South Point Adding Covered Outdoor Arena to Facility

The South Point Hotel, Casino & Spa will soon add a covered outdoor arena to its equestrian center in Las Vegas, Nevada. It will be called the Farnam Arena.

Officials for the venue said the new covered arena is set to open at the end of September. It is being built through a partnership with Farnam.

“We are so excited to be partnering with Farnam to bring this new arena to life,” South Point Arena and Equestrian Center General Manager Steve Stallworth said in a statement. “Farnam Arena gives us the opportunity to host new events and expand the events we know and love. Farnam has always been a great supporter of South Point, and we couldn’t think of anyone better for this partnership.”

The South Point is the home of several large horse shows in the Western performance horse industry, including National Reined Cow Horse Association (NRCHA) premier events, large reinings like the High Roller Reining Classic and The Run For A Million and big cuttings like the Pacific Coast Cutting Horse Association’s Derby & Futurity shows.

The covered arena will be the South Point’s fourth and largest competition venue in the equestrian complex at 300 by 135 feet, which comes in at more than 40,000 square feet. 

The facility currently has a number of indoor arenas, including the 4,600-seat show arena, and a stall area that are attached to the casino.

Officials say the multimillion-dollar outdoor arena project, located on the west side of the property adjacent to the Interstate 15 freeway, will allow the property to host larger events than ever before.

“Farnam has a lasting partnership with South Point Arena and Equestrian Center and we are excited for what is to come at the new Farnam Arena,” stated Stash Easton, Director of Marketing for Central Garden & Pet, Equine Marketing at Farnam.
