Well fenced and gated paddocks keep horses safe and secure, confine them to certain areas, and give them the opportunity to exercise, graze, and socialise.
A safe horse fence is strong, highly visible, durable, and free of hazards. Ideally, a fence should appear as a solid barrier so the horse will be less likely to challenge it or run into it. If a horse does run into the fence, the fence should not cause injury.
In addition to being safe and secure, you need to consider investing in low maintenance fencing, doing it right the first time will save you time and money later.
A timber post and rail system is the most popular choice amongst horse owners and is available from local timber merchants and fencing specialists such as Walford Timber Ltd. Pay particular attention to your fence posts and make sure they are incised and pressure treated to extend their life once installed. The best, such as our PermaTimber offer you a 15-year product guarantee as standard. Also, make sure any posts cut to size are retreated with a specialist preservative to improve their performance.
In addition to stocking everything you need and being able to give you advice on what materials to use, if you don’t fancy doing the work yourself, ask about being put in touch with our local specialist installer network, who will do everything for you.
