We use welded wire, but only backed up against wooden fencing, never alone. We pull it extremely taunt and are careful to upkeep it. Otherwise it sags, starts to break, and crumples into a very big mess that can easily hurt a horse. The one time we did use welded wire by itself with capped T-posts, the gelding tried to jump it, got caught, and pretty much hung himself by three legs until I found him a few hours later. He had multiple cuts (non deep, thank goodness) and very sore legs for the next few weeks. It could easily have been much worse, but he was trained to give to pressure and did not struggle.
