Personally, I don't think horses and electric fencing are a good combo. I would never fence my horses with electric fencing, espically if they were young. If you do use it, I would only use it a the top of the fence. I have seen horror scars on horses that have been entangled in electric fencing. The hair will not grow back and depending on the vaultage, it can damage the skin so it looks kind of scabby.
Have you looked into fencing from tsc? I don't know what it is called, but it is the square pattern fencing, and they have some designed specifically for horses. And it is designed to minimize injury if a horse does run into it.
