Dust Control

This is an open question to all. I am a novice horseman and have recently set fencing for a 95' X 120' arena. I live in Litchfield Park, Arizona (near Phoenix). After just a few days with horses the soil in the arena has turned to powder when dry and any movement creates a cloud of dust when wet it becomes both tacky and slippery. I am considering a 3" layer of grindings however it is quite expensive approximatley $1000 for arena of this size and I fear it my only be a temporary solution. I would appreciate suggestions from anyone familiar with this issue. I can and will make the investment in grindings but am hoping there is a either a less expensive or a permanent solution for the issue.

What about if you only wet it down a little bit? i.e. sprayed it down but not to the point of it being soaked? LIke, just enough so that it wasn't dusty?

I'm not familiar with grindings otherwise, I'm sorry =(
