Horse Care : How to Build a Round Pen

August 16, 2019


Round pens are a great way to start young
horses. They’re very useful for teaching a horse how to lunge because a horse is completely
confined, can’t get away from you. If you’re starting a young horse, it’s nice to be able
to work in a small area where you have more control over what your horse is doing. And
just a nice thing to have on any farm. And constructing this round pen… It’s really
just put together with a series of pens that keep each section together, very easy to construct,
comes in just a large stack. And then as for the footing, it’s important to have a nice
footing in the round pen. This is a nice rubber sand combination. And to keep the footing
kind of confined into the space, you’ll notice along the side, there’s just a simple piece
of wood going all the way around the bottom, and this helps to keep the sand from going
out and leaving the round area.
