lighting

I am looking to light my round pen to work in the evenings and at night. Do any of you have any suggestions for the type of lighting to use?

Subbing -- interested in outdoor lighting as well... hopefully for next year.

I have dusk to dawn lights on the corners of my outdoor. The electric company put them in and charges me a flat usage rate. They aren't stadium bright but put out plenty of light to work in.

So they are on all night? If so I wouldn't like that.

Yes they are on all night. I don't even notice them anymore. We went that route because they are more cost effective to run.

I am close in on 5 acre lots so I am sure my neighbors would have a say. Did they charge you to put them in?

They normally charge but my father in law retired from the utility company and called in a favor. :)

They aren't super bright but enough the neighbors might not like it, depending on proximity. My house is probably 100 yards or so from the arena and has a few trees between & it casts a small amt of light on my yard.

The only thing I can come up with is HPS lighting. I have two very small ones right now, but either I have them angled incorrectly, or they are not mounted high enough. We used HPS lights on the ski-hill years ago, I would have thought there might be something new out there by now. Maybe not.
