Almost Done!

The footing is down.... Hoorah! It still needs some cosmetic work, and I need to get the letters put up, but it is a fully serviceable riding arena. And it's about 3 billion degrees here. Bummer. I'm dying to try it out, but this heat is ridiculous. I may take Spider out just for a bit of walk work this evening, if the heat gets less oppressive. It's supposed to cool down Monday, so there is some hope!

So here's the view from A, or maybe C... I haven't decided yet:

We've also put in a Gazebo and patio at B (or E) for viewing and a play area to keep the kids busy.

It just looks so inviting.... I can't stand it. I just love a freshly drug arena.......


  1. Congratulations!!! I am looking forward to the photos with the letters up.

  2. Beeeeoootiful!!! It does look inviting...almost inviting enough to try in this heat...almost...*sigh* Hope you can manage a little ride with Spider, but don't overdo in your enthusiasm of having the arena at last.

    The rubber is mixed in too? Hard to tell but it looks like it might be.

    AND you have sand left...for that sandbox and all those other little projects you mentioned.

    Well done! Happy, happy for you.

  3. Eeeek! I love it!!!

    Seriously, that is one beautiful ring. I love the idea of a gazebo as well.

    Congratulations, and I hope you enjoy it for many, many years to come. Just gorgeous.

  4. OMG I WANT ONE!!!!! Looks awesome! Yep got to take that for a spin! Love the gazebo as well. I'm just waiting for summer down under so I can put my arena in too!!!!

  5. The rubber is mixed with the sand. We have rubber left over as well, we're going to let the footing weather a bit and then add more material if needed. A sandbox is in the works, of course!

    Last night poor Spider was covered in sweat just standing in the pasture, so I didn't ride. Maybe tonight will be cooler...... the waiting is killing me!

  6. Great blog! Check out another horsey blog:

  7. Woaw! It is stunning! What a great arena! I am waiting for the pics of you riding in that gorgeous ring ;-)

  8. It's great! You must be really excited to have such a great place to train. The place where we board for the winter has rubber mixed with sand and I LOVE it. You can almost feel the bounce :)
