I'm looking to build a home arena behind my house this summer. The only issue is, I plan to use it as often as possible, but only for the next 2-4 years, depending on what I decide to do. I recently graduated from high school and plan on being here for the next 2-3 years attending community college. In that time, I'd like a place to work with my two horses. However, I want to build something that my parents are able to get rid of once I move out and take my horses with me.
I realize that safety is always the number one factor in constructing a riding arena, and I don't plan on cutting corners in that area. I don't want a huge arena, just enough for two horses. I don't know much about building an arena, so I'm not familiar with dimensions or sizes. I'd like to possibly save some time and money in some form, since it won't be a permanent fixture. The property is on a very slight slant, so I realize there will be a little leveling to do, although perhaps there might be a better way to do this?
All help would be greatly appreciated. If you have any tips that you have tried yourself in building your own arena, or tips that you know of, I would be extremely grateful if you could share them with me. Thank you!
