SIX COMMON QUESTIONS ABOUT ELECTROBRAID™
Q: What is ElectroBraid™?
ElectroBraid™ is a permanent electric fence designed especially for horses. It is both a physical barrier and a psychological deterrent. It is highly visible to horses, strong, durable, and resilient.
Q: How does it work?
Once a horse receives a painful shock the horse will not go near the fence again. It won't rub against the fence. It won't crib on it. And it won't try to jump over it, or go through it, or go under. It doesn't want to get shocked again.
Q: How durable is ElectroBraid™ Fence?
The high-grade polyester fiber is the same fiber used in automotive seat belts and parachute harnesses. Polyester resists attack by ultraviolet light, salt, manure, and most farm chemicals. The copper develops an oxidized outer layer or 'patina' that protects the copper wire from corrosion. The ElectroBraid™ carries a 25-year warranty.
Q: What makes ElectroBraid™ a safe horse fence?
There are no impact injuries. There are no sharp points or hard edges. There are no boards to break or splinter. There are no wires to cut or puncture. Horses crib on board fences and rub against it. Even minor cuts can become seriously infected. The worst potential injury with ElectroBraid™ is if a horse is able to wrap a strand of Braid™ completely around a rear leg and struggles. The prospect of such an accident can be virtually eliminated by wiring, and grounding, the fence correctly, by keeping the Braid™ taut.
Q: Why is maintenance cost low?
If you properly install your corner and end posts, they won't move. Brass and copper components won't corrode. Occasionally, an insulator might break and need replacement. Little else will need repair. For some reason, lightning rarely touches ElectroBraid™ - if it does, a few hundred feet of ElectroBraid™ may need replacement, and perhaps an energizer. If a tree falls on the fence, cut it off and the Braid™ will spring right back. The fence is seldom (if ever) damaged by storms, including ice storms and tornadoes. Repairs are quick and easily done by hand.
Q: What maintenance is required?
Walk the fence line to confirm your fence has not been damaged. Check for damaged voltage regularly. Once or twice a year, mow weeds from under your fence. In the spring, make sure no fence posts have been heaved by frost.

- - "We have three strand Electrobraid fencing with a board on the top, on wooden posts, to keep our horses contained. Living in central Virginia, we were in the path of the Derecho that came through in late June. We had some damage around the house that we cleaned up immediately, and unplugged our fence charger even though the power was off (for 9 days as it turned out). It was 5 days later that we were able to check the last of the fence line for damage. When the the trees fell on the fence he tree has forced the Electrobraid to the ground, in some places over 6 feet from where it was supposed to be. after working on the spot for 2 hours with a chainsaw and a string trimmer. As soon as the trees were off of the braid, it returned to its proper position. We had numerous insulators that needed to be replaced, but we didn't even have to retighten the braid itself. We are still waiting for the board to spring back into position.haha (that won't ever happen) I was very impressed with the resilience of the Electrobraid. What a great product."- We have had two strands of ElectroBraid on our summer pasture for about 14 years and have not had to repair it once. We occasionally have to fix the plastic holders that attach it to the fence posts due to the deer breaking them. We also have it around our year-round paddock and have had to replace a few strands over the years due to the wear from the corner post holders we have. In all, I am very happy with the product and have been very happy not to spend hours each summer fixing wire electric fencing! I would highly recommend, especially after such long-term use.- "I have been around horses and fences all my life and this is by far the best fence I have ever used. Easy to install, has been near maintenance free and contains livestock. Had trees fall on it and as soon as the tree was removed it went right back to where it should with no need to tension. I am going to be installing it around 10 more acres and wouldn't consider a different fence. I recommend it to everyone I talk with about fencing. I strongly recommend putting it up as they recommend and you will not have to worry about it for years."- "We love the fence and how easy it went up. It looks great." - Bethany, SC- "This is the best fence for the money and my budget! Just love it and the horses respect this fence."
