dressage arena is finally under way!

So these are pics of my new and still in progress dressage arena.
After a year or two long battle I have finally got my wish. So I now have a dressage arena in progress.

Now it needs to have the stones removed and it isn't finished being leveled out and the clay needs removing but were getting there! Hopefully a lovely fence may accompany it in the near future....

Anyways meet my new dressage arena!
Also if you have any tips for a dressage arena I would love to hear them!

Ohh and there may be some random pics included

The drainage on the one side is draining right into the arena. This may create problems. A french drain may be useful to help keep that side of the ring from becoming a swamp. It is a real hassle, but you won't regret it, in the long run.
