Horserail is an innovative coated rail and wire horse fence system that combines the patented Horserailâ„¢ technology with premium virgin grade polyethylene and a super strong steel core, making it a safe, secure, and durable alternative to standard horse fencing. Horserail’s smooth surface is designed to flex and slide so that if a horse is to run into, hit, kick or put a leg through the fence then Horserail will bend and flex so that animal will not be injured. Horserail has also developed a special conductive plastic coated wire ‘Hotcoteâ„¢’ that is the perfect solution for a highly visible, permanent electric fence for horses and other animals.
