Proper size for riding ring?

I am just looking for your opinion on the size of this riding ring. It is exactly 51 ft by 91 ft. Do you think that this is a reasonable size to expect a horse to walk/trot/canter in? (no jumping)

You can certainly walk/trot/canter without problem in 51x91. Ours is larger (100x200) to allow multiple horses and cattle.

I think you'll have a tough time cantering around the turns if it's only 51 feet wide. That's only four strides. You'll have to have a very balanced horse.

For comparison purposes, a short dressage arena like they use for Pony Club and lower level horse trials is 130 X 66 feet.
