A good horse fence keeps animal locked in a designated safe area. This means that your horse will be unharmed strikes, bends over or if it does not work on fence. It must be high enough that it cannot jump easily and close enough to ground that it does not roll beneath it. A minimum height must be on chest of horses. Fencing should also be free of sharp ends or areas where horse could get a trapped foot.
Grazing horses tend to be easier on fencing as they have more space and less time near it. Grazing horses are able to accumulate more speed when they work. Horse fence grazing must be designed some give or break if a horse hits at full speed. Enclosed horses typically have less space and spend more time near fence surrounding them. This means that they will be more difficult in fencing, rubbing or leaning on it and have a greater potential for getting a trapped foot. These factors must be taken into consideration before building.
A popular horse fence is prefabricated fencing tubes, which are welded metal pipes in panels 10 to 12 feet wide, and about 5 or 6 feet high. Together you can set make different sizes of corral fit different spaces. It is possible for a horse to get a foot trapped in this type of fencing so it is necessary to check for integrity regularly.
