In the 80’s a family in southern Sweden experienced an accident when their horses got scared and panicked through the electric wire fence surrounding their pastures. Wooden poles were broken threatening to spear the horses
The result was shock and despair for the family, leaving their horses with severe pain and injuries. The veterinary costs were substantial risking invalidity and even euthanasia for the horses.
This traumatic event started a discussion and creative process in the family to find a better fencing solution.
The idea to use plastic was there from the start, but classic PVC was then both expensive and less environmentally friendly and sustainable. In the surroundings of the family farm were several farmers and small factories, who all handled different containers of HDPE-plastic. Hence came the plan to use re-used materials.
We love horses and their wellbeing is our number one priority. Our Post and Rail fencing made of HDPE means that it’s as strong as it is flexible. Under impact, it flexes, absorbs the impact and bounces the horse back off it. Stainless steel wire is spherically embedded into the rails under heat and all connections are made inside the posts. This provides the option of an post and rail electric fence to keep horses off the fence, without the danger of exposed wires or tensioning. It’s great to have a safe electric fencing, especially if there is a power outage or a storm.
All the surfaces are smooth and rounded so there are no sharp, pointy corners to cause injury in our electric fence for horses. The fence is highly visible to horses and looks amazing. Our Electric post & rail fencing comes with 10 years guarantee. Smart fit design enables fence posts to be installed on uneven ground. Well-trained EquiSafe representative is able to visit your farm or residence to install the fence in a quick and seamless process.
