Keeping Animals In - Horses and Ponies
Welcome to our range of electric fencing products and kits for horse lovers. Our horse electric fencing is designed specifically for equestrian users. Our range combines quality, strength and safety with value for money.
Within our equestrian range you can select from a wide range of products; ranging from our value based tape/rope and posts (see Electric Fencing Essentials) through to professional level products.
Electric fencing systems can be powered by mains, battery or battery/solar powered energisers. The range combines a wide selection of energisers, horse fencing posts, paddock tape, paddock polyrope and insulators and tensioners.
Temporary Electric Fencing
Electric fencing is a very economical and effective method for containing horses and ponies. It can be set up as a temporary containment fence, or in combination with wooden strainer posts at corners and ends, will act as a low cost semi-permanent fence.
A temporary electric fence can be used for strip grazing, or for keeping horses away from dangerous areas (and each other !). Being very light it can be carried around on ‘treks’ and used as an ‘instant corral’.
If you are just starting out (or want to extend an existing paddock) then why not try our comprehensive Equestrian Electric Fence Kits which are very reasonably priced and include everything that you will need just switch on and go!
Permanent Electric Fencing
Permanent electric fencing i.e. post and ‘electric’ rail costs between 25-30% of the cost of a normal Post and Rail fence and it can be erected in less than a quarter of the time. It looks good, cannot be chewed or used as an itching post. Once erected, temporary electric fencing may be linked on to it anywhere to create temporary paddocks.
Post and Rail that is already in place often needs a line of electric fencing around the top to keep horses and ponies from rubbing and chewing – a post and rail protection kit with stand off insulators will do the job!
