If you are planning to build or improve an arena, you must have this book. Think of the arena footing as more than a smooth surface--it's use and management must be compatible. The three most important concerns are dust, hardness, and drainage. You'll learn to control all three. Additional chapters cover purchasing land for horse facilities, arena maintenance, footing amendments, and more.
"For the first time, horsepeople can find practical, informed advice on constructing and maintaining and equine arena." -- Western Horseman
