That an area surface which is too hard results in excessive concussion of your horses joints.
That a deep arena surface puts alot of strain on the tendons of your horse.
If your arena is built to drain very quickly after rain - this same arena will require alot of irrigation during dry periods.
An arena base which is permeable drains the water out of the sand layer - this means alot of water is required to keep the riding surface moist.
When you loose the fines in the sand the surface becomes unstable underfoot and will not hold water when you irrigate.
The brown water that drains from the surface of your arena contains all the fines from the sand. These fines are there to provide the correct sand particle size distribution.
To add so called "Metal Dust" does not improve drainage - it will however make the sand a packing sand resulting in a surface that will compact easily.
Arenas with a "Crown Shaped" base for better drainage are difficult to maintain - in general the surface on the Centreline gets thin and the tracks too deep and heavy.
Well draining arenas are also difficult to irrigate.
On a hard surface the horse could slip forward as well as backward by take off.
