When trying to decide what type of barriers to put up around grazing spaces for horses, many stable operators and ranch owners choose a plastic horse fence. Reasons for this include the relatively low purchase cost, ease of installation, and the material’s versatility. Also, since it can be manufactured in a number of colors, you have the ability to create unique subsections of fencing barriers based on color. However, the downsides are just as prevalent.
Plastic horse fencing is susceptible to changing weather conditions, either becoming extremely brittle and breaking in cold weather, or warping in extreme heat. This makes it a less than ideal choice for farms in locations where the weather varies drastically from season to season. In either case, you’re going to need to spend time and money on repairs or replacement, which prevents you from scaling at steady rate.
