RE: [RC] Panel users at rides - Ranelle Rubin


I know Barbara and Lud McCreary have used regular panels for their horses at rides, so Barbara may be able to give some insight..I can tell you I had a set made by a local guy out of electrical conduit that are wonderful! They are light, they fit my trailer perfectly, and I can set the corral up myself. They are holding up great, even when my 1100 lb "Arnold-Swartze-Hossy" of a horse thought 50 miles was not enough..we were in and the last riders were headed out for their last loop.. he proceeded to try to tear apart the panels to go with them! They held tight..not a bend in sight..

They cost about $70. per panel and I have 7. I figure they will last me forever!

If you use panels at rides, I'm interested in hearing about your set-up and also your opinion of using Priefert panels for horse containment at rides.
We now have a 3-horse slant that is about 25' long and offers enough solid wall on the passenger side that brackets can be welded to hold panels.
Our round pen is 90' and is composed of 12' Priefert panels.  I'm thinking I can dissemble some panels for ride weekends and place them on the side of the trailer.  We haul at least two horses, so this would mean seven panels -- which seems like a lot of weight to be whizzing down the highway with.
Would sure like to save $$ to achieve a panel set-up but am thinking that this might not be practical.  Feedback from panel users welcome!
