Icey Outdoor Ring, Salt?

There's couple places in my ring where the melted parts didn't completely drain out so now it's frozen over since it's gotten cold again. Would it be safe to use a mixture of salt and sand? Or should I just avoid the ice and don't do anything? Any help would be good!

Salt that needs to be cleaned out a hoof is BETTER than a slip on the ice, imho. I suggest using an eco-friendly type--they are labeled--that will biodegrade. Also, get one that melts the ice even when it's way below zero. Hope this helps! =D

Okay, thanks! Just didn't want to end up with a horse with sore feet!
