Blood has been shed over whether or not horses should be allowed turn out in arenas. What it comes down to is it depends on the arena and depends on the opinion of owner of facility. In other words, if barn owner say no turn out in arena, they are not likely to change their minds. As far as I can tell, if the horse isn't doing anything that it wouldn't do when being ridden, it won't make any difference to the footing. There are lots of people, however, who would swear that they do.
