If you've taken all the little steps to make your arena a little bit brighter this year there is one BIG thing that you have to do to make it all worth while.... Make sure the footing is level!
Take a look at the fresh surface you've spent your time making beautiful and check out how level the surface is. We're not talking about depth here, we're talking about how even is your playing field? Does it have deep spots and hard spots? Is the fresh footing well turned and useable? Do you have mounds of dirt where the drag had left the arena? If you've done your homework NONE of these issues should exist.
If you're like us you can't wait to get on the first horse and check out the feel of the footing. By following the simple steps we've posted the past few weeks you'll find that you not only were able to save a few dollars, but you also gave your riding a fresh start for the season. Your horse might have a bit more suspension, slide, or jump so hang on and enjoy that fresh arena feel!
