Indoor Arena Dust

Hello! I wasn't sure where to put this, so if it should go in a differenet forum, please let me know! The indoor arena where I board is horribly dusty. The BO has never watered it. On Thursday night I could barely see the other end of the arena through the haze of dust and I was covered in a thin layer by the time I was done. :( I have finally convinced him to water it, but am not sure exactly what should be done. Does it just need to be moist? Or should it be soaked through? How often should it be done? Any advice on the best technique? Thanks!

It should be somewhere between moist and soaked through. It should be wet enough to have a darker shade to it than usual but not wet enough so that it's slippery and dangerous.

It should be done every morning and if it completely dries out in a few hours it might be a good idea to wet it down again.

EDIT: I like putting my thumb over the hose's nozzle because I'm lazy like that, but this tends to take slightly longer. It helps get the right mix between moist and muddy I've found, though .
