Anyone with an arena - what do you do about autumn leaves?!

We had our arena built this spring and it is sand with rubber topping. I'm just wondering what everyone does with their arenas to clear them of autumn leaves. Do you do anything at all? I assume they will just degrade if left but I'm not sure how best to clear them?! Any advice welcome!

We blow them off with a leaf blower you have to get the knack of keeping far enough away to leave the surface but it works ok.

Definitely don't leave them!

I have friends whose sand rubber arena gets leaves all down one side and after four years of not being cleared its a bog on that side all winter long.
