In 1871, a new type of entertainment appeared in Tyumen – the hippodrome. "Races, a racetrack, a sweepstake," an enthusiastic contemporary wrote on the pages of the Siberian Trade Newspaper, "this is one of the evils of the day of Tyumen, which everyone is interested in; not only the rich class of our city is interested in races, but also the poor, even those who are unable to devote 30-50 kopecks from their meager budget to get to the racetrack; these amateurs cling to the birches near the lying grove, climb the fence that limits the circle, so, find different ways to look at the race with at least one eye ..." [The fourth day of the races in Tyumen // Siberian Trade Newspaper. 1897. No. 5. p. 2]. Prizes for the races were provided by officials and merchants. So, on July 20, 1897, prizes were provided by I.A. Poklevsky-Kozell, Irkutsk police officer N.M. Peiker and K.L. Vakhter. The main prize was estimated at 180 rubles.
At the beginning of the twentieth century, the racetrack of the Tyumen Horse Breeding Society, located outside the city on leased land, continued to remain a permanent place of spectacles and amusements of citizens.
During the Civil War, the hippodrome was closed. It reopened only in July 1921. Now he was subordinate to various agricultural bodies, used to test collective farm trotters.
During the Great Patriotic War, the hippodrome also did not work. And in the post-war years, painstaking work on the restoration of rocks began again. Soon the hippodrome became a favorite place of the townspeople again.
By 1984, wooden buildings and structures had become unsuitable for further maintenance and testing of horses. Repairs have begun. New stables, a pavilion with bleachers, four arched warehouses were built, levades, dressage and show jumping fields, a riding arena, a pond for bathing horses were laid, paved roads and entrances were equipped, a running track was put into operation. Since the 1990s, the activity of the Tyumen Hippodrome has revived again.
