Arenas and Footing

Horse arenas and their related footing are an important part of any horse facility. Riders spend a lot of time in the ring practicing new skills in the saddle, bonding with groundwork, and getting ready for horse shows. And if a farm owner is lucky, he or she will have an indoor arena (if living in a state with bad weather), along with outdoor arenas. They foundation of any great horse arena is obviously the footing. Determining the perfect foundation for the disciplines being ridden on the farm and maintaining that foundation is key to keeping horses sounds and healthy.
