Think like a horse

by Clinton Anderson

I am working on my round pen putting it closer to the house for easy access. I am constructing mine to look good and be functiional. Use 3 to 4 1x6 boards as the sight barrier for the horse. A 50' diameter 4"x4" treated poles 8' long 3' will be in the ground for stability. Remember no sharp corners anywhere the horse will find them even on gates. I would not use cables or wires for round pen training due to the physical sight needed by the horse to know the barrier.
No wire cattle panels please.

Keep your horse safe,
If you think it might happen it probably will.

I like a round pen 60 to 70 feet, I dont have to worry about getting in too much trouble because the pen is too small and I feel the horses move a little better when not in such a small area,also I like my horse to stop stright,The larger pen gives me that option,with still being a safe place to train,We all train a little different but with the same goal in mind,(not hurting ourself or the horse)and comunicating to the horse in a way that is understandable to them in a positive manner.The round pen offered by Clinton Anderson is one of the safest and well built round pens on the market,If you add that to his training program,You are setting yourself up for sucess,Just a few thoughts from arcadia Louisiana.
