    The problem is it isn't just part of the ring that has too much sand.. Its the ring in general.
    My horse's hoof sank pretty much into the sand. Almost all the way. And with my horse having osteoarthritis, she already is stiff and uncomfortable riding at first and with doing dressage, I don't know that any of the rings there are going to be okay.
    What really makes me angry is the fact that before I moved there, I specifically went into the ring and walked around to make sure it would be okay. But with my horse's weight, her legs sank in so much more than mine did so I thought I would be okay but really it's no good.
    If they would just take the sand out, it wouldn't be a problem... but the guy that owns the place has gotten so many requests to do that and he still hasn't!
    And the other thing that really bothers me is we already signed a contract for the month that we would give 30 days notice but I'm wondering if the BM understands our concerns she might let us move to another place but that's an awful lot of stress on my horse... I don't know what I want.
    I could move back to my old place but I would be 40 minutes away and my trainer wouldn't be allowed to come.

    I ride in the washes around here all the time. And our barrel arena probably has at least 3 to 4 inches of sand (but we also rake it all the time). As long as you aren't doing tight fast turns you should be fine. Just take it easy until your horse gets used to it.
    With the grass area, I would walk it yourself 1st to see if there are any uneven spaces or holes that you can't see.

    Some of the more serious people at my stable trailer their horses to other locations and ride there because they don't feel comfortable using this ring all the time.

    It makes me feel horrible. To be honest, I begged my family to move my horse their and then it turns out I don't even like it.

    Can't wait for my trainer to visit it later today and tell me what he thinks. Because I'm just not having it.

    Just use the grass then. There's probably nothing in the world wrong with it and, like people have said, folks had to ride in grass long before arenas existed ;) I don't see why you needed to ask if you already had your mind made up that neither riding surface will work for you.
