So I'm really curious to learn what people know about all-weather or winterized footing.
I've written about how the footing at Isabel's barn freezes solid and stays frozen for days, weeks, months at a time.
We have a trailer, so the option for hauling out to winterized or indoor facilities is an option. But hauling at night? Never tried it. And hauling in iffy weather?? Another unknown.
There are fields around the barn, but the winter ground is so choppy that if we try to do any real riding, it'd tear up the grass and ruin it for the next season. So it's not really an option for regular use.
'nope - ground is too soft for work!!' - isabel
So my current plan is to gather research about footing to pass along to our barn managers in the hopes that they are inspired to do at least, uh, something.
'or not. ya know, 3 months no work = nbd' - isabel
Please share any thoughts, ideas, knowledge etc. you might have about ring footing! Anything from the most utterly basic to the obscenely fantastic is appreciated!!!
