Electric fence for horses

Choosing the right horse fence is important for the safety of your horse(s). We still often see people opting for an aesthetic fence that looks nice with the house. Or that a cheap solution is chosen, to keep the horse on the pasture. All well-considered choices, but often the safety of the horse is not the main focus.

Gallagher stands for Protect what matters most. Our mission is that your horse is safe. At all times. Even if the horse goes on the run. Strange as it may sound, that is precisely when the horse should not be kept inside. It should be able to break through the fence safely and unharmed. Horses are flight animals by nature. If the horse is startled by something, it will flee and run away blind. And although a horse is highly visual, it will not shy away from any barrier at that moment. It will go right through everything. And that can have major consequences for your horse's well-being.

By choosing electric fences from Gallagher, you are choosing solutions that have been developed together with horse owners and have proven themselves in safety for years. Moreover, these electric fence solutions are three times cheaper, many times more durable and easier to maintain than conventional fences such as wood or barbed wire.

Why electric fences for horses?

There are several reasons why a horse owner chooses an electric fence for grazing his/her horses.

1. Safety

Every horse owner naturally wants his/her horse to be safe. Because a horse feels the pulse of the fence even at a distance, it will be discouraged from going further and will avoid the fence. Thus, you minimise escapes and prevent your horse from getting into dangerous situations. This, of course, is the basis of a fence: keeping your horse safe on the pasture. However, another important part of safety is that if your horse is startled by an external factor, it must be able to break out, without injuring itself. The horse will flee blind when startled and will then go straight through everything. To prevent your horse from getting hurt in such cases, use safe posts that bend with you, insulators and joiners without sharp edges and conductors that break when it really matters.

2. Cost savings

Electric fences are up to 3 times cheaper than traditional wooden or metal fences. They require less material and labour to install, significantly reducing overall costs. Moreover, electric fences are easier to repair in case of damage. Which, of course, also saves costs in the long run.

3. Flexibility

Electric fences can be adjusted and moved more easily than traditional fences. This is especially useful if the layout of the pasture changes frequently or if the horse needs to be placed in a different area temporarily. With an electric fence, horse owners can easily adapt the layout of the fence to the needs of the horse and the environment. For example, if two stallions need to be separated, electric fences can help.

4. Ease of maintenance 

In general, electric fences require less maintenance than traditional fences. They do not need paint or other coatings and are less susceptible to damage from weather conditions. Checking the fence periodically with the Gallagher Check is enough to keep it functioning properly.

5. Landscape conservation

Electric fences for horses have developed considerably over the years. One of the arguments for not using electric fence was that it was landscape pollution. The white ribbons or tapes disturbed the landscape, so people preferred conventional fences, which were less disruptive to the landscape. The conductors, but also the posts and other accessories are now designed to blend into the surroundings. The colour terra has been added for conductors, gate handles, posts and other accessories to ensure that the fence blends into the landscape but is still clearly visible to the horse. Because: safety for the horse always comes first!

Paddock management with electric fences

Paddock management is the careful management and maintenance of the pasture or paddock in which horses are kept. The aim of good paddock management is to create a healthy and safe environment for horses, in which adequate exercise, power supply and shelter are central.

When it comes to paddock management, electric fences are a good tool to use. This can be done with both permanent and mobile solutions. For example, with electric fence deployment, you can deploy a rotation system if you have multiple paddocks. With this, you ensure that the horses are regularly moved from one paddock to another. 

This helps prevent overgrazing and maintain the quality of the grass, Also, by using electric fences, you can separate horses properly if necessary. This way, you can make sure that all horses in one paddock have high-quality grass, are healthy and can still graze outside together.

More on permanent solution with Tape

Tape fences have been developed in cooperation with European horse owners. The main starting point for developing this conductor is safety for the horse. By now, this solution has been in use by horse owners in Europe for more than x years. And all those years of experience have resulted in the continued development of this solution. 

 Tape is wide (from 12.5mm to 40mm) and therefore most visible to a horse. Tape can be used in a permanent setting as well as for mobile solutions. Turbostar tape from Gallagher is the best solution. In addition to conductors in the tape, it also has a conductor at the top and bottom of the tape. As a result, the horse will not lean on top of the tape or go underneath it. Combined with the insulated line post solution and other recommended accessories, a tape fence is easy to install yourself. And can easily last for 10 years. 

