Horse fencing from Tornado Wire
When selecting equestrian fencing, horse owners need a solution that is high quality, secure and horse-friendly. Secure, horse-friendly fencing from Tornado is trusted by the equestrian industry. While timber post and rail may be a popular option, it can rapidly turn into an on-going maintenance issue that could prove both highly expensive and hazardous to horses. Horse fencing often has a multi-functional role to play. It has to securely contain horses and any other animals, while preventing domestic animals from entering the paddock.
Points to consider
Torus wire horse fencing
We understand that selecting the type of fence that will contain your horse is an important decision. Fencing for horse fits broadly into one of the following four categories. Timber post and rail is the traditional paddock fence, but needs regular maintenance as it is susceptible to cribbing by horses. Electric fencing is a good temporary solution, but again regular maintenance is required. Polymer rail systems, such as the Centaur HTP® horse fence, provide a traditional look with the benefit of low maintenance, but are not suitable to use where there are other animals grazing. Tornado Wire’s Torus horse fencing is manufactured from high tensile steel wire; it provides the ideal balance of safety and security and the specifications available can cater for horses of all sizes. Tornado Torus horse fence provides a range of permanent low maintenance solutions for containing your horse and any other animals that may also share their pasture. We recommend a double fence in situations where horses are present on both sides.
Vertical wire spacings from 50mm provide optimum strength and security while the small, unobtrusive Torus knot eliminates sharp edges, reducing the risk of injury to your horses or damage to expensive rugs
Horse fencing often has to play a multifunctional role, not only securely containing your horse and any other animals who share their grazing, but also deterring domestic animals, such as dogs, from entering the paddock.
Timber post and rail fences and temporary electric fencing both need regular maintenance to ensure they stay effective. Tornado Torus horse fencing is strained tight and stays tight, meaning minimal maintenance is required.
Depending on its position, we recommend adding either Centaur HTP® or White Lightning® to increase the visibility of the fence. This is particularly important when not following an existing fence line.
Where paddocks are divided and there is a possibility that horses could be on both sides of the fence, we recommend double-fencing with at least three metres between the two fences. Alternatively, off-set electric brackets can be used to enhance the fence. Centaur HTP® and White Lightning® are both popular choices for dividing fences.
Polymer rail horse fencing
Centaur High Tensile Polymer is the original Centaur fencing system. The product features three 2.5mm High Tensile wires coated with an HTP polymer, and incorporates a patented insulated ‘belt loop’ bracket with a steel core which the rail slips through to disperse the effects of any sudden impact. Centaur is perfect for perimeters, race tracks, arenas, walkways, corrals and other dividing fences. Another Centaur horse fencing option is available as well, that incorporates electric fencing into the design. Hot-Rail® is an innovative fencing product that combines the patented Centaur HTP® technology with electric fencing, significantly improving the appearance and lifespan of electric fencing products currently available. Centaur fencing can be used in conjunction with other horse fencing where required, in a variety of height and configuration options to suit different height and visibility requirements.
White Lightning® is a highly visible permanent electric fence engineered for durability and resistance to wear. White Lightning® installs like High Tensile wire but offers far greater protection to horses. Any number of line wires can be installed and, similarly to the Centaur products, White Lightning horse fencing can be used in conjunction with other varieties of horse fencing to improve height, visibility or additional security. Various tools and components are used to safely and correctly install White Lightning horse fencing, including fencing lassos and wooden post insulators.
