Q&A Questions and Answers:
What is the proper footing for a round pen itself where the horse will be working. Does it have to be anything special or just whatever happens to be there? thanks
The simple answer to that is sand. In fact, the Spanish word "arena" is their word for sand. When your "arena" gets too packed down or dished in a walking area, just rake it a bit to loosen and smooth it. Sand also provides better drainage than other types of soil -- and if loose and free from rocks, it hurts less when you come off an unruly critter! :o)
Happy Horse Training!
