Equine Fencing – A Guide for Buyers

Wednesday, 22 January 2014 16:15

 

Humankind’s relationship with our equine friends goes back thousands of years. Since time immemorial, horses have provided us with a means of transportation, we have given them food and shelter, and horses and owners their have offered each other companionship.

Despite our long shared history, and despite the advances in fencing technology that have occurred over the years, there is still no ‘one size fits all’ approach when it comes to selecting the right fence for your horse(s). Every horse owner’s situation and requirements are different, and this article will look at some of the things to consider when selecting horse fencing.

Horse fencing options – Safety first

When choosing the fence to opt for, the welfare of your horse is of paramount importance.

If a horse escapes from their enclosure (say, onto a busy road), then the potential consequences don’t bear thinking about. Horses are naturally inquisitive animals, and if you present them with an opportunity to escape, they may well find it and take it. One precaution many horse owners take is to use an electric fence, as it dissuades horses from trying to escape (and also from using your fence as a scratching post, which can cause damage over time).

It is also important to ensure, as far as is possible, that your horse doesn’t injure itself on the fencing you erect. For example, if your horse panics, it may not notice the wires in your fencing, which could cause it to injure itself.

Other considerations when choosing new fencing

As well as safety considerations, it is worth thinking about the aesthetics and cost of your fencing solution. Everyone’s requirements are different. Some horse owners’ main priority is to have a fence for their horse that is functional, even if it doesn’t look great. Others place great value on having fencing installed that is both functional and aesthetically pleasing, even though it can cost a bit more.
