I'd like to know the specifics on this as well. Good question.

I know that you need a level surface with a good base fill. I'm not sure what material is best for the fill.

Then the proper mix of sand and nice dirt for the footing.

I read an article in a horse magazine on this a while back. Danged if I would have kept it......

I 2nd beau159's advice and as far as the base fill I have not a clue.

Call a local arena that you like (footing wise) and ask them what they did/use.

Personally I like a mix of sand and very good dirt, maybe a little more sand than dirt..Sierra's right though..Call one of your favorite arenas and ask what they use.
