An electric horse fence can be the right solution thanks to its practicality and economy.

Over time, more and more breeders around the world, as a tool for keeping their animals, use the electric fence. It is an increasingly used tool as it is easily adaptable to any need. It can be built for:

• long or short fences,
• farmed or wild animals,
• land with 220 V electricity or without electricity using a 12 V battery device.
Horses are certainly among the farm animals for which electric fencing is increasingly used.

Electric fence for horses: what materials to use?
The construction of an electric fence for horses requires some small differences compared to that of other animals, first of all for the materials to be used.

In fact, for horses it is necessary to set up a fence with higher posts than other animals, therefore it follows that even the height of the wire or tape lines must be different from the standards used for other animals.

The recommended heights for horses are:

• first line 85 cm from the ground
• second line 140 cm from the ground
Therefore, also calculating the depth in which the stake must be inserted in the ground, it is necessary to use stakes about 2 meters long.
