It's a heck of a lot more expensive then you'd think! At least to get it right. And even more expensive to maintain. We have a sand mix arena at our barn and we put literally thousands of dollars of 'stuff' into it every year to make sure the footing is just right. Not to mention constant watering and working with the tractor. We're a jumping barn though and footing is one of our top priorities. Sorry, no ideas for a cheap arena! Maybe just fence off a grassy spot?
