    If you can only put one picture of the arena up, use jumps to draw the eye to it.
    If two or more, then one just nicely groomed, without jumps, one with them.

    Don't know about the others, but we have the TR3.
    That is what most arenas around here use, short of going to the big one with the water tanks mounted on them.
