Hurting after riding on mulch

So a couple of weeks ago I had my first lesson, improved so much in that hour, but Buzz was a little tender to start off with but he worked through it.

How ever the next day I found him limping really bad, long story short he got a hoof absess, the vet was like it could of been from the mulch arena...

Now my question is, is there a way I can toughen his feet up, without having the acsess to somewhere with mulch besides my lessons?

I havn't had a lesson since then, but didnt really want to since last time he got a hoof absess.

Didn't the vet tell you what to do?

If your horse was sore before the lesson started I would think the abscess was already brewing & was not caused by riding on the mulch.
Unless the mulch was made from black walnut or had big sharp sticks I don't see how it would cause problems. I think it's a coincidence that he turned up lame then.

An abscess can result from a single grain of sand.
