monofilament horse fencing with electric

monofilament horse fencing with electric... Would you use that type of fencing for a 80x60ft drylot? I really need to decide. Sorry for asking so many fencing questions.

I don't see why not, but I think you still want to run a strand of electric (rope/tape/wire) along the top. Horses will lean on any fence w/o electric to keep them off it.

gimmick, put up electrified high tension cable and be done with it. Other than that I would use the 1/4" electric braid.

no idea what makes a dry lot fence any different than any other fence.

My horse just got "smart" knows where there is electricity and where there isnt any. I want a physical barrier to keep him in when the electricity is off. I have been chasing him around the whole place when he got out a few times!

I suppose it's a smaller space.

Links to another forum with people talking about it-
Finish Line fencing? [Archive] - Chronicle Forums

Finish Line is the same thing I think-
Finish Line Fencing: Safe Horse Fencing, Simply the BEST horse fencing for under 16 cents per foot!

Threads on Finish Line-
Finish Line fence, opinions - Horsetopia Forum
NC Horse News Message Board - Bayco Fencing, Finish Line? Experience

I think it sounds nice with no wire and such but still being strong, but I would put up a thin strand of electric polywire up (like thin electric rope) to keep the horses off it.
