so these are pics of my new and still in progress dressage arena.
after a year or two long battle i have finally got my wish. so i now have a dressage arena in progress.

now it needs to have the stones removed and it isn't finished being leveled out and the clay needs removing but were getting there! hopefully a lovely fence may accompany it in the near future....

anyways meet my new dressage arena!
also if you have any tips for a dressage arena i would love to hear them!

ohh and there may be some random pics included

Lucky!!! that looks like a huge area!

The drainage on the one side is draining right into the arena. This may create problems. A french drain may be useful to help keep that side of the ring from becoming a swamp. It is a real hassle, but you won't regret it, in the long run.
