Yes, it is yellow in color. Our riding area is outside and roughly an acre in size, the footing is native northeast Florida sand over a natural hardpan base. This never gets hard and I only drop the drag to work the ground about 4 inches and I'll go longwise and shortwise across the arena to eliminate uncomfortable ridges (to my feet, anyway). If the ground has sat for a while I'll do circles, doing a 1/3 strip at a time- this will make it soft and fluffy. Also, I only drag if there is adequate moisture in the ground, otherwise it blows away and I get filthy. It is real nice to have great ground at home but that is not always the case at horse shows so it behooves me to haul to my trainer, a friends or even a show facilty occasionally to school my horse, so he knows how to stop in different gound.
