Clinton talks about that (no round pen) in the video. You will skip the RP lessons and go straight into yielding the HQs stage one. Lunge for respect lessons will take the place of no RP. It may take just a little longer...especially wit a disrespectful horse but it is totally doable. If you can make a round pen though, even out of electric fencing, it is a great tool and worth the investment.
