What does your horse fencing look like?

I'm trying to decide between getting panels or just making a sturdy horse fence. I need some ideas .. What does your horse fence look like/materials.

^^^ LOL. My horses would laugh their way under that.

Well, 1 for sure would. My girls have been kept in plastic push in posts and one strand of non-hot electric and never had a problem.

My mom's Curly on the other hand, sneaks his way out of three strand, taunt, hot wire without breaking it. And this boy can't jump. At all. Not even six inches.

We have metal t posts, three strand hot electric wire. 4 Sections of pasture and ally-way with 6" round wood posts and hot wire. Its a nice set up. Gives ample time for rotation of pasture and looks really good. Up front by the barn we have a small wooden fenced lot.

I'm proud of our setup. I'll have to remember to post pictures.

Thanks for the replies I think we are going to use t posts and either horse wire or hot wire. Its inexpensive too.

Pinkbow, t-posts and wire work fine for most, but you'll likely need more than just the one strand that I "hang up." It depends on the number of horses and the horses' personalities, and even who's boss.

If you use tape, remember that it is not meant to be strung tightly (though probably a bit better than mine); it is intended to move in the wind a bit. My next fencing purchase will probably be electric rope for use when I am overnighting.

Good luck.

Just one strand of electric polyrope 3' high with posts 30' apart is all we need for our mares. They all grew up with electric, don't mess with it, and none have every gone under, over, or through it.

Panels eventually get in the way and are just not a good idea - trust me, I've had it before and they are just a pain.
I would definitely vote for a more sturdier fence.

I have horse fencing (the little square like fencing so they can't climb it) with a rail on the top so they can't push on the fencing. Just like this picture, but my top rails are round not flat

I've got a bit of both. Around my bigger pasture, I've got 2 strands of electric tape

Around my smaller paddock, I've got one strand of tape, but it's wider and stronger than what I've got elsewhere

And for the runs (10ft x 30ft) I've got in the barn, I've got panels. There is no doubt that they last longer and look better and are sturdier than other forms of fencing, but they are also more expensive and a heck of a lot harder to move. Each panel weighs about 60 pounds. I can move them myself, but it's very tough to get them hooked together and set up all alone.
