I wasn't really sure what section to put this in, so I am sorry if this is wrong. I have always used arenas with sand footing and they seem to work great. However, I recently looked at a barn that has dirt footing. It looks fairly deep (a few inches) and I am told it is watered every night and then raked (or maybe tilled?) every morning. It looked to have a soft texture. So my question is, is this footing okay for general riding and some jumping (cross rails and small verticals) or will it be too hard on horses' joints?
