The Importance of Proper Equestrian Fencing
September 1, 2017
It’s important to ensure that any type of fencing is made and installed properly, but this is especially true for equestrian fencing. Here are some of the reasons why it’s so important to be sure that your equestrian fencing is properly planned and executed.
Protect your horses
Your horses are likely your beloved pets, as well as an investment. It’s important to make sure that your horses are safely contained, and your fencing needs may vary depending on the number, age, and abilities of your horses, as well as the surrounding landscape.
Horses are very strong animals, and so it’s important to install a fence that is easily visible to them and sturdy enough that they are not able to knock it down if they bump into it.
Mark your property line
If you have horses, you are likely on a ranch or large acreage. Equestrian fencing will help mark the ends of your property so that others are aware not to trespass, as well as keeping your livestock safe.
Increase the value of your property
Proper fencing can increase the value of your ranch or property. It’s best to install a fence that is strong enough to keep in livestock and protect the land, as well as be visually appealing and compliment your home.
Make your life easier
Sometimes, it’s the little things that make a big difference. Something as small as ensuring that gates are secure enough that horses cannot get out, but that they can be easily opened with one hand, can make your chores so much easier. Installing fencing that will not cause potential harm to your horses may avoid future veterinary bills. Strong fencing that cannot be knocked down will prevent your horses from getting out, protecting your investment.
These are just some of the reasons why it’s so important to ensure that you have the proper equestrian fencing for your property. At A & G Fencing, we would be happy to discuss which options would be best for you and your horses.
