fence idea

My wife and I have 11 acres of fenced in pasture. It has good fencing but not good looking or the safest for horses. It was built for cows. Basically it is the heavy gauge wire mesh with a strand of hot wire. I'm not planning on tearing it down. After all it is perfectly servicable. I do however have a section about 50 ft long that needs some work. I was throwing the idea around of starting to change the fence over to a nice good looking fence. i really like the Preifert Ponderosa fencing. Basically it is wood posts with metal pipe rails. Looks great but the are proud. About 9 dollars a linear ft for 3 rail.

No-Weld, All-Steel, and Powder Coated Rails with Treated Decorative Posts - Ponderosa Wood Post Fence
Heres my idea. What if I used my existing posts. they are 20 ft apart. Stuck another post in the middle , making it 10 ft on center. Then instead of metal piping use a heavy weight, 2 inch pvc pipe and the existing hot wire. I think that would look good , Im just not sure it would be stout enough. My horses don't mess with the fence since I put up the hot wire. Just trying to get some opinions. I would think it would be about as strong as the pvc fence rails and the posts would be a heck of alot stronger.
