Round Pen Question, size.

Is it safe/acceptable to ride in a 40' round pen, or is it best to stick to 50 and 60'??
Thanks. :)

I suppose it would work for walking and some trotting. It seems kind of a small circle for balancing at the canter unless the footing is supreme and you have a well trained well balanced horse and rider.

40 is fine for walk and trot but you need one a bit bigger for loping. Unless you have a pony or small horse. IMO
