Temporary corral ideas

Currently I am boarding my horse, but have been bringing him home on weekends to ride around our farm. When he is home, he is stuck in the stall. I would like some ideas for a temp corral that I can move around my property to allow him grass eating time. I saw some things on the internet PVC temp corrals, but not sure if they are safe. Plus, my husband thinks they will be heavy and he said there are "better" ideas out there, but he hasn't told me what the ideas are. I don't want to spend a small fortune since we will put up the permanent fence within a few months. Thanks for any advice you can give this newbie.

Try a temporary electric fence using step in posts, electric rope and a solar power unit. As long as the area is large enough and the horse has enough space to move around comfortably, this should be easy to move and work well.

If I were getting fence in a few months I would just use the stall. Any thing sturdy is heavey and expensive and I don't find electric all that reliable especially if a storm comes up

I use about 10 step in posts & a single strand of hot line. (Which I don't always have hot) The horses respect it. It's easy to move. Easy to make it hot, and it an be any shape or size.
