Building an outdoor riding arena start to finish!
I am building an outdoor riding arena from start to finish! The place we are putting it is the top half of my pasture. What is the first thing I have to do to it?
It has almost no grass. Gets very muddy when it rains. not completely level, it kinda goes down hill.
Any information is awesome! and also any tips are welcome!
Thats a really good idea! what did you first thing you put down? (the fill?)
Yes the fill goes down 1st, then I think the next thing that was brought was dirt and then sand and some lime over that. The lime hardens and keeps it from getting too soft. If I hadn't found free fill it would have been sooo expensive as it probaly would have added another 7K. I oriced someone coming out with a skid loader and doing the 1st part. They quoted 5K and I rented a machine for maybe 300.00 and a long weekend of work. It was rewarding to do it my self.
