A well maintained Equine Arena is not only beneficial to your riding but a recent study shows it can actually aid both the horse and rider’s health.
In the study researchers concluded that dusty arenas aren’t just a pain to ride in, they can also cause long term health implications.Nicole Kemper, PhD, professor at the University of Veterinary Medicine Hannover Institute for Animal Hygiene, in Germany, who conducted the study found that poorly maintained arenas that weren’t adequately watered down could cause poor air quality. After conducting tests in four different arena’s they concluded that if an arena was poorly maintained, especially over the summer months then it could cause serious breathing problems for both horse and rider.
