How to make a riding arena?

Postby MrsViking » Wed Nov 15, 2017 9:19 am

Do anyone know someone that have made their own riding arena, and can advice us?
We have an old tennis court at our farm, and plan to buy horses and build a private riding arena that is not too expensive.
What kind of sand, with or without fabric mixed into the sand, how many cm of each layer etc?

Hi MrsViking,
Andalucia is a large area, a closer proximity to where your Farm is located might get you more specific information.ie contacts and sources for materials.

Are you going to use it for jumping?

Thanks for your replies.
Yes, I have looked at google/youtube, but I I can only understand Nordic or English language. The climate, lack of rain etc demands different solutions I suppose, and I haven´t found that where I looked.
We have a farm 30 min west of Malaga, inland, and will have 2 horses. So it will not be used a lot.
Yes, we will do a little jumping, only for fun 50-100cm. But mostly dressage for a couple of times per week.

Here is an interesting article on building an arena https://www.horsetalk.co.nz/2012/10/18/ ... rectangle/ You could also join one of the facebook pages and ask on one of their pages.
