The second riding hall not to be built yet13.08.2018 Local News
A few years after this replacement, Reitzentrum AG registered a zoning amendment with the municipality because they wanted to build a second riding arena, one that would also be suitable for competitions. At the municipal assembly in December 2016, the sovereign spoke out in favour of the zoning change at the planned Ebnit site. The approval of this was also accompanied by a claim that the community of Saanen does not provide financial support for the new building.
Now the Reitzentrum representative Marcel Bach informed that the new hall will not be built just yet: “We have put the construction project back”. At the moment, things are working well in the existing facility and the space required by its users is sufficient. Furthermore, there is no interest at the moment to be active in international horse competitions. There are already many competitions and to position themselves in this sector would be very difficult, he says.
