Our 20m X 60m outdoor arena is under construction here in Virginia, and I’m looking for advice on arena fencing. We are 3 board wood fenced all over the farm but the arena is in a rather picturesque field, and I’d like to keep it as unobtrusive to the views as possible. A low, 1 foot dressage show ring won’t work for schooling greenies, kids trotting around etc–needs to be at least 3-4 feet for comfort.
Has anyone fenced an arena with no-climb style fencing (small enough so toes can’t get stuck)? Any other fencing ideas that aren’t 3 board and have a lighter visual look but are still safe? Anything interesting or unconventional that you’ve come across?
Thanks very much for any advice, pics, links etc.
