Fence Pass Through Designs.
 
I am looking for information regarding the design of pass through type openings in equestrain fencing. The type I am looking for is a "U" configuration, with the fence aligned into the middle of the "U". The design allows human passage, but will not allow a horse to pass through. The design contains no closing or opening of a barrier such as a swing gate. Any help would be appreciated!:D

Pass Thur Gates
 
Gamecock67, the easiest is a V- style it is simple to make and easier to use.

looks like this -> allows pedestrians to walk through without hassling with gates.

The only thing you change when you are building the fence is leaving the area where you want the pass thru open, then continue on with your fencing.

It should look like this ----->-----

Whether or not you make it a V or a U shape is up to you obviously. I personally like the U shape a bit better, just because it seems to look harder for a horse to get through it!

All that is really extra to it, is the extra post holes that need augered, but it should be built the same as the rest of your fencing to blend in.

Sorry, I couldnt find any templates on the internet via google....

Thanks for the reply. I knew the "Y" configuration could be used with cattle, but was not sure of its effectiveness with narrower bodied horses. It is a lot easier to construct than the "U", so I will probably try it and see how it performs.
