The Bullpen is an agricultural arena located within Thorlakson Feedyards Inc., near Airdrie, AB. The arena is approximately 200 ft long and 80 ft wide. Recently, we added an extra 30 feet to the south side, adding an extra 6,600 sq ft of standing area. We can accommodate various equestrian sports including; team penning, ranch sorting, cutting, working cow, reining, barrel racing and more.
There are indoor stalls, as well as we are capable of creating many indoor and outdoor temporary stalls for events.
Our lobby and kitchen creates a warm and welcoming environment between rides, and at your request we can provide a cook who makes home-made meals and snacks during your event.
