We just recently last week built a new arena. 100ft x 140ft. We used treated posts concreted in with no climb horse wire and three rails. It cost roughly $1500 for everything. We wanted a dog/small child proof arena so you could not do the no climb wire.

I bought portable 10 ft long corral panels. Including the gate panel (4 ft), it gives me a round pen of 58 ft in diameter or 184 running ft to be configured into a rectangle/oval shape if wanted. I bought the panels when the store had a sale on them. The cost was approximately $1,400.

Do you think he would behave in an arena even if it had low boundaries? Probably the cheapest way to have an arena would be to flatten out and area, dig out enough to put in new footing and put up boundaries like this:

If you need it covered to be able to use it all year, something like this would work in a temperate climate:

I have no idea how much any of that costs, though

He's very young and green so low boundaried are probably not a very good option but we have a flat area all we need now is to make it into an arena!!!

20 X 40 meters is the standard size for an English arena.

I second using portable corral panels. I bought a 50' round pen (12 or 13 panels) for about $900 delivered this summer and added that to our other panels making a 110' (maybe 120', we moved it since I last measured it) by 67' pen for under $2,000.

For footing I am not sure of what you might want to use. We were going to get sand but sand is pretty expensive in our area and I'm going to college next year and the only one who rides in my family so $2,000+ for sand would be a big expense that isn't going to get used. It isn't the best but we just put it up in the flattest part of our yard. It's easy to move and adjust, especially because I don't have to worry about moving/fixing the footing.

We are both in Ireland aren't we trigger, so I can probably give you a good indication. I just had an arena about the size of a 40 metre circle built... Its small, because that's all I have, in terms of space. I got it done properly, with crumb rubber as the base, and its bloody FANTASTIC! Its perfect for a pony like trigger, because there are no long sides for the pony to tank off on... Its just a big circle. Mine cost roughly... 6500 euros to build. It was awesomely cheap for something that good!
I love it for doing dressage in, and you can put a small jump or two in there, but only if the pony is small. My horse is 16.2 and still growing, so he is simply too big to jump in there :P

(Candycanes yes were both in Ireland!!)

Trigger is 15h and I was looking for an arena that's maybe rectangular so if he does decide to run off I am in a controlled area and I will stop him and then make him do it myself!!

Something cheap but big enough to canter, do some circles and a few jumps (probably only 2 or 3). €6500 is a good bit off my limit!!!

What is the cheapest fencing?

I was discussing it with rhos and hers cost her a considerable amount more... I won't say without her consent of course.
But in terms of fencing, if you want really good fencing I suggest post and rail, but that's quite pricey. Your best bet then is an electric fence. You know the white tape? If you put that up and let him loose in the arena, he might try and barge rhrough it the first time, but one shock from it and he won't try it again... Unless he's stupid. Which most aren't
