I think I would be more worried about my horses in a pen than the way I do them. Have any of you had a problem with horses escaping? Just wondering because I always just use a picket (highline) line for my horses. I've only ever had one escape, and that was because my sister forgot to use a bull snap leadrope so it just got unclipped from the horse's halter.
when you say highline what do you mean ,and is it just for tying for a short while or extended periods can they graze while picketed like that
It's a nice idea, but I would like to see how it holds up to 1,300 lbs repeatedly slamming against it before I would depend on it, as well as making sure that a horse can't get his head or leg stuck. My horse has pulled a 35 ft portable fence length out of the ground with his neck alone, and it doesn't look like that could withstand that much force. For horse things, I like to use the philosophy "build a chair to hold a person like you're building it to hold a rhinoceros!"
Hqaha that is awesome! I wouldnt use it for horses that always try to escape, but it would work really well for some hroses!! I love it!! Haha to bad I never actually trailer somewhere for overnight, and when I do, the place im going has a barn
No kidding! The thing that threw me off when I first saw it, was the thickness of the corral, but it looks like its thick enough for your average horse. It would be of really good use for horse shows out here in this area.
