Your friend who has so many horses hobbled obviously knows what they are
doing and the horses are trained.  At a ride camp you have many people who
not know how to handle their horses and are really not experienced riders
and if they were to try and hobble what a night mare it would be.  I have
seen horses running through camp dragging the electric fence system with
them and have heard of horses dragging panels, horses getting feet over
the trailer ropes or Hie tie systems.  Nothing is full proof.  Just do
what you think is the safefest for your horses.  I like panels but went to
a 8' trailer and can't haul them anymore and now useing the Hie-Tie system
and so far I like it.  My horses will also stand quietly in a non
electrified, one string electric fence but you never know what might scare
them.  At Ft Howes one year it started hailing and 3 or 4 horses in an
electric fence went nuts and took off.
