Electric Horse Fence
The electric horse fence is one of most effective horse fencing methods for one simple reason: it offers the same kind of natural response that large animals are accustomed to in the herd environment. Horses respect the bite, kick, and nip from a more dominant horse. The electric fence provides that "nip" and teaches horses to respect the barrier. The "bite" that the horse feels from these fencing systems is short-lived and doesn't physically harm them.
RAMM customers choose electric fencing systems due to its versatility, cost-effectiveness, and dependability. Electric horse fencing is one of the most economical horse fencing options available. It can help prevent wear-and-tear on other horse fencing systems, teach horses to respect the electric fence line or create a safer environment when two paddocks share a common fence. Many horse owners create a safer, longer lasting fence with the use of electricity.
We offer a variety of different electric horse fencing systems. Our customer's favorite is RAMM's Shockline Flex Fence® electric coated high-tensile wire. Shockline is constructed with class-3 12.5-gauge steel wire covered with a polyethylene coating and 3 conductive carbon strips. This electric fence has 1,400 pounds of break strength per rail and is the strongest electric fence RAMM carries. It is available in white, black and brown and comes with a 20-year Limited Warranty.

No matter what fencing option you consider, it's important to remember that horses are wild animals and their behavior can be unpredictable. Although electric horse fencing is a safer alternative to fencing options of the past (high-tensile wire, barbed wire, board fencing), there is no totally safe fence. Accidents can happen with any fencing product, and that's why following installation instructions and manufacturer's suggestions are so important. Do everything you can to set up your fencing correctly, and you will greatly reduce the risk of injury to your horses.
