    Does anyone know what the ground is like at Murray, particularly the showjump arena?

    Is it on grass? Is it firm and even?

    Not that I'm fussy or anything :p

    If its in the ODE SJ arena then its grass.. Last time I looked at it properly (doing SJ crash crew) was summer and it was all right, a few uneven areas (probably where they'd had jumps before) But when I was there for the SJ day a month or so ago it looked quite green and even. So I think its kinda.. average? And grass.

    Thanks Myyky **)

    I am a bit of a paranoid mother so I might trot down and have a squiz at the grass surface before I enter :p

    Don't want my widdle poppet to hurt himself :p

    Usually for the training days they have 2 arenas going.. the grassed arena is for the smaller heights and the sand arena is for the higher heights...

    The sand arena is good.. not boggy or soft but not rock hard.. It's nice and large as well :)

    He's not jumping 1.05m in his paddock :p*#)

    My paddocks are currently shocking though pmsl!!! They desperately need harrowing but they are underwater and the tractor would be bogged bahahha. But they are lumpy and awful, can't wait to rip em up :D

    Poppet is grazing down the house area so he doesn't get his tootsies muddy :eek:
