The barn got a tractor guy to come break up the soil in the arena and round pen. Nice and cushy now for arena work. It was nice to try it out! I'm happy to have a great place to ride at my barn, a round pen and then two pseudo trail riding type areas.
My dream is an indoor arena but those come with a boarding cost or there isn't much pasture available at the local facilities. We'll see what I can do on my own property someday but it's a pipe dream.
First world problems hey? "I wish I could ride my pony inside!" LOL
