WAYNE COUNTY, OH, Jan. 16, 2021 — The Board of the Wayne County Commissioners (Board) are accepting proposals for the lease of an approximately 10-acre horse arena complex located at 3750 Secrest Rd., Wooster, Ohio, 44691.

The complex includes:

  • Approximately 9 acres of pasture divided into three sections.

  • A 44 x 80-foot handicap accessible stable with 9-stalls, horse washing station, bathroom, kitchen, and an electrically heated office.

  • A 72 x 104-foot riding arena with access doors on all four sides, including gates, equipment storage area, viewing, and parking area.

“In the recent past, these buildings have been used to provide therapeutic riding services,” said Wayne County Administrator Patrick Herron. “It would be the commissioners' hope that something similar can take place once again, but we are open to all proposals at this time.”


The Board intends that the complex be used, maintained, and improved at the cost of the leasee with the potential of financial return.


All proposals should identify the premises’ intended use, lease terms, renewal periods, and the amount of proposed rent.


Proposals must be received by 2 p.m., local time, on Tuesday, Feb. 23, at the following address:
