Horses are extremely powerful creatures and that’s why horse fences are specifically designed to keep them safe. It’s paramount to select the right kind of fence for your horses. Typical privacy fences can be easy for horses to break through and picket fences can present a problem due to the pointed tops.

It is important to invest in the right, high quality fence. Not only does a good fence keep your horses safe and secure, it can also help prevent damage to your property and surrounding areas.

Horse Fencing Basics

With so many different types of fencing, how do you know which one is right for you and your animals? Horse fences are typically constructed with wood or vinyl split rail fencing. Welded wire can be connected to a wood or vinyl fence to create a stronger barrier for the animal.

The openings of the mesh wire should be the right size so that a horse won’t get its hoof stuck. The mesh also shouldn’t be small enough to make it possible for a horse to climb on the fence or stomp down on the wires.

Wooden Board Horse Fence

One of the most traditional types of horse fence is wooden board fence or split rail fence. These fences can be made from a variety of different wood, including cedar, spruce, and pressure treated. They are typically built to be 4 feet tall, although some can be higher or lower. Wooden horse fences may require some maintenance, including painting or staining, to keep the fence in the best condition possible.

Vinyl Horse Fence

Another popular option for horse fencing is vinyl split rail or ranch rail. Vinyl fences are often a popular choice because they are low maintenance. They can come in a variety of styles and may be built with 2, 3 or 4 rails. However, they may not be as visible as wooden fences which may be a concern to some horse owners.
