I've been wanting to ask the owner at one of the local barns if she has considered allowing outside people to use her indoor arena. It isn't a super nice arena, but it is better than riding out in my pasture since I do not have an arena. What I am mostly interested in though is using it during the winter when the ground is frozen and/or when there is snow.
I was wondering what you guys think of this? Is it acceptable or intrusive? For you barn owners here, what would you think of someone using your arena? Do you charge a fee? How should I go about asking?
Any response or opinion is appreciated! :)
