    we used shell as footing in our arena (we also have shell/sand roads in our area) it compacts enough to make a good footing for driving but is much softer than pavement or limerock base a sand arena would get your horses in great shape i drive on sand trails and it does a great job...

    shaft stops

    if you are already in "nonshow attire" use breeching! your horse will be so much happier with breeching if pulling such a cart. if i use a cart other than my Houghton in classes at AMHR shows (or if its a deep arena), i always use breeching! if i use an easy entry or cde cart, i use my sport...
