South sector. Stables area.
During the Games of the XXV Olympiad,
the dressage and the three-day event
endurance test were held at El Montanyà
Equestrian Centre. The centre was also
used for training and stabling the horses
participating in the three-day event.
The Equestrian Centre is in the Montanyà
Estate located in the district of Osona,
between the towns of Seva and El Brull.
The estate contains a golf course, a
private equestrian club and their
corresponding service areas. It covers
more than 200 hectares and has all the
necessary facilities for each phase of this
event. The International Equestrian
Three-day Event, part of the
Competitions'91 programme, was held at
the centre from 27 to 30 June 1991.
The cost of increasing the number of
permanent boxes and refurbishing them,
the course layout, the improvements
made to the surrounding area and
accesses to the facility as well as the
Olympic adaptation of the centre were all
financed by COOB'92.
