High-Quality Fencing for Horses & Livestock
The square footage and terrain of your property, as well as the type of animal you are fencing-in can all play a role in determining the type, weight, and height of pipe fence needed. Our skilled design team is happy to walk you through each step of the fencing process to find the perfect balance of safety, durability, beauty, and affordability for whatever your requirements are. We also provide expert land clearing services if you decide you want to add a new shed as well in your newly fenced in area.
At Payne Acres, we specialize in pipe fencing for horse, expertly installing fences, paddocks, and corrals that stand up to their athleticism. We even offer pipe fencing that comes with horse wire solutions, which have recently grown in popularity because of the effectiveness and cost-efficiency. The heights of pipe fence for horses that Payne Acres installs is not the same as pipe fence used for other livestock. Most of the time, the same rules do not apply to pipe fence for horses, because they are more athletic and more likely to jump a shorter fence than to go through or under it when spooked or herded.
Minimum Fence Height for Horses
The minimum height that we recommend at Payne Acres for perimeter fences for your horses in pasture is 5-feet high (also recommended by Horse Illustrated). A 5-foot pipe fence will deter most horses from trying to jump and will also reduce the temptation for people to reach over the fence to pet or feed horses. Making sure that your horse fence is a minimum of 5 feet high will give you a pipe fence that is safe for both people and horses. (Have more questions? Check out our Pipe Fence FAQ page here!)
Pipe Fence for Horse Paddocks, Stallion Pens, Corrals
If you have paddocks for your horses in the DFW area, (usually smaller than 2 acres), stallion pens and corrals, the general rule is: the top rail of the pipe fence should be at minimum, eye level with your horse’s head in a natural upright position. This is normally 4 to 6 inches above the withers of your horse. This height discourages your horses from fighting over the top fence, while also preventing them from leaning over the pipe fence. That said, the best way to eliminate leaning and rubbing on any fence is by using an offset electric fence wire. Our pipe fence installation teams install these as add-ons when required.
Bottom Clearance of Fence for your Horses
Pipe fences that divide pastures can be 4.5 feet (54 inches) high. The bottom of the fence should be 6 to 8 inches off the ground. This is especially important when you choose pipe fence with “horse wire”, which is a type of wire mesh fence we add below a top rail in one application, since horses are less likely to paw at the fence and more likely to keep the fence line grazed. In addition, weed growth is easier to control along the fence line by either application of herbicides or use of a weed-eater if this clearance is left below the bottom of the fence. It also adds 6 inches of height to the fence at no extra cost.
Payne Acres has installed pipe fence on more than 70 properties in the DFW area and other areas of Texas and Oklahoma, and we’d love to be the pipe fence installation company you choose for the health and safety of your horses.
Below you’ll find some important tips for fencing you should NEVER use for your horses. These non-negotiable stipulations should be the type of fencing. Some fencing is just not safe for horses for any reason;
- Barbed wire – Barbed wire can easily entrap a panicked horse that tries to run through it or jump over it, ripping hide and doing career- and life-ending damage to tendons and other internal structures it exposes.
- Large, square mesh – Square mesh fencing should ideally have openings of no more than 3 inches square; any larger and you risk trapping your horse’s hoof in the fence.
