What is the size of a competition dressage arena?


Arguing with my sister, and surprisingly there are a few different sizes on google.

  1. A competition dressage arena is 60 meters long and 20 meters wide, but this can vary depending on the particular discipline and style of riding that will be taught in that particular arena if not in competition.

    This is the “show” size, which is not always practical for everyday use and can be too narrow at times, so many riders may opt for a more open area to give their horses more room to move about freely with better balance.
