Unless you are fortunate enough to have your own arena at home for private use; you most likely have to share arena space with other riders. And a riding arena (like any other sports arena) has rules to follow. But in horseback riding those arena rules are not always evident or clearly stated. This is a guide to help you ride courteously in an arena with other people (no matter the discipline; aka Western, Trail, Dressage, Jumper, etc.). Not only does this help with traffic, it ensures the safety of all riders and horses in the arena.
