    Default Air Foot in an Outdoor Arena

    I have an outdoor arena. I am currently upgrading the footing. I like the concept of the Air Foot product with its soft and springy feeling. I have spoken to many customers that have it, but all have it inside. I have also spoken to many people who have ridden on it, and everyone loves it, but no one can ever remember riding on it outdoors.

    Does anyone here have any experience with this product outside?

    This was installed in an outdoor sand arena where my friend boards. We had heavy rains that overwhelmed the outdoor (all weather with sloped base) and a lot of the airfoot floated/ washed out of the arena. It was horrifying. You might ask the manufacturer and rep about that and also insist on seeing outdoor arenas with it installed ---- and ask owner how it holds up in heavy rains.
