     think you guys need to educate people on how to train their horse not what fence system to use.  MHO Jennifer

    I think the idea is that it doesn't really matter how good your horses are,
    if somebody elses cause the accident. Just like it doesn't matter how safe
    of a driver you are, if a drunk driver hits you head on......once you see
    so many accidents you do what you can so that it won't happen to you. I
    know my horses would also be fine in an electric corral (they have had one
    in the past), or in corral panels (they have spent many nights in those
    too) -- but I know that they are far safer simply being tied to the
    trailer. I hope people who are using electric panels will think about it
    some -- and pay more attention to where they set their pens up in camp --
    we should all also hobble train our horses so that if they do get loose and
    get tangled, they don't just bolt with everything attached to them. (this
    includes teaching them to stop if their saddles fall underneath them as
    well) Also, for new riders -- you don't need to buy your horse a corral
    to stay in when you go to rides -- tying them to the trailer (or on a tie
    arm) is just fine -- and, you will probably take better care of your horse
    because you'll take the time to walk it more often. Lots of people just
    dump their horses into the corrals and leave them. They do so much better
    if you take them for a short walk every couple of hours---regardless of
    whatever containment system you use with them (you pick up a thing or two
    doing a lot of multidays )

    something attached and chasing them)
