What's the best surface for a round yard/arena?

Would love some advice...i've got a round yard and have lined it with rubber now i want to put something down like loam instead of the slippery grass that is already there.
What is the best surface?...i was told that double sive river sand is good, does anyone have experience with this?
Do i need to put a base down first and what thickness should the surface be?
