Introducing your horse to electric wire fencing
We are putting electric wire on my fencing for the first time in my horses life. My gelding decided that since he was a champion jumper and not the old, lazy guy he has always been, it has become a necessity. However, I am not sure how to introduce both my horses to this. I am not too comfortable being on the other end of a lead rope as they get zapped for the first time, in case they go ballistic. But I also don't want him to never get zapped and try to jump the fence again. We also raised it up about a foot, but he WAY cleared the fence the first time, and not sure if he could clear this. How do I go about making sure they KNOW it will zap them, without ME introducing it to them?
