It really is not a matter of what looks best, but is a matter of practicality. The clips and fence should be on the inside toward the pasture, because if by chance a horse should happen to get into the fence the clips will hold the fence from the inside where as, if placed to the outside of the posts the fence could be pushed loose from the post.
T-post caps are an absolute necessity. There are many a horrible case of horses impaling themselves on uncovered t-posts and also catching a haltered horse on them if a horse goes to scratch an itchy spot on their face.
