Stupid questions I know, I have not much of in idea about fencing !
If you are not going to make the wire hot then you will have to run hose or tubing over the entire length of the wire, no matter how many strands you run.
The horse(s) will reach through with head to get to grass on the other side or get a hoof caught on it as they stomp at it to get through and risk slicing and dicing as they pull back to get free from the wire.
If you are not wanting a wooden fence rail then I suggest running pipe railing with wooden post if you are stuck on wooden post. Hth
