Ah yes- spring- spring in Ontario at least means the anticipation of getting out and riding with the reality of footing that can be wet, slippery, cuppy, dusty and spongy all in one week.
How to remedy this..? (don't say build an indoor arena)
In the case of a dirt paddock/sacrifice area, has anyone had any experience with the options available ....like.....
hog fuel (wood bark/waste wood)
subsoil replacement with drainage rock and resurfacing
I am interested in any first hand knowledge-especially the waste wood solution- seems to be a popular solution out in the West but haven't seen any paddocks with it in (Southern) Ontario yet.
