Electric fencing may sound like a rather radical solution to containment and protection. But electric fencing is actually a safe, practical and cost effective solution which has been used successfully for more than 70 years.
Electric fencing is safe for both people and horses. It delivers shocks which are certainly unpleasant but which do not cause permanent harm. The horses learn to respect the fencing and to avoid it. It therefore becomes more of a psychological barrier than a physical one. It is safer than traditional fencing because horses are far less likely to attempt to jump it or to break through it when they are spooked or stressed. Horses can use wooden fencing to rub against and this can injure them or damage the fence. Barbed wire can also be hazardous and so electric fencing is a safer alternative. Horses will learn to respect the fencing but will not be stressed by it.
Temporary and Permanent
Both temporary and permanent electric fencing can be utilised. Temporary fences are ideal for creating small areas of containment and can be moved when required. Permanent fences will secure paddocks and can be used to protect existing fences from damage.
Cost Effective and Low Maintenance
Electric fencing is a highly cost effective option and will prove to be cheaper than traditional fencing in the long term. The materials are light and portable and so the fencing is simple to install. There is minimal ongoing maintenance required and an electric fence can last up to 40 years.
No particular expertise is required to install this type of fencing but you should follow the relevant instructions carefully. If you are unsure about anything then seek expert advice before proceeding.
