First I want to say I'm sorry if this is in the wrong section, I'm new to the website. So I'm hoping in the next 6 months - a year I will be able to start my horse Jinxx under saddle. Only thing is I don't really have an arena to use. I have a round pen, but I don't think it is big enough to really do much riding in. My parents own the property next to us and the lady who rents it says I'm welcome to use the front "arena." Nice offer an all, but the footing is very rocky and the edges near the fence are washed away, so I don't feel quite comfortable using it.
So other than these options I don't really have any were enclosed to ride in. So I was wondering if anyone had any ideas as what to do when it comes time to start riding him. As of right now I don't have a job, (and very very little money to work with) but hopefully will be getting a job soon so I might be able to work with something.
