One of my best friends had a ton of draft horses. Her family breeds both Suffolks and American Creams. One of their major pastures has a single wire fence (that may or may not be electric depending on the day) and is just over knee high to me (i'm 5'3") and the horses have NEVER offered to step over it although they easily could.
Another of her pastures has no fence on the rear side and hasn't for years. It's densely wooded and the stallion keeps the herd far from there without issue.
Her home pasture (with the working horses) is a simple 3 wire fence with 1 electric wire on top. A horse is a horse, either they are going to respect the fence or they're not, it's an individual thing not a breed thing.
