If the contest doesn't go well you can also go the tried and true route with this!

I don't like to picket.. never have. I take panels if where I'm going doesn't offer pens.

I've thought on occasion making elec pens just for the portability of it, just haven't done it

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!"

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.
