Electric Fencing

An electric fence has many advantages over a conventional fence. Electric fencing consists of an electrical device, a conductor, posts, insulators and earthing.

An electric fence is a closed loop system. Using an energizer to provide power, which travels around via the wire (or cord or tape depending on your preference). When an animal like a horse or pony comes into contact with the electric fence they get a safe, but noticeable shock. As a resul, the animal will then see the fence as a barrier and will stay away from the fence.

After an animal has made contact with the fence, the power will be transmitted from the animal and return via the earth rods of the earthing system to the energizer. Proper earthing by professionals is very important as the power has to be able to flow back to the energizer in order to keep the loop system closed.

If the earthing system is not adequate, the closed loop system will be unreliable.

It is essential to ensure the electric fencing is properly fitted for it to function correctly, and above all safely.
