    Default Building training track, need fence

    Hi, I am building a 20' wide training track around the outside of my 18 acre pasture. It has an outside white vinyl fence, but I want to fence the interior with a track/race fencing so we can gallop and not get hung up on the fence. Of course, PVC would go with what I already have, but I am open to ideas. I can't find where to buy it, when I search it the main company that comes up is out of England, and I don't have that kind of budget!

    Any ideas for track fencing and where to get it? Any ideas at all about building the track are welcome!

    The inside rail at Fair Hill Training Center is PVC. The posts on the main track are curved metal with a bracket. The newer posts on the Tapeta track are mde of PVC. You can probably find somebody to fabricate the posts for you. You can see photos here-http://www.fairhilltrainingcenter.com/photos.html

    Great, thanks for the link to the pics. I have seen that at tracks before and that's what I was imagining. I didn't know if you could buy it pre-fab or just make it, but it looks like it is just PVC pipe and that it wouldn't be too hard to make.
