    You already had them answered. Multiple times.

    Any person who was competent enough a horse owner would know where. I don't even own a horse yet, and I know where to get round pens.

    You are going to get judged, no matter where you go. I'm 20 and my experiences are questioned pretty often. Its not that I'm not trust worthy, its that you are taking the life of something living-- and not to mention dangerous-- into your own hands. Any number of things can happen, or go wrong.

    What in the world makes you think you need one now? Why not wait in the future when you are older? You are still young, and have time to learn so much. I have my moments where I'm all "rush rush rush! Gotta get ready for a horse!!!" But I look logically and I realize: I'm in NO position right now to own.

    Take what you have and explore. A horse is a huge commitment.

    I was wondering that too
    Take what you have and explore. A horse is a huge commitment. even just riding is a big responsibility, that horse is trusting you to keep him or her safe and the owner of the horse is trusting you not to due anything to mess the horse up.
    Welcome to the equestrian world where we judge and are judged. I'd get used to it pretty fast, you'll never survive it otherwise.

    Already having 2 horses, I would have to assume that your parents already know where to get supplies. Did you ask them? What did they say? Go on an online forum and ask where to get stuff? Maybe they did. Or you didn't ask them and are trying to do this without them knowing. Or just making it up.

    If you have 7 riders in your family, wouldn't it be better to just get an already trained horse? You wouldn't be able to ride the yearling for at least a year. That's just when you would start breaking the horse to ride. Then at least a couple months of steady training.

    Buying a trained horse, you could ride right away, wouldn't have to buy a round pen, and wouldn't have to spend time and money on training.

    I think you have that fantasy vision of those in the movies. Real life is nothing like the movies. You need to know what you are doing to handle and train an unhandled horse. Even though you may have help, I don't think this is a wise decision.

    Deschutes- I know where to get them for super expensive. I am looking for cheaper possibly used ones. I am only 14 so I don't have a full time job and I can't legally. My parents said they would agree to let me do this if I raised the money myself. I have been working so hard to get the money, pop cans, extra chores, chores for other people, etc.

    Everyone- my parents have enough money to pay med bills if something ever happened, we aren't poor(we aren't rich though either). Making me earn the money is a responsibility thing. Like I said I can't send in my application till I have the pen or I will or I would be committing a felony. I'm not going to commit a felony that's why I need a round pen so fast. I did not come up with this 15 minutes ago. More like years ago and its taken me this long to get the money I have. I especially won't be committing any felonies since my dad' s a detective, but I wouldn't commit one anyways:)

    Deschutes- I know you are trying to help so thank you, I know I will be judged in the horse world and people won't always trust me. I am truly sorry you can't own a horse. I really hope you are able soon, you seem like a really responsible person and I know you would be a great owner. So, thanks for all your advice and I hope you continue to share your knowledge with others:)

    Trust me. There will always be yearly mustangs available for adoption.

    I find that it is so much easier not to stress about the finances, the where to put them, the training, medical bills, feed, until after I am financially off.

    Trust me... It will save you so much stress, and grey hairs!

    I just got a job, and right now I get thirty hours bi weekly currently. If I didn't have obligations to help keep my family afloat, my volunteer work, my equestrian team, or my car, which all take money, if be snatching up this beautiful seven year old quarab. But... I don't.

    Edit-- thank you!

    I am in a position like you are, so I can really relate. And I can say in hind sight, the victory is always sweeter when you start out on a good path, mentally, financially, and physically.

Especially in horse experience years. Having fun aka a wonderful time is all monitored by very experienced horse people and that's why all the stories you see are successful. Plus its on a website they are not going to post stories that didn't end well to make their program look bad.

    There is a difference between riders and trainers. Do you have any training experience?

    I have tons of experience and my mom was a trainer. Plus I have two 4h lead/mentors and a high school senior who is another mentor and has done the program multiple times.

    So, where have you checked already? Did a search with google for "round pen panels" and I got several websites that offer them. What price range are you trying to stay in?

    I also searched on eBay for "round pen panels". Found these which they say are good for mustang requirements:
    Horse Fence Round Pen Arena Corral Panel and Farm Gates | eBay

    You said you need 7 panels. That would only make about a 30' round pen. Not very big for a turn out. Just a thought.

    Usandpets- thanks! I looked on all those things. Yes I saw that on eBay and looked in to in and found out shipping would be over $500:( I only need 7 because it will be connected to a stall and I have three other fields, two big one small, that he or she could be turned out into once gentled. I have watched craigslist, eBay, done google searches, etc. I'm trying to stay under $80 per panel, $85 at most. Thanks again:)
