My horse hasn't been in an electric fenced area before as far as I know.
Once he hit one out on trail and went a little nuts with some bucking and bolting after touching it.
He is in a 24 x 24 pipe stall and will potentially be moving to what seems to be about 2x as big of a pasture with hot wire. I think he will enjoy it there a lot, nice trees and mellow for him being older. I am slightly nervous about the hot fence because I'm not sure how he will handle it mentally. He can jump and could clear it easily if he was fed up with it, but he is also mellow and accepting at his age now and is happy in his home where the food is.
Once he was in a place that had vinyl and managed to pop the rails from the post, it was a 3 rail and he had popped out 2, so near escape! I think the fence was really more decorative than structural though... (he was also in with a baby who was annoying him)
Are horses usually able to sense and adjust to this?
Really looking forward to my horse getting more space but don't want it to be any sort of problem.
