ElectroBraid® 1,000 Foot Reel Electric Fencing Line ElectroBraid® is a permanent electric fence line designed especially for horses. It serves as a physical barrier and as a psychological deterrent. It keeps horses away from fencing, prevents them from leaning on it and chewing on it. You can install ElectroBraid® with wood fence posts or T-posts, or as a complement to vinyl fences. ElectroBraid® is SAFE, SECURE and SIMPLE.
ElectroBraid® is durable, resilient and backed by an exclusive 25-year limited warranty. This fence line has been safety tested and is recommended for use with horses by equine veterinarians. Each reel carries 1,000 feet of fence line, which is available in checkered, black or white designs. ElectroBraid® features a double helix copper design that includes a braided, UV-resistant polyester fiber jacket over a polypropylene core.
What is ElectroBraid®? ElectroBraid® looks like high-quality braided yachting rope with a ¼-inch thickness. Though soft to the touch, ElectroBraid® features a double helix of copper wire conductors that has been braided into the outer jacket of the rope, which allows it to conduct electricity. With this innovative construction, your fence line is far safer than nearly any other type of fencing for horses. It stretches, rather than breaks, when horses test it, which keeps the animals inside the fence boundaries.
Create an effective, attractive and easy-to-maintain fence by attaching 3 or 4 strands of ElectroBraid® to fence posts spaced 30 to 50 feet apart (compared to conventional horse fences like wire which require a post every 8 or 10 feet). Fence posts can be wood, vinyl or steel, and ElectroBraid® is available in white, black or black/white checkered.ElectroBraid® Keeps Horses Safe The most frequent cause of serious horse injuries is collision with a rigid fence. ElectroBraid® designed its fencing to minimize this danger. As a result, ElectroBraid® line is the most recommended horse fence for safety by equine veterinarians.
ElectroBraid® Close-Up ElectroBraid® takes all the best aspects of other fencing types and adapts them for use with horses. The result? A better fence for horses.
- No impact injuries
- No sharp points, hard edges, or wires that can cut or puncture
- Specially engineered to break if a horse gets caught around one ElectroBraid® strand
Physical & Psychological Barrier Unlike rigid fences, ElectroBraid® is forgiving. It has the resilience and the strength to resist the impact of a galloping stallion. It just stretches, and then springs back, “bouncing” the horse back into the enclosed area, much like what happens to a boxer in the ring. Horses also learn to respect the electric shock delivered by an ElectroBraid® fence system and will not go near the fence after receiving that first shock. While harmless, the brief shock is painful and deters horses from wanting to jump over, rub against or chew on the fence.How to Install ElectroBraid® ElectroBraid® can be self-installed easily with hand-tools, by almost anyone – It’s like stringing clothes line. A professional fence installer is not required. Fence posts can be set 30 to 50 feet apart depending on terrain and are tensioned to avoid sagging over time. By contrast, conventional horse fences like wire require a post every 8 or 10 feet. To relocate your ElectroBraid® fence, you don't need a contractor, either – just move your posts and restring.
- 1/4-inch line is easy for horses to see and avoid.
- Fencing absorbs impact and pushes horses back.
- Copper strands conduct electricity four times faster than steel.
- No fence line tensioning required.
- Coiled conductor strands reduce breakage from weather and stress.
- Wide profile limits the line's ability to cut into the horse.

Here’s just one question.QUESTION: How can ElectroBraid® protect an existing fence?ElectroBraid®'s Answer: Mount ElectroBraid® as a single strand on top of almost any fence. The psychological deterrence to horses is dramatic. Dell Hendricks, an NHRA Reining Champion, had a stallion that regularly jumped his pipe and cable fence to impregnate a neighbor's mares. When a single strand of ElectroBraid® was added, the stallion never jumped the fence again.TOOLS & ACCESSORIES FOR YOUR FENCE Your ElectroBraid® fence requires many of the standard components for a typical electric fence installation.

Review RateEastern Kentucky Horse Farm
we have had this for about 2 years. we had a straight line wind event drop 4 trees right on the line, it broke the insulators but the line was perfectly intact. if we had wood fencing it would have been obliterated. we reset the fence and it works just as before. also its easy to install once you get the posts in the ground. I bought extra just for temporary fencing too. great product and it looks better than any other electric fence I have seen. its clear looking and the horses respect it (get the right charger and ground rods). 4 out of 5, the only thing I would change is that it does require retightening especially as the weather (temperature) shifts.
Review RateNOT AS SAFE AS ADVERTISED!
I installed this on 25+ acres of horse farm. Had our first horse kick at the fence yesterday getting his leg behind one wire. Fence is installed exactly as it should be and the roller did not break causing sever injuries to the lower leg. Horse might not recover. Would not suggest this fence to anyone! Most hot wire or tape would have broke but this did not. It stretched out and pulled off 6 line post insulators but didn’t break causing the rope to slice right into the tendons on the front of the hock. Please don’t fall for the safety gimic, go with wood. I wish I could add a picture but if you’ve seen a horse get a hind leg caught in wire this is similar.Response From Zareba®Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateExcellent product
We have used Electrobraid for over 15 years - and can recommend it - IF I ever have board fence again, it will have electrobraid on the inside to keep the chewers away from it!
Review RateMaintenance free fence
We've had our fence for about 2 years. The fence very resilient to limbs that fall on it, no repairs involved, only cut the fallen limbs and it goes right back to it's original position. The horses never get into it, after their initial contact with it. We love this fence.
