Fencing for horses fits broadly into one of the following four categories: Timber post and rail is the traditional paddock fence, but needs regular maintenance as it is susceptible to cribbing by horses. Electric fencing is a good temporary solution but, again, regular maintenance is required. Tornado Wire’s Torus horse fencing is manufactured from high tensile steel wire; the specifications available can cater for horses of all sizes. Tornado Torus horse fence provides a range of permanent low maintenance solutions for containing your horse and any other animals that may also share their pasture. We recommend a double fence in situations where horses are present on both sides.
Horse fencing often has to play a multifunctional role, not only securely containing your horse and any other animals who share their grazing, but also deterring domestic animals, such as dogs, from entering the paddock.
Where paddocks are divided and there is a possibility that horses could be on both sides of the fence, we recommend double-fencing with at least one metre between the two fences. Alternatively, off-set electric brackets can be used to enhance the fence.
