My review of South Point Arena and Equestrian Center, Las Vegas, Nevada
It’s two in the morning and you are still on the road. You have a horse show to compete in later this afternoon. You can hear your horse shifting impatiently in the trailer behind your truck. He is ready to get out of the rig and into his stall for a little bit of shut eye.
Wouldn’t it be nice if you could pull up to your hotel, have someone check you into the hotel and check your horse into the barn at the same time? Your luggage would be delivered to your hotel room while you unload and settle your horse into a climate controlled box stall. And if you are someone like Joe Montana your horse can stay in one of the VIP stalls. Welcome to South Point in Las Vegas, Nevada, a hotel for horse and rider.
South Point Arena and Equestrian Center
If you compete in equestrian events, you’ve probably heard of South Point Arena and Equestrian Center in Las Vegas, Nevada. If you are a gambler, or a Las Vegas VIP, you might be familiar with the term “RFB” room, food and beverage. South Point Hotel Casino and Spa takes RFBs to the next level. With the South Point Arena and Equestrian Center, the hotel offers room, food and beverage for hotel guests and their horses. Such a simple idea, but a concept that was sorely lacking 25 years ago for South Point Hotel and Equestrian Center co-owner Paula Gaughan.
The South Point Arena and Equestrian Center offers 1,200 climate-controlled box stalls, 400 stalls in Barn A and 800 stalls in Barn B. They provide 24 hour survellance, hot and cold running water, 30 wash racks, barn concierge service, a competition arena, vet clinic, farrier service and The Trading Post. The Trading Post sells everything from beer to hay to truck tires.
