I've had falls in deep dirt.. a horse can slip on any surface.. even on a freshly dragged arena.
IMO if OP is balanced good, she be iiiiight.

If the OP 'runs' the pattern any it will kill the grass-- especially if every day. .

Oh yes, it should be fine, until the OP's horses start coming up lame with ligament and tendon problems...

can't like because I'm on my phone.. but agree with above^^ .. doesn't it cause more strain if its not deep enough... just going to say here.. my friend 'ran' her horse on good ground.. goodish ground... and ONE run. And her horse ended up with 6 BONE CHIPS IN HIS KNEE.. so it's your risk. I know he still runs.. but is.high maintenance .. he is forsake now for 20grand lol

Uhmm.. that can happen in a chewed up arena, while your horse is in pasture playing, trail riding-- just about anything your horse is doing.. and that's why you always wrap your horses legs before you do anything strenuous and warm them up correctly.. you can't prevent pasture play, but you can prevent things like what you mentioned by properly warming up. ;)

True-- I guess you just have to be the first horse in the arena everytime?

We all know there are risks. But, we do the best we can to avoid injury we can do something about. Sometimes, injuries just happen and we can't do anything about it. But, there ARE some things we can do to reduce the chances of injury.

Meaning, if not running on grass reduces the chances of my horse getting a tendon injury, I'm not running on grass!

I just don't see how that is so.. people jump, work cows (cutting/sorting) rope, event etcetera, on grass-- and believe me, cutting is way more rigorous work than barrels.. I can't see how its more likely to pull a muscle/tendon, etc.. I believe the deep dirt would be more subject to giving the horse some kind of sprain, pulled muscle, etc.. especially after stepping off in a hole from where another horse has packed the loose stuff down..

The most I would worry about is possibly slipping after a rainy day..
