ELECTROBRAID® HORSE FENCING PRODUCTS
ElectroBraid® is a permanent electric horse fence designed especially for horses. It is both a physical barrier and a psychological deterrent. It is highly visible to horses, strong, durable and resilient.
ElectroBraid® looks like high quality braided yachting rope. A double helix of copper wire conductors is braided into the outer jacket of the electric fence rope. 3 or 4 strands of Braid™ of ¼ inch diameter are mounted on insulators on fence posts. Horse fence posts can be wood, vinyl or steel, spaced 30 to 50 feet apart. The Braid™ comes in white, checkered, or black.
Traditional electric horse fence uses small diameter steel wires, which are hard for horses to see. The ropes of ElectroBraid® are highly visible. ElectroBraid® can absorb the energy of a panicked horse and will typically bounce the horse back into its pasture with no harm to horse or fence.
“Horses love ElectroBraid® !” our customers tell us. Horses are herd animals, born to roam free in wide-open spaces. With ElectroBraid® fence, all the horses can see each other and stallions can see their mares. There are no places for predators to hide. Horses don’t pace up and down their fence line. Owners say horses are more relaxed. They can see you and you can see them!
ElectroBraid® has the resilience and the strength to resist the impact of a stallion – it just stretches, and then springs back. It is secure because, unlike conventional board horse fencing, ElectroBraid® shocks a horse. The horse doesn’t understand what happened – it just knows it wants to stay clear in future. A horse has never voluntarily jumped any ElectroBraid® Fence, to our knowledge.
