Do you advise to build a sand or grass arena? I am thinking of building a new jumping arena.

Sand for jumping because most all shows will have sand arenas so you’re horse will feel comfortable with it
I personally prefer a sand topsoil mixture for my arenas. It needs to have good drainage and concussion, especially for jumping.
Sand mixed with some kind of material is easier to maintain than a grass arena, it also stays softer than grass even if it’s dry
