Is an arena this size big enough?
I measured an arena that I am able to make an arena, It measures 43.5ft by 86.25ft..
I was wondering if this was a large enough area for one horse to ride with walk, trot, and canter. No Jumping.
This horse does saddleseat which has a slower rocking chair canter and good footing, he is between 15.3 and 16hh.
Is this a large enough area?
we have a 60x80 arena and honestly its the size of a roundpen.. unless you are doing very collected canters it is hard to work in.
That is very, very small. I have a 100' by 120' and I find it on the small side, so it is finally being increased this year by 30', had to redo the fencing so might as well make it bigger, right?
OP, I'd say that area is awfully small to do much. I wouldn't want to do any extensive loping in there, too much torque on the joints from having to lope in too small a circle.
The smallest I would want to go is 65' x 131' (20m x 40m)
ITA, I wouldn't want to build an arena with the short side any smaller than the width of a standard roundpen (60').
The 20m x 40m NaeNae recommended is realistically the smallest I would consider building.
