Friends in AZ all have pipe panel fencing so corrals, runs, and arenas can be moved around. However, for rentals, look into having it permanently installed, or it will disappear when your renters move.



A 'mare motel'-style shelter with a roof/shade and a pipe run would be sufficient shelter in a desert climate. A larger turnout area could also be used for riding. A 1-acre parcel is very small for horses... 2.5 acres and up are much more 'doable' in terms of room for shelter, runs, turnout/riding area, plus room for hay/feed/trailer/tack storage. If your parcels are adjoining, it may be possible to make one larger riding arena accessible by use for all properties, as long as it's properly maintained by you.


Make sure your zoning and insurance allows for horses and protects you in case of a lawsuit concerning the horses. I know at one point we considered purchasing a property and adding stalls/fencing/arena and renting it, but the insurance quotes once we went from rural property to 'horse property' made in unfeasible for us.

@rockwind1 can you pm me your contact info? I have a trainer friend who brings 5 - 7 horses down to AZ every winter so she can train through the winter time and then brings them back to MT in the spring to sell. She is looking for a horse property rental from Dec - March time frame every year. If you PM me your contact info I will pass it on to her and her husband.

Everyone I know in Arizona has either portable pipe corral (that's what I have) or pipe corral welded in place (if they have the money or skills to do that). (Except for the people who use barbed wire fencing that is falling down......and you don't want to be like them.)

I think getting things welded in place would cost a fortune and may get wrecked if renters tried to remove it. I do see rental property here in CA where the renters can bring your own pipe corrals in, as long as the land is cleared that's what I'd try.
