Smile Introducing my horse to riding in an indoor arena

Hello horsie people!
I'm relocating my horse next week to a barn that has an indoor arena, and my horse has never been in one before. I'm looking for some advice on how to ensure that my horse adjusts to this smoothly and with the least amount of stress (for her or for me!). Thanks and happy horsing!!!

Shouldn't be a big issue, just tack up, walk your horse in and around the arena, maybe give her a quick lunge if you feel a bit worried about getting on. No special tips and tricks for this one!

Just let her lunge and see the sights for a minute, let her get her nervous energy out and then go to work.

Can you turn your horse out in the arena after everyone else has left it? If at all possible, that would be one of the best ways to let her see it and not just see the 'boogers'.
