I would get a HOT fence....ours is for 10+ acres of HEAVY brush and is just a small grassy area probably 80ft x 80ft. A friends pony I was working with kept running through it and it is 3 strand with a 2 strand gate....we changed it and OMG did he EVER get lit up. And we had a strong fence before....and it CRACKS so the horses know it is hot when they are standing and can hear it.
I would put electric fence on the inside of your wood fence and see how that works....
Conformation is how far the horse CAN go,
Mind is how far the horse WILL go,
Training is how far it DOES go.
