Fencing
 
New not sure if this is where you put it. But anyway what kind of fencing do you have? I have 3 big horses then a mini that are horrible at respecting the fence. prices would help too and maybe pictures thanks :)

I've got up woven wire with a hot wire along the top and another hot wire about 18" up from the bottom. No fence challenges at my place! Keeps the kids using the gate too!

Our outer perimeter is 6' chain link with a strand of hot wire to keep them from rubbing, and everything else is Noble brand fencing.

I have 4 strands of white electric rope attached with screw in insulators to treated wood posts. The top and third strands are electrified and the horses don't go near it. I think I have zapped myself far more often than the horses have. Clearly, they have learned to respect it much faster than I have.

Cost, installation and maintenance are all quite low.

We have a 5' high four board fence...Heavy Duty!! like literally, you could keep bulls in there :D but, that's just my Dad's style...Maybe try putting an electric hot wire on your current fencing...? that ought to keep them off it.
