The World Equestrian Center management has shared plans for the construction of the World Equestrian Center Vendor Village, a permanent indoor location featuring charming storefronts, landscaping and lighting that emulate a beautiful town square. The World Equestrian Center Vendor Village is designed in the epitome of equestrian style, with a gray and black palette and décor evocative of the facility’s elegant Paddock Club and Sudden Impulse boutique. Designed in collaboration with Diverse Building Solutions, construction of the World Equestrian Center Vendor Village is expected to begin in May of 2018.
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 which will transport visitors to another place and time. Visitors will enjoy exclusive shopping, dining and day spa experiences conveniently located in the center of the horse show complex. All of these 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.

Shopping at Vendor Village
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.
Dining at Vendor Village
Visitors can 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. They can sip a latte or a breakfast smoothie or enjoy a full menu of breakfast or lunch there while they watch the stunning show horses travel back and forth on the walkway between the schooling area and the show ring. The World Equestrian Center’s free WiFi make it easy to bring a laptop or tablet to work or stay on top of your emails while enjoying the bustle of the busy horse show scene.
