A paddock must have a hard base and a soft layer on top and let through water.
The drained water must not be allowed to remain under the riding-ground. This is done by proper drainage and by laying the riding-ground with an incline of 1–2 % towards the edges. It is also ideal if you drain just outside of the paddock so that the water accumulates directly adjacent to the riding-ground.
The drainage trenches under the riding-ground must be laid with approximately 6 meter spacing. It must also be drained around the edges with run-off into a surface water gully. The riding-ground should have an incline of 1–2 % towards the edges. Either with the break point along the middle line like a roof or depending on the ground’s slope in general. If the riding-ground lies on sloping ground, the incline is laid in the direction of the land.
