    Mine is grass. I plan to turn it into a sand arena when I can afford it but for now it's grass. It gets slippery when wet, has mud pockets, hard ground, and does get tracks. But... It's what I have and what I can afford for now...

    I think if you have the money, opt for sand, if you don't, then do the grass until you can afford the sand.

    Thanks you guys all so much for the input!

    I really want to DIY this, but I'm a city born gal in my 20's, so it all seems a little overwhelming.
    I definitely don't want to spend a kazillion bucks on this, but since we are on a hectic slope, it seems like even leveling it out is going to be a big mission.

    Talking about cost: my instructor told me the other day about a person down the road from her, that spent the equivalent of $35 000 on an outdoor sand arena!!! Something about special fibre mixes etc.
    That nearly made me faint!
