Would you like to stay warm in the winter???
My college has heaters in our indoor arena. They are a life saver in the new England winters. They don't heat the air, just the people / horses underneath it. We get by with thin turtle necks or long sleeved tee shirts when it is 0 F. degrees out and snowing!
So this is the question. How much extra would you pay to board or come and use an arena like this in the winter?
Would it decrease the amount of cancellations that instructors have during the winter months?
What if you could tack up and bathe under these as well?
The only downside is that horses need to be body clipped. The amount clipped depends on the horse. Thin Arabian type coats usually don't need anything clipped, but on the flip side some of the big warmbloods need full clips, face and all just because they sweat so much.
