What is the Proper Round Pen Size?

I am considering buying a panels to make a round pen. I was wondering how many 16' panels you would need to make a 40' round pen, or a larger round pen. Any feedback is great. Thanks

Your diameter multiplied by pi will give you the circumference. Your circumference divided by 16 will tell you how many 16ft panels.

So 40ft x 3.14 (ish) is 125.6 feet circumference.

Divide 125.6 by 16 = 7.8125

So approx 8 16' panels will give you a full 40 ft diameter. Or you could do 7 panels and a gate ... Don't forget the gate!

Personally the smallest round pen I would work a horse in is 60ft diameter. 80ft is better for large horses or if its your only riding space.
