Our indoor arena at the Market Stance was opened on 19th September 2004
by Ian Stark OBE and is now available for hire by anyone in the community.
Orkney Riding Centre is a multi-sport community facility paid for with funds raised by the Orkney riding community and by generous grants from Orkney Islands Council's Community Development Fund for the New Millenium, SportScotland, Forward Scotland, Orkney Enterprise, Ness Trust and the Rotary Club.
