Sand and gravel will help for a while, but it will eventually disappear into the mud and you'll have to use more unless you do something to help the drainage. I would avoid anything organic (e.g. straw)... it also helps for a bit, but will just retain more moisture in the long run. Bottom line is than having horses=having mud...their weight just churns up the ground too much.