The benefits of a tape solution at a glance:

  • High visibility to help prevent animal entanglement
  • Lightweight, high conductivity, reliable and hard-wearing tape ideal for both permanent and mobile fencing
  • Can be tightened with tensioners. A tight fence is usually a safe fence
  • Perfect for use in combination with the Line post solution. 
  •  Available in white and terra; in view of landscape pollution, we recommend the terra variant.
  • In case of impact due to escape behaviour, the tape will break with minimal risk of injury to the horse. 
  •  UV-resistant material (UV guarantee of x years)

More on mobile solution with Tape

A mobile fence with tape is ideal for creating temporary, easy-to-move paddocks. It is also perfect for subdividing large fields. Like the permanent fences, these mobile ribbon fences were developed in cooperation with European horse owners. The main starting point for developing this conductor is safety for the horse and mobility for the horse owner. 

 Tape is wide (from 12.5mm to 40mm) and therefore best visible to a horse. A mobile fence consists of plastic posts, a conductor and reels. Gallagher's plastic posts feature the unique Twist & Lock system. This means that the line can be set up in one go, and is then firmly fixed.

The benefits of a tape solution at a glance:

  • High visibility to help prevent animal entanglement
  • Lightweight, highly conductivity, reliable and hard-wearing tape ideal for both permanent and mobile fencing
  • Can be tightened with tensioners. A tight fence is usually a safe fence
  • Perfect for use in combination with the twist and lock horse post.
  •  Available in white and terra; in view of landscape pollution, we recommend the terra variant.
  • In case of impact by flight behaviour, the tape will break and/or the mobile horse posts will bend with it, with minimal risk of injury to the horse.
  •  UV-resistant material (UV guarantee of x years)

Installation advice for a mobile tape solution

Gallagher recommends the horse post with wire holders for horses and ponies. For mobile fences for horses and foals, we recommend 12.5mm Turbo tape. Ideally, reels are used for the convenience of the horse owner so that the conductor can be reused. For mobile fences, reels are attached to a reel corner post.

Note: The products for the mobile tape solution are made for creating a safe mobile electric fence. How the fence is placed ultimately determines how safe the fence is for the horse. Therefore, always adhere to the following advice for a mobile horse fence: 2 rows of tape, at a minimum height of 73cm and 130cm with a maximum distance between posts of 8 metres.

Reel corner post (5 reels / 5 insulators)
This reel corner post can be used together with a maximum of 5 reels or insulators. In combination with the insulators, this reel corner post is perfect as the start or end post of portable fencing. In combination with the reels it is really easy to put up portable fencing. The reel corner post is made of galvanised steel. Other accessories have to be ordered separately.

The Power to Farm

Which energiser is suitable for horses?

The answer is actually quite simple: all energisers are suitable for horses. A horse fence is powered depending on which source is available. If there is mains power near the fence, our advice is to always use this. If this is not available, you can choose an energiser with an integrated solar panel or a battery or battery device. When choosing an energiser, it is important to take into account the length of the fence, the amount of vegetation in the field and how many wires the fence has. With the Gallagher configurator, you can draw in your pasture and find out which fence suits you best.

Did you know that with our iSeries energisers, you can easily check the safety status of your paddocks on your smartphone?

What to look out for when installing fences for horses

When installing fences for horses, there are 4 important points to consider: 

1. The height of the fence: Horses are naturally good jumpers, and a fence that is too low will make them jump over it easily.

2. The height of the lowest wire: Horses like to roll on the ground which means they can end up with their legs in the wire (if there is no current on it). Therefore, always keep the minimum height of 65cm for the lowest wire.

3. The distance between the different wires: This is important so that the horse has no room to manoeuvre between conductors.

4. The distance between fence posts: If the distance between posts is too long, the wires will sag too much, reducing safety. The horse may become entangled in these or be unable to break through them if they break out.
The rule of thumb for mobile fences is 3-4 metres, for permanent fences it is 7 to 9 metres.
