LAS VEGAS (FOX5) Add cowboys to the cast of characters on Fremont Street in downtown Las Vegas. The Plaza Hotel & Casino opened Core Arena, “the first and only permanent outdoor equestrian center in downtown Las Vegas” Tuesday morning.

Mayor Carolyn Goodman and rodeo pro Matt Shiozawa were on hand for the ribbon cutting ceremony during the arena’s grand opening. Horses, cowgirls and cowboys joined them.

“The Core Arena will feature two outdoor arenas for roping practice and exercise during the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo. “After NFR concludes, the Plaza’s equestrian center will become the city’s newest outdoor event venue diversifying the downtown experience and attracting more business and people to downtown Las Vegas year-round,” an arena spokesperson said.
