Craigslist score! free split rail fence! woohoo! now what kind of gate?
I am getting 2 different sizes of split rail for free (I love Craigslist)and am so excited. The smaller 2 rail is going to be used around dressage arena and the larger 3 rail I am going to make a lunging pen. Both fences are coming from horse farms upgrading but I will take it since I'm leasing and on a budget
What kind of gates do you think I should use? I have plenty of 2x4s about 6' long I could do something with. Thought about tube gates but that won't match very well.
What do you guys think/
For the gate, since neither would be a turnout area, a quick-n-dirty gate would be to have one section where there's only one rail straight across, and you simply slide it out of its "moorings" to enter/leave.
A very simple "breezeway" kind of gate like this would be super-simple to build.
