Depends on how fast you need it.Metal tube type panels can be bought used at farm actions fairly cheap but it may take a year to get enough and of course the time spent at auctions. You can also keep an eye on the classifieds although again the time thing.
THere is a thread here on the forum with photos of a horse, but I was interested in the fencing in the background. Check it out on this link. Its the wood on wood ones. http://www.horseforum.com/horse-bree...ts-pics-21906/
It looks like it would be easy (if you have post hole digger) and fairly inexpensive to build.

Depends on what kind of corral you need. I made a small (~1 acre lot) for my horses with electric fence. It worked great and cost me around $300 to build.

I'll take a picture if you're interested. We needed a place to keep the horses when we were unloading cattle out of the pasture, this upper pen as we called it worked great and they were in there for days/weeks with a bale of hay when we were working them and we even rode in it.

Once the horses knew the wire was hot, they didn't even bother to test it.

I agree, what kind of corral do you need? How big does it need to be? What kind have the horses been kept in in the past? If it is for broke horses, you might be able to do a double wire electric wire fence. I am unsure of the cost but you would only need posts, insulators, wire, and a (oh, I'm having a blonde moment...........) that thing that sends the shock down the wire, I want to say generator, but that's not right. LOL. However, if you have young or unbroken horses, you would need something a little more secure like metal panels or wood rails.

Lol SM, you beat me to it. I was coming back to say that my horses were well broke and had fence respect.

I agree if it's green or a baby I'd find something stronger. I ran a 2 strand electric fence and used the push in the ground type posts, then the metal posts with insulators on the corners.

We call the power thingy a charger. Lol...I think that's right. You said generator and I went brain dead too... Must be a monday! :roll:

CHARGER!!! Thank you Dumas, I have had them my whole life and just had a brain fart. LOL. Even with a mini, the same rules still apply. They can actually be harder to keep in with the incorrect fence than bigger horses. Good luck

Generally speaking, getting a wooden one done would be better but the metal panels are a lot better because you can relocate your corral where need be. Metal panels are a lot more versatile. You can take them with you for showing, camping etc etc.
