we have a sand school/arena. With the british weather being as variable as it is the school can ride very deep and claggy putting extra strain on tendons.
I've had it on 2 occasions this year, at the beggining of the year the school got super wet and ended up riding very deep. Then in mid august the school went bone dry and the wind was blowing the sand around and no amount of leveling helped so we got some deep spots in the school where the sand built up and it was very heavy going.
