There are a few options to think about when it comes to paddock fencing and Norton’s Fencing can assist with not only erecting the fences but the design and planning too.
All of our materials are pressure creosoted to ensure long standing durability against insect attacks and rot. One of our main priorities is to ensure that our client’s horses are kept safe.
Post and Rail Fencing
Post and rail is the traditional look for equestrian fencing, erected in 2, 3 or 4 rail with a choice of 1.8m or 2.4m bays. Posts are mechanically driven into the ground for a strong and sturdy structure.
X-Net and Keepsafe
X-Net or keepsafe fencing is great for large paddocks and securing boundaries. It is one of the strongest and most durable options due to it’s woven wire structure. It is designed to have a smooth finish to prevent injury and chaffing.
Erected with a 150 x 38 top rail on 100 – 125 cundie posts or 125 x 100 square posts
We understand that stallions require a safe and secure paddock. Therefore, we erect a taller fence standing at 1.8 metres upwards. Boarding, keepsafe or post and rail fencing can all be used depending on your preference.
Boarded corners are great for shelter, security and safety on steep hills and sharp corners. They can also be put in place on nursery paddocks to help catch foals. We use either 6×1 boards or palisade fencing.
The right type of paddock gate is essential for putting the finishing touches to your enclosures both aesthetically and practically. All of our gates are purpose built to withstand frequent use and provide security.
No paddock is complete without a water trough to keep your horses well hydrated. We can install water troughs from 3ft up to 6ft with a surrounding structure for protection and stability.
If you are in need of more then creosoted fencing, we can supply and erect electric wire, rope or tape. This is becoming an increasingly popular demand for equine sites due to its good value and low maintenance.
