Aussie Fence Doctor

Providing you with practical fencing tips and strategies


Is this what you want your horse to see?

It is important that your fence works as a visual barrier for your horse.  What do you see here, what do you think your horse would see as he ran full pelt towards these fences?




Give your horse a chance, they need to see a clearly defined barrier.  There are several wires, tapes and rails available to you but bear in mind that the fence also has to have some form of flexibility to minimise the risk of injury to your horse.
