How does anyone keep the sand/dust down (not to forget...still actually within the dressage arena or any other outdoor arena) when the weather gets really windy?
How do you keep the dust down in an indoor arena during the winter time when you can not water the footing without worrying about ice/hardening being created within the footing?
not the road kind but a special kind for arenas

Sprinkle some rock salt to pull the humidity out of the air ~ this will help keep the dust down somewhat ~ IMHO ~ it has always helped me in all my indoor arenas.

Another vote for the rock salt.
Water and drag the arena well first, then LIBERALLY apply the rock salt, water again, and drag. We usually salt ours in October, and we don't have to start watering again until April/May. Works like a charm!
Magnesium Chloride. Kinder to the horse, kinder to the world, than other salts. doesn't usually require alot of watering, except perhaps in desert areas.
Some riders change their horse, they change their saddle, they change their teacher; they never change themselves.
Magnesium chlor. indoors, sprinklers outdoors
