For the first time in over 20 years, Stewardson is once again home to a horse arena. The arena held its first event on August 27th, and the owners of the facility have big plans for its future.
Erika Corbin is a co-owner of the Tom Vonderheide Arena in Stewardson. She says the facility is named after the father of her other co-owner Doug Vonderheide, who was a well-known figure in the community.
Corbin says they already are planning big events to come to the arena next year.
Corbin says bringing a horse arena back to Stewardson will bring people and dollars back to the community. She says the local Lion’s Club is building a concession stand for their events plus other events to come to arena, and that should be completed for next year.
