Other boarders Horse breaking into my field all the time.

Ok so I board at a self care facility. My horses have a stall connected to a small paddock that leads out throught the round pen and into their pasture.
The problem is we have electric tape separating our field and the other boarders field. And one of her horse is constantly getting into our field, and my horses are scared to death of him. We can't make the electric tape Hot because it's tied to the round pen(we have no other option) as far as where to tie it. So then the whole round pen would be electric (Not good)

Today I went down the barn four times and all four times he had gotten back in our field. I i tightened the tape each time and He just keeps pushes right under it. There are three strands of tape.

It has to be something movable because the BO drives a truck through there sometimes to get to his equipment.

I'm so annoyed, and the BO won't let us put a gate because he says there are too many gates.

Today I saw him getting ready to do it again so I grabbed my lunge whip and whipped it at him (didn't hit him but made a loud noise) and he took off runnning. I dont want this pony in my field because he charges and has no mannors and isn't worked with (he's 25 and very spunky)

Any suggestions?!?!

Use insulators to tie the fence to the roundpen. Then it won't charge the roundpen and short out the fence.
