Buy 4 ElectroBraid® White Reels, Get 1 FREE 50 Mile Charger (ZarebaSystems.com Exclusive Bundle)
Buy 4 White Reels, Get 1 FREE 50 Mile Charger (ZarebaSystems.com Exclusive Bundle) Horse Fence Conductor Reel will supply you with plenty of material to protect your livestock. It is the main component of the safe, secure and simple all copper electric fence system designed by ElectroBraid® exclusively for horses. ElectroBraid® is the most recommended horse fence by veterinarians for safety.
What is ElectroBraid®?
ElectroBraid® is a permanent electric fence designed especially for horses. It is both a physical barrier and a psychological deterrent. It is highly visible to horses, strong, durable and resilient.
What does it look like?
ElectroBraid® looks like high quality braided yachting rope. A double helix of copper wire conductors is braided into the outer jacket of the rope. 3 or 4 strands of Braid of ¼ inch diameter are mounted on electrical insulators on fence posts. Fence posts can be wood, vinyl, steel or fiberglass, spaced 30 to 50 feet apart. The Braid comes in white, black or speckled.
Why is it new and different?
Traditional electric cattle fencing uses small diameter steel wires which are hard for horses to see. The ropes of ElectroBraid® are highly visible. Their break strength is equal to the steel wire but they are resilient like the ropes in a boxing ring. ElectroBraid® can absorb the energy of a panicked horse at full gallop and will typically bounce the horse back into its pasture with no harm to horse or fence.
How durable is ElectroBraid® Fence?
The high-grade polyester fiber is the same fiber used in automotive seat belts and parachute harnesses. Polyester resists attack by ultra-violet light, salt, manure and most farm chemicals. The copper develops an oxidized outer layer or 'patina' that protects the copper wire from corrosion.
How does it work?
ElectroBraid® Fence is both a physical barrier and a psychological deterrent. Once a horse receives a shock, the horse should not go near the fence again. It won't rub against the fence. It won't crib on it. And it won't try to jump over it or go through it or go under. It doesn't want to get shocked again.
Is the electric shock harmless?
The electric shock from a UL or CSA approved fence energizer is completely harmless. The shock is extremely low amperage for 3/10,000 of a second, once a second. The shock is similar to the static shock you get from touching your TV screen, but more painful. Once shocked, neither you, nor your horse will want to touch the fence again.
How do horses feel about ElectroBraid®?
"Horses love ElectroBraid®!" our customers tell us. Horses are herd animals, born to roam free in wide open spaces. With ElectroBraid® fence, all the horses can see each other and stallions can see their mares. There are no places for predators to hide. Horses don't pace up and down their fence line. Owners say horses are more relaxed. They can see you and you can see them!
Why is the installed cost low?
ElectroBraid® can be self-installed with hand-tools, by almost anyone….like stringing clothes line. A professional fence installer is not required. The Braid costs 16 to 18 cents a foot. Fence posts can be set 30 to 50 feet apart depending on terrain and local snow conditions. By contrast, conventional horse fences require a post every 8 or 10 feet. To relocate your ElectroBraid® fence, you don't need a contractor.
Why is maintenance cost low?
If you properly install your corner and end posts, they won't move. Brass and copper components won't corrode. Horses don't crib on ElectroBraid® or rub against it. Repairs are quick and easily done by hand.
What maintenance is required?
Walk the fence line to confirm your fence has not been damaged. Check the voltage regularly.
How can ElectroBraid® protect an existing fence?
Mount ElectroBraid® as a single strand on top of almost any fence. The psychological deterrence to horses is dramatic.
Why is ElectroBraid® different from other electric fence systems?
- ElectroBraid® is dimensionally stable because of its braided-over-inner-core construction. The braid shrinks back to its original length, even after stretching.
- The copper wire conductors in ElectroBraid® are formed in helical coils like springs. This allows bend and stretch. All tension is taken by the fiber strands. The copper wires won't break up to 600 pounds of tension and cannot break under normal loads.
- Conventional high tensile wire (HTW) electric fence is good for cattle but not for horses. Unlike cattle, horses are excitable, high-strung animals. Horses often don't see the steel fence wires. The wires can break under impact and wrap and cut and puncture flesh.
- Certain electric fence rail systems are especially made for horses. These are worth considering but tend to be expensive to install and may not be as safe as ElectroBraid®.
Why does ElectroBraid® specify accessories of copper, brass
and glass-filled nylon?
Quality…. Quality…. Quality…. It costs a little more but saves a fortune in performance and durability. Brass is an alloy of copper. Glass filled nylon is the strongest available commercial plastic material for insulator construction. Copper and brass are compatible metals. Brass is an alloy of copper. They don't suffer the natural electrolytic corrosion that occurs when dissimilar metals come in contact with each other. Copper does not rust. It develops an oxidized protective coating called a "patina". Next to gold and silver, copper is the best natural conductor of electricity. Copper is 70 times more conductive than steel. Telephone and power companies use only copper wiring.

Review RateGreat horse fence!
I have used Electrobraid for over 10 years. My horses respect the fence, and trust me, I have a mare that will test any fence that she is in. We have recently had to replace some rotten posts and am replacing some of the Electrobraid wire that is showing some wear. It is a great product and very low maintenance. My dogs stay out of the horse pasture, and my horses stay in.
Review RateExcellent product and efficient delivery.
Excellent product and efficient delivery.
Review RateA quality product, economical in the long run and a time saver.
I have been using Electrobraid for over twenty years. Having grown up on a farm where barbed wire was in use, I hated the effort and maintenance involved. The 'Braid' goes up quickly, post spacing is economical of materials and one re-tensioning every few years is sufficient. Our horses and miniature donkeys respect the fence, as does our Border Collie.One of our mares is kind enough to trim under most of the fence, so weed removal is quick. I have never regretted buying this product. My next purchase will be to replace the oldest 'Braid" which has been up for over twenty years.
Review RateProfessional but simple
We installed our Electrobraid fencing with ease. The instructions make it simple. After it's up, it looks professional, visible, and well put together. Both our horses and cattle respect the fence. We are looking to purchase additional rolls in the future. After months of researching several options, we couldn't be happier with our decision on this fence.
Review RateGreat fence
Great fencing and easy to put up
Easy to install. Looks great. Will never use anything else If you could make a crimping connection similar to wire, instead of the copper that needs to be tightened,it would be even be easier and faster
Review RateGreat fence.
This was by far the easiest fence we have ever put up. It took a less than a day after the wood post were set to put up insulators and install the wire. Another couple of hours hooking it to the box and grounding it. It is beautiful and the ponies have already tested it and realized it was to be respected. I can't speak to the long life but so far so good.
Review RateGreat product!
My wife and I love this fence. Its clean, effective, easy to install and low maintenance
Review RateGreat product
Easy to install...we put one strand on top of wire fencing to keep horses from leaning over wire fence....worked great!
Review RateGreat horse fence.
we put up 4 stands of this fence around 4 acres. The fence came quickly, is great quality and went up easily. The fence has been up for 2 weeks now and looks great and is holding tension fine. We didn't make it hot yet because our horse hasn't tested it. I would use this fence again.
