Our indoor arena has sand in it and saw dust for the dust it helps for a while but after riding for a while it gets too dusty even with the door and window open! We are looking for a different way that isnt expensive!
Only problem with that is our barn has a 12' by 16' door that's open because we don't have a door for it yet so it would may freeze in there. Its a little warmer then outside but right now we have 2 feet of snow and its going to get cold this week. We also want something easier then that something we can use in it like rubber but not expensive like it. So we don't have to water every time we want to use it.
Mag Chloride is often sprayed on to control dust around here. Arena RX is another one. It won't freeze and one application usually last all winter. Until you get rid of the saw dust, you will always have a problem.
My previous barn had a similar problem so they mounted sprinklers from the rafters, and bought two lengths of plug in heated hoses. The sprinklers were a good 4 feet below the lights and since they were angled away there was never any back spray and they drained completely after use in the winter, but just in case, the hoses were heated.
