i am putting in a 100x200 covered arena and I want some sort of geo textile footing. I have called and talked to tons of different companies that manufacture and over the last couple weeks I have done so much research on sand that I am now an expert on sand sieves and content that I am driving myself mad. I have also talked to so many people that HATE their footing and I am getting so much anxiety over making a decision.
Anyone have any advice??
A little about my barn and wants: We have mostly jumpers and the majority competing 1.30- GP. I have 20 horses/students in full training so on most days I’d have 5-20 horses in the ring (we have another ring and a large field that we ride in).
I wanted to add a textile because I want to add some structure to the sand. Sand is great when it’s freshly dragged, but I feel like it becomes a little too loose. I also don’t want my ring to be hard as a rock with no horizontal give.
Any advice? Anyone love their ring and what they did? We will be installing sprinklers, most likely the gun ones.
