Structural pipe is the perfect material for horse fencing because of its strength and durability. It can also be cut to custom lengths to suit your horse-fencing needs. Structural pipe can also be more affordable than wooden fences as it doesn’t need to be replaced over time.
The recommended height for horse fencing is five feet as horses are more athletic and more likely to jump a fence than to go through or under it when spooked or herded. A five-foot fence built of structural pipe is both horse-safe and people-safe.
The general rule for horse pens or paddocks and corrals is that the top of the fence should be at eye level with the horse's head in a natural upright position. This five-foot height will discourage fighting over the horse fence and help prevent horses from leaning over the structural pipe fence.
