When you need portable electric and temporary fencing for your horses, look no further than the Fi-Shock® Portable Paddock (HC-100).

Polytape is a lightweight, highly visible fencing material that is perfect for temporary fencing for horses. Polytape is easy to repeatedly spool and unspool, and it doesn’t warp or sag the way other materials do. Despite being light enough to carry from event to event, Polytape is thick and bright, making it easier for horses to see. This expedites the training process and helps your animals avoid accidentally touching it when in an unfamiliar location.
Why Electric Fencing Is the Best Choice for Your Horses
Many horse owners worry that electrified fencing will harm their animals. In fact, when used properly, electric fencing forms a purely psychological barrier. The HC-100’s Polytape temporary fencing produces a mild current that your animal will quickly learn to avoid by sight. As opposed to physical containment methods like barbed wire, electric fencing offers less of a chance your animal will be accidentally hurt.
The HC-100 includes a grounding spike and an insulated lead wire to ensure proper setup and operation. Connect one end of the lead wire to the fence charger and the other to the spike. Drive the spike into the ground within 20 feet of the charger. This will create a complete circuit that delivers a reliable charge when your horse comes into contact with it.
