I have electric rope, an affordable brand. I like the visibility, the flexibility and the aesthetic. Have had horses blow through my cross fence without harm to themselves, and only toasting a few insulators each time. Easy to repair by hand, too, as it's only hand-tensioned.
I live in Cananda, have snow knee-high right now, and successfully run one stand, though it's simply there to keep them off the neighbour's fences. I really find that with enough room (not over-horsing my acreage) and enough food, they don't want to wander in winter, anyhow. Of course, our cleared pasture is also surrounded by bush... Not mich visual stimulation on the other side of the fence. All our high-traffic zones like the gate are also post & rail with the electric to keep them from pushing on it.
