Footing for a "Arena"
I currently have a dirt sacrifice paddock that I also use as a training area. I'm attempting to upgrade it as much as possible with minimal money input (more important horse upgrades are needed first).
Right now the dirt is hard packed and I'm wondering if it would increase the footing appreciably to rototill the ground. I think it would be better for the horses to work on, but I haven't seen an all dirt "arena" before. I'll be working barrels, low jumps, lunging, etc. Basically all around training type scenarios. Oh and any idea on the depth I should rototill it to?
