Best PORTABLE electric fence charger?

I may be going to one or two 2-day barrel races and I've never done an overnight before. I don't have a living quarters trailer, so I'd just be "rednecking it" for the night.

My horse is used to electric fence, so I figured I could make a small pen for him next to the trailer. I like the idea of a pen so that he can lay down if he chooses. If I simply tie him to the trailer, he can't do that.

Any recommendations on a battery-operated portable electric fence charger?

It is not enough to know how to ride; one must know how to fall.

This is what we use: Red Snap'r 10-Mile Battery Operated Fence Charger - Mills Fleet Farm

It's worked pretty well for us. For the grounding rod, we just use a long screw driver. If the ground is too dry, you could add another line. Normally, we only have a single line for the fence but ours respect it pretty well. You could run 2 hot lines and a ground line in the middle.

The only issue that we've had is the clicking noise but that could be because we tie the charger to the truck and the noise travels through the truck. You could tie it to a post which would alleviate that.
