stunning equestrian and animal portraits in her booth.

R+L Arena Connector and Walkway

The connector between our large R+L Arena and the Vendor Village houses permanent Ohio equestrian retail space vendor booths on either side.  This connector and the long R+L walkway is a major thoroughfare for horses competing in the Hunter and Equitation classes that primarily take place in the R+L Arena and the Roberts Arena as well as those stabled in the adjoining barns.

This is where the artist Sarah Lockwood-Taylor’s hangs her fine linocuts and conducts a mini studio where she can be seen working on her equestrian portraits when she is in residence. Exhibitors will also recognize Voltaire’s stunning white and turquoise booth with their saddles and tack on display daily. The R+L Arena connector also houses the EQsclusive boutique, featuring fine saddles, tack, clothing and accessories.

The spacious R+L walkway runs the length of the R+L Arena with the warm up, lunging and competition spaces on one side and the giant Sponsor Wall on the other.  At the top end, visitors will find the well-stocked FarmVet mobile store and Skiffington’s Boutique featuring elegant jewelry, cashmere sweaters, handbags and accessories.

Further down the walkway, visitors will find more vendors including Dandy Products selling stall

mats, jumps and stable accessories. Halfway down the R+L Walk way is the entrance to The Custom Fox mobile tack shop with equestrian show and schooling wear, boots, helmets, outerwear and accessories.

The Sanctuary

The first level of our Sanctuary arena contains retail space on both sides of the main staircase that can accommodate 10×10, 10×20 or 10×30 sized vendor booths. There is VIP space upstairs used for event space as well.  Our weekly Cadets Horsemanship Program takes place there each Saturday morning.

The World Equestrian Center also accommodates retail mobile units of all sizes and shapes.  Our facility doors are large enough to pull them inside the facility or in fine weather we can also accommodate them outside.

New World Equestrian Center ‘Vendor Village’

Construction begins in April 2018 on the World Equestrian Center Vendor Village, a beautiful indoor environment with permanent vendor spaces featuring charming storefronts, landscaping and lighting that emulate a beautiful country town square.

World Equestrian Center vendors can secure permanent space at the Vendor Village in dimensions of 10×10, 10×20 or 10×40 with built in slat walls for displays. Vendors who lease the spaces at Vendor Village are welcome to customize their stores to reflect their own brands.

The Vendor Village is the epitome of equestrian style in stunning gray barn board siding with black trim.  The décor is evocative of the palette used in the World Equestrian Center’s elegant Paddock Club and Sudden Impulse boutique.

The World Equestrian Center Vendor Village is everything you could want at a horse show in a quaint, village square style setting.  Complete with charming storefronts, paved walkways and lighted lampposts, the World Equestrian Center transports you to another place and time.

Within the World Equestrian Center Vendor Village, exclusive shopping, dining and day spa experiences are conveniently located in the center of the horse show complex.  All of these Ohio equestrian retail space upscale amenities are within a minute’s walk of the horse show action in each of the competition arenas or within a short walk to the barns and onsite accommodations.

Vendor Village Offers Village Square Setting

Imagine a welcoming town square, with permanent stores where exhibitors and spectators alike can take advantage of shopping for equestrian clothing, tack, equipment and accessories, watch fine artists at work and see their gallery spaces; or perhaps browse through a clothing boutique with rich cashmere sweaters and fine silk scarves and jewelry.

Take a seat at one of the elegant high top tables on the deck of the High Horizons Café overlooking the Vendor Village town square. Sip a latte or a breakfast smoothie or enjoy a full menu of breakfast or lunch there while you watch the stunning show horses travel back and forth on the walkway between the schooling area and the show ring. Bring your laptop or tablet to utilize the free World Equestrian Center WiFi as you enjoy the bustle of the busy horse show scene.

World Equestrian Center visitors to the Vendor Village can enjoy a single treatment or day of pampering at The Cutting Room Aveda Day Spa.  Step away from the horse show hustle and bustle to revel in the soothing atmosphere of the day spa – with quiet music, air transfused with essential oils and a complete listing of spa services including massages, manicures and pedicures, skin treatments and haircuts / coloring. Whether visitors are at World Equestrian Center competing or spectating, they’ll be relaxed, rejuvenated and looking their best after a trip to The Cutting Room.
