Combining a traditional look with the practicality of electric fencing, Equi-Safe embeds an electric wire in the rail portion of its post-and-rail high-density, polyethylene plastic (HDPE) fencing to help stop your horse from getting caught in a wire and eliminating the need to tighten wires. A recent redesign allows the posts to be spaced eight feet apart (as opposed to the 5.5-foot spread previously possible). According to the manufacturer, the material won’t crack or split, even in extreme temperatures, and is mold- and fade-resistant. Available in two-, three-, and four-rail styles, in black or white; custom colors are also available.
Cost: $7-$11 per linear foot. Contact: Equi-Safe, (877) 378-4723 [EQUISAFE]; www.equisafe.com.
