I don't have a round pen but I do have a small paddock. What do you mean by breaking? How old is the animal you want to break/work? I normally work with my filly anywhere. But when it comes to working her by herself I have a small paddock that she can work in. It would be so much nicer if I had a round pen but because I don't and can't afford one, I do with what I have.

I had a round pen but don't anymore. What I do now is just a lot of halter work. I have saddled him with the halter as well, until he is a little older (he is 2.5) and I have someone hold the halter while I try and ride.

I'm not sure I understand why one needs a round pen to start a horse. Any kind of mostly level, fences yard will do. O_o

Often it is more for the human's peace of mind than anything to do with the horse. Does a round pen make some things easier? Sometimes. Is it necessary? No.

I can't talk, I love using roundpens

I'm assuming you are talking about longing? If you longe a horse, it needs to be well halter broke first.

What exactly are you trying to do with your horse? How old is it? How much previous handleing has it had?

I've never used a roundpen, I believe if you have the fundamentals in place you can jump on in the middle of a field and not have to worry about what the horse is going to do. And that's normally what I do, get on in the middle of the yard...
