Temporary Round Pen Ideas???

So I'm dying for a round pen so I can do join up with horses, but the farm I ride at doesn't have one. It's not my farm, so it's not like I can just buy a bunch of boards and build a round pen. Is there any way I could cheaply build a sort of "temporary" round pen that wouldn't be too hard to put up and take down, but that would be safe enough to do join-up in? Thanks guys!

does the owner have any old panels lying around? you could do that, some panels are heavy though or maybe you could ask the owner about it and put it up out of the way so you wouldnt have to take it down after your done using it

Our horses know our secrets; we braid our tears into their manes and whisper our hopes into their ears.

You might can do this, Go to your local feed store or tsc, and ask for cattle pannels.. The are about 4ft tall and 16ft long.. you can put a few t post down and wrap the panels around them..

but like you said, you dont own the property, so idk.

But if you do find any ideas, maby you could use the backside of there barn... like half of the barn wall and make a moon shape round pen.. that would save you some time,money,space.. But i know how you feel, we dont have any soft ground thhat I can work my horse on.. therefor I dont have a round pen.. But mom said we might build one in the next month or two..
