Back in 1994, The City of Agoura Hills and the Santa Monica Mountains Conservancy joined forces to create Old Agoura Equestrian Park.  One thing was omitted from the development plan - arena footing.  Only with the donation from the first horse show put on Agoura Horse Property, Inc. in 1994, was a truckload of sand added.  Twelve years later, that sand is gone, and what is left is a combination of clay, rocks, and manure.  The drainage in non-existent, so after any measurable rain, the arena is closed for days.  
 
Poor footing can cause injury to horses - anything from a stone bruise to ligament tears to excessive wear and tear on joints over time.  Many serious equestrians shun Old Agoura Park for that reason.
