    I'm not sure electical fencing is the best choice for me!! Especially considering Trigger used to scratch up against it!! And he could just jump it to escape!! I need a fence that doesn't look like he can just run through it!!

    They won't try anything if they know its electrified. He won't run through an electric fence when he gets the first shock. We have it up a lot, and we don't even need to electrify it any more. Also, horse HATE the clicking sound made by a fence. Trust me... He won't be stupid enough to jump it. Make sure to let him out in the make shift ring first, so he gets to know that he has boundaries that are no touchy.

    I was thinking of maybe a wooden fence because Trigger jumped electrical fences even when they were on and he knew they were on! My grandad has a big field across the road with big trees maybe there are some very big logs for fencing!! I know it sounds silly but it might just work!! And it could be very cheap!! (: Would short grass be ok to ride on until we get some other surface?!:)

    Oh right ok... I didn't realize he was a risk taker :P
    Yes, you can definitely ride on the grass! Wait till the ground firms up a bit though in February, as right now a heavy cob will completely poach it. I used to have to ride in the field all the time, as we didn't have an arena, and when the roads and fields were icy in the winter, I had no where. So yes it is definitely fine to ride on grass ;)
