    5 years ago Comments: In north Qld where we reside there are few facilities that have enough stabling facilities to house the amount of horses that attend. Either that or that they are very unsafe to use. Also the cost of using these is usually way beyond resonable. using electric fences is safer and much more economic than using portable yards, wich are cumbersome to use and transport. Instead of banning them why not do some sensible reasearch and maybe set some rules for their use. eg: can only be used in a designated area, area must be cleaned up after use same as stable area, still pay a fee that is less than that of stabled areas, the exception to the rule is stallions must be in portable yards, all fences must be clearly marked as electric (signage is available at all stores. this is a requirment to basic farmers using them.)allow final decision to the competition holder who must state clearly in their program as to the rules and regulations of use/non use.
