building new arena?

I'd like to build an arena so I can set up barrels , poles, do reining patterns, showmanship, etc in. How big should it be? And what do you all use in it? Sand?

Size will be based on the area you have available.

We run all different sized arenas, so the size of the arena wouldn't matter because it'll never be the same as where we're going.

Sand is the footing of choice here. Though that may vary regionally.

I have at least 2-3 acres available that I could put it on but I dunno how big would be big enough.. 100x200? What other kinds of footing can you have for these events?

So, you have a lot of irons in the fire, Huh? A yearling you are looking to keep from being bored, some horse(not sure what) that you are asking about training in many disciplines, and now building an arena! I get your name for sure!

100 X 200 is plenty for an arena that will be used for riding, barrel racing, etc...; for footing, a sand/clay mix over a hard bottom is what most use.
