If you are looking for a sure enough sturdy fence that can withstand pretty much anything a horse can throw at it, you will probably be better off just buying some panels from TSC or your local Co-Op. I got mine from a company in Abilene, but they don't mass market their panels to stores nationwide. They are both cheaper and much tougher than those orange or green tubing panels you can get.

If you are going to be putting it up while you're there and then taking it down when you leave, I suggest some of those step-in t-posts with at least 3 strands of wide electric tape hooked up to a charger (either solar or plug in).
Would you mind telling me the name of that store? I'm needing a good place to buy panels in Abilene that won't cost an arm and a leg. Thanks.

Sure thing .

The company is D and D Gates and Panels. It's actually located just outside Merkel, but still relatively close to Abilene, about 20 minutes or so.

D D Gates Panels - Merkel, TX, 79536 - Citysearch

I have their lightweight panels that are 10' long and 6' tall and I have difficulty moving them by myself. I'd guess they weigh about 75 lbs each. Forgive the bad pictures as I was usually taking pictures of other stuff, but this is what they look like. They do have heavier ones but you'd need some sort of tractor (or just a lot of strong people ) to move those and put them together.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/
