So far, our one try at San Angelo State Park we started out with the horses in the provided pens. Each campsite has 2 wsmall pens, and Hiline tether poles. But when the storms coming at us got to looking serious, we moved the horses into the trailer (the horse trailer, not the travel trailer), which they got to spend the night in. The hailstorm got a windshield in one truck, but that was the worst of the damage. The other attempt, we were at the newly aquired and not yet officially opened state park in strawn, and we did a hiline tether between trees. It worked very well, let the horses move around, get water, etc.
I have given some thought on portable pens, but not seriously yet. Still looking at whats available.
