I just put up a redundant flexinet. It works well.

Heres my handling system.
Its mostly made from cheap second hand hurdles, some of which I have fixed corrugated metal to with cable ties. The race itself is IAE shedding gate, guilloteen gate and 8 foot sheeted hurdles. That cost me nearly 400 in total, but it can all be home made out of wood or bought second hand.
