Location and Facilities
Located in the Beban Park Facility (2300 Bowen Road, Nanaimo)

NEA is proud to offer a large facility with four rings and many stalls. The facility is perfect for large events, with ample space to park and maneuver  trailers that most facilities do not have, but can also cater to small events, renting out only part of the facility at a day rate or an hourly cost. NEA encourages schooling shows and clinics, encouraging Mid-Island youth to become involved in Equestrian sports at a lower cost than at other facilities.

Mission Statement
