Homemade corrals?

Has anybody here made a homemade portable corral to go with their trailer?

My quarter horse seems to be able to find a way to tangle herself no matter what you do with a rope so I don't want to leave her tied when we go camping in a few weeks. So I am looking for ideas to build something quick to set up for short trips that doesn't break the bank.

I have not made one but I would assume battery or solar powered fencer with step in posts and electric tape would be pretty easy to toss together.

That is along the lines of what I have been thinking, but I was hoping someone here might have had something simpler.

Those look like they would take up a lot of storage space to haul.

Thanks for the ideas.

I do not think it comes any simpler if you want an actual fence.

Elctric fence with a battery and some step in post does not take up a lot of room easy to set up. Or find a camp ground that rents stalls. Its all in what you want to do. My horses get to take classes about standing tied at the trailor every time we go to a show or camping.lol

When I first started horse camping I used a stock trailer then a 2 h straight load Gn w a 4ft DR. I had 4 12ft gate panels that hung on the side of the trailer(steel). The hanger was at an angle so the gates would slide to the trailer. I tied or bungeed the bottoms to the trailer...I now have a living quarters and can't seem to put any hangers on it so I use an electric fence corral. I don't want the horses tied or near the trailer. They can tear up to much being curious.
I also bought the Cart a corral. And it was ok except it took up all the rear tack space. It was heavy to place in it's bag and 1 person to grab. And the horse tended to pick it up. Sell it to ya real cheap...

This is what I use:

For posts:
Zareba Pigtail Post, 39 in., Pack of 10 - 3605469 | Tractor Supply Company


For wire:
Electric Fence Wire, 200 M/656 ft. - 3601083 | Tractor Supply Company

For charger:

Zareba Fencer SP504 Battery - 3604942 | Tractor Supply Company

I have a friend who got extra loops to put lower on his posts so that he could run two strands around his. I don't know where he got them, but TS doesn't carry them, and the one strand holds both of my guys just fine.

I couldn't find any step in post like that at my local TSC store. I guess I will have to ask somebody about them.
