Has anyone used this for temporary fencing?

I'm thinking about buying this....FAST FENCE Horse Trail Ride Kit.

I board my horse only about 15 minutes drive from home, and I plan on keeping her there. However, I have tons of trail space behind my house, and I'd like to bring her home for the occasional weekend / vacation period. Do you think the above product would be sufficient? I don't have fencing on my property, but it IS a quarter mile from the road. She's not a runner, and will stop to eat every chance she gets. She may get a little anxious if she's there overnight, so I want to be sure this will work. she is VERY respectful of electric fencing.

Thanks in advance!

why not it will give you experience in camping out with her. but i would try it out in a fenced in field at your boarding place first and make sure the horse understands the boundaries if no problems then go for it :)

If she respects electric fencing, it should be fine. The only thing I would watch is that she could be nervous being alone (I assume) and away from her buddies.

I'm not so worried about her being alone, she HATES other horses. Technically, I could sleep near her if she's stressed. She'd be in my backyard.

Ooo, that looks really neat, silly me didn't even think to look for portable chargers. Might have to steal this kit idea off of you
But it looks like it'd be okay, maybe the first few nights you could camp outside the temp corral to make sure she won't make a break for it, or do what I do and keep a halter on her that has your cell phone number on it just encase she does for some reason make a break for it.

That set up is really neat, and as long as she respects electric I would say go for it. Kinda off topic, but RaiRaiNY I live really close to you in Litchfield :)
