Horse fencing is almost as simple as it sounds. It’s designed for horses. So it’s great for pastures and larger properties to contain horses, goats, and other livestock. Horse fencing is affordable, durable, and effective while keeping high visibility for the interior of the fenced area. Horse fence can be 4’, 5’, or 6’ tall. It’s always a 2”x4” pattern in the wire. The vertical and horizontal intersections of the wire also have knots for maximum strength.
Installation of Horse Fence
To install a horse fence properly, you make it almost like a barbed wire fence. You start with H-Braces at the ends and corners using large posts in concrete with a horizontal brace that is nailed together then wrapped tightly with barbless wire. Then you run your fence line with a mixture of t-posts and wood posts set in concrete. There are several ways you can do it but the recommended pattern is 2 t-posts to every 1 wood post, or just go with all wood posts. Since horse wire is heavy it is not recommended to use more than 2 t-posts at a time.
