Freeman Arena is a 200 x 350 foot, covered arena devoted to equine teaching, Extension programs, horse shows, rodeos, cutting contests, and many other activities as a part of the 65-acre Equestrian Center.
The entire tract of land was approved by The Texas A&M University System Board of Regents for development into an equestrian center in the early 1970s. The Arena was established in 1977, and bleachers and roofing were added in 1985.
The arena was named for, and formally dedicated to, Mr. N.W. “Dick” Freeman, a long-time friend and supporter of the Texas A&M equine sciences program and youth horse programs in the state of Texas. Mr. Freeman was a rancher and a businessman as well as president of the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo. The university continues to use the arena for undergraduate and graduate classwork in horse training, judging, horse shows, and rodeos.
