If you're going to use electric rope fence, I encourage you to check it regularly and keep it taut. If the rope is kept tight, it works well. But if a horse gets a foot wrapped in it (such as kicking through it or rolling into it) it won't break easily and can really injure a horse. So keeping it tight is really important. Even Electrobraid cautions horse owners that for a safe fence, 3 or more strands must be used on well braced end and corner posts... and it must be kept tight and charged.
