It took us a day to install the ring fencing. And the posts were not set in concrete. And depending on the size of the ring you want using panels just for a simple 60x100 ring your looking at about $18,000.00 or more. Yes easier, cost effective maybe not.
I spent $785.00 for a 100x80 outdoor ring ) includes the gate ( aluminum ) so to me it was definitely worth it. I could have my stone wall 200x300 ring for $18,000 plus me putting up the wall. Which im doing anyways.
The posts all I have to do is winggle them some and yank them up. And I have had this ring for 2 and half years now.

^^^ You can get 16' corral panels for about $120, so 60x100 would be around $2400.

yep, I talked the guy at the local Tractor Supply after your post..they currently have 17 in stock at this price. I am going to take your advice though & look for some used ones 1st to cut down cost as I will need about 36-37 to complete a 100x200 ft arena...I already have an extra Priefert walk thru gate.

We have panels as well. The only problem with them is that we didnt have them all anchored to the posts so when my colt decided to forget how to be tied he dragged 4 of the pannels about 20 feet taking the rest of the panels on that side wit him.

My rescue mare did this with my round pen when tied to it...I learned from that one..lol I put up 2 hitching posts after that & thankfully she blamed the mysterious shadow monster that spooked her.

Do you have a "tractor" gate at 1 end or yours? How did you attach it to the panels?

No we have this one



We have T posts at every other panel now and chains to go around them so my tards can't pull the panels anymore

I have used the push in posts and the 1/2" electric ribbon. It helps if the corner posts are good and solid, 3 at each corner and bracing. Two rows work very well altho I've used single. My horses aren't half wild so this works. Wire can be used altho the ribbon is more visible. It just helps indicate a boundary to the horses.

We used a couple of the panels that hook together with the large pins instead of chains/slots and you can easily pull the pins and swing/drag them open like a gate to get a tractor or truck through instead of using real gates.

haha we have 2 random ones like that being used as our gate/fence for our cows.
But with our chain ones we just unchain 2 of them and swing them open for our tractor....since our gate opens to the stalls and we can't get our tractor in ther haha
