 Water System for dusty arena

Anyone have any ideas how I can set up a system to mist or water an indoor area about 120' X 60' --- I've got washed concrete sand, but it gets real dusty when my wife runs the horse around. I don't have water to the site yet, but someone told me I should be able to find a pump for the PTO on my tractor. If I run plastic piping along the ceiling (14') with nozzles every 10' or so could I then hook up the pump to a water source (barrels??) and mist the area. Does this sound reasonable or does someone have another idea or so??

The sprinkler system for the riding ring works. My friend has one in his, run in the metal rafters. His is made of PVC tubing. I guess I would make it out of crosslinked polyethylene so I would not be so worried about draining in the winter and cracking of the pipe.
Northern tool had a pump that will run off a PTO and provide the needed pressure. I might try a 12 volt pump and some batteries. You could add solar charging panels in the future.

Here is another idea to add to your pot. If you need water, look into buying a 500-1000 gallon plastic tank(they sell them at Tractor Supply or other farm type stores) , and add gutters to your structure and route the rain water into the tank. Then you will have the water source. I am considering on doing this with my barn to water the garden. I was thinking about elevating the tank to provide gravity feed for a hose.

Something to chew on......
