You obviously won't know for sure unless you try it, but in my experience if the electric provides a good zap, they won't mess with it after getting zapped 1 or 2 times.
Walk your horse in hand around the fence line to show him the boundary. Some folks put streamers on the wire to make it more visible, too.
Put him in the electric area early in the day so you can keep an eye on him while it's light outside, and if he's going to be out 24x7, putting him up in a corral/paddock the first few nights can ease worries about having to find a missing or injured horse in the morning.
On the sixth day, God created the Quarter Horse.
On the seventh day, he Painted the good ones.
