No, they won't.Wondering if anyone could make some recommendations about using arena panels for an outdoor arena - specifically if they should be reinforced with posts (wood or t-posts)? I'm planning a 120' x 200' outdoor riding arena using primarily 16' Powder Mountain/Creek panels. I'm not sure if the panels alone will stand up straight or if I should plan to install posts at certain intervals for support? I would rather not if I can help it. Any thoughts, suggestions or experiences would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
I agree that you want some sort of post for every panel. I would prefer to put them where the panels link together because then you can reinforce that too. You don't want your panels coming apart if a horse makes forceful contact with them.
Personally, I think wood posts are going to be much more solid over the course of time, than T-posts. And safer in terms of impalement.
