Quality Electric Horse Fence & Horse Fencing Supplies
Constructing a high-quality electric horse fence is essential to keeping your horses within your pasture bounds, safe from thieves, predators, and mishaps. Electric fencing for horse control is ideal for grazing and pasture management and offers many advantages when compared to a conventional non-electrified fence. Electric horse fencing is also economical, reducing cost by as much as 50% less than traditional non-electrified fences. An electric horse fence also takes less than half the time to build compared to traditional fence systems, saving you time and money.
In addition to the cost savings, electric fencing for horses act as a psychological barrier and many times are safer than a traditional non-electrified fence. Horses remember the short, sharp, but safe shock and develop respect for the fence. This also has the advantage of increasing the longevity of your fencing system as horses will be less likely to make contact with your fence causing wear and tear.
Keep your horses safe from Dogs, Coyotes, Predators, Thievery, and Accidents!
There are two types of electric fencing for horses; permanent and temporary. Either of these options may be powered with four energizer options: 110v plug-in, battery, battery/solar or solar energizers.
A permanent electric horse fence system is suited for long-term horse control and is the most effective way to control horses while maximizing pasture efficiency. It is important to make sure your electric fence system is constructed properly. The effectiveness of your electric horse fence depends on the correct combination of these four primary components for your farm/pasture:
- The energizer you select
- A ground system
- Well insulated fence system
- An adequate lead-out which is the connection between the energizer and the fence
Temporary electric horse fencing provides flexibility in pasture management and is ideal for short-term horse control or rotational horse grazing.
Easily transported, constructed and maintained, temporary horse fencing is an effective portable fencing solution, which can be powered by 110v plug-in, battery, solar/battery or a solar energizer.
Portable electric fencing has many benefits:
- Fast and easy installation
- Portable (hence the name)
- Easy to transport or carry
