ElectroBraid® Electric Fencing Line - Black

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.

  • 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

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.

  • ¼ 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.
  • Coiled conductor strands reduce breakage from weather and stress.
  • Wide profile limits the line’s ability to cut into the horse.

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.

Electrobraid rope with copper.
Jun 2, 2022
We have been very happy with our thirty years plus Electrobraid rope with copper fence. Although it is just to brittle to get copper to conduct electric anymore.

My favorite fence!
Aug 24, 2021
Fantastic alternative to wood or wire mesh fencing solutions. It's high quality, lightweight and easy to install, relatively low maintenance, and looks great since it never droops! Best of all, I don't have to worry about any sharp edge hazards or puncture wounds on my horses.

Good product
May 23, 2016
Good product, shipped VERY quickly. The fence is hot and the horses respect it. Long term will see how it holds up, but so far I prefer it over the stainless steel alternative I was using at prior residence. Will continue to fence rest of my paddocks with this as time allows.

Ramm Review - ElectroBraid® 1000 ft. Reel (White)
Apr 8, 2013
We have three strand Electrobraid fencing with a board on the top, on wooden posts, to keep our horses contained. Living in central Virginia, we were in the path of the Derecho that came through in late June. We had some damage around the house that we cleaned up immediately, and unplugged our fence charger even though the power was off (for 9 days as it turned out). It was 5 days later that we were able to check the last of the fence line for damage. When the trees fell on the fence, the tree forced the Electrobraid to the ground, in some places over 6 feet from where it was supposed to be. After working on the spot for 2 hours with a chain saw and a string trimmer, as soon as the trees were off of the braid, it returned to its proper position. We had numerous insulators that needed to be replaced, but we didn't even have to retighten the braid itself. We are still waiting for the board to spring back into position.ha ha (that wont ever happen) I was very impressed with the resilience of the Electrobraid. What a great product.

Amazon Review - ElectroBraid® 1000 ft. Reel (Black)
Oct 20, 2012
I am a horse trainer and I work in vet med; and I have seen many horse fence related accidents. I have seen too many horses euthanized due to other fencing. I bought this to prevent injury to MY horses. In my (and many equine veterinarians opinion); electrobraid is the safest horse fence. Injuries are more rope burn like with elecrobraid where as lacerations, tendon and muscle lacerations, paralysis and nerve damage, and wire entanglements are common injuries to wire or wood fencing. The white is MUCH more visible but I bought the black and have 4 lines up and love it. The black goes nicely with my house and palm trees. I have solar lights at night on the posts and it it beautiful. It is easy to put up and I can change or add on to this fence easily- in a matter of hrs and cheaply. I only have two horses in it and the blacks low visibility could be a problem if I had more horses but I like the look and I have no problems. They respect it. I can easily move lines which are hot lines too; allowing easy pass for the neighbors dog to come and go if I want -or don't want. I would caution using all black with more horses as they would be more likely to be working out their pecking order and need a more visible fence.

Amazon Review - ElectroBraid® 1000 ft. Reel (Black)
Aug 12, 2012
This stuff is great. Goes up very easy and the horses respect it. My horses are older so I don't have to keep electric on it but it is very forgiving when they bump into it. Has been up for over a year with no fading or sag, even after a Ohio winter. Holds up nice when branches fall on it. Just pick them up off the fence and it goes right back into position. I am putting up another 1500 feet on my front pasture. We like that you can see through it from a distance and get a nice view of the horses grazing. Ps. Also holds up nice to deer running into it

A good choice - Originally posted on TractorSupply.com
Apr 29, 2012
We've had our pasture fenced with electrobraid since October 2011 and are very pleased with it. We chose to put up round posts conventionally but at 35 rather than 50 foot intervals. The wire went up easily and, with the tensioners (get 2) the whole field ended up uniformly tight. What I like most is that you can easily add temporary fences and electrify them just by tapping on the existing fence. My only complaint is that the post insulators and copper connectors seem over priced for the number you get. Otherwise this system has been a good investment for safely fencing in our horses.
