HorseGuard recommends to set the posts at a maximum of 16 ft apart.
In windy areas the spacing of the posts can vary between 8 ft up to 12 ft.

What Horseguard has done to counteract the strong winds problem and increase the longevity of your fence since we invented the tape was:

  • To drastically increase the thickness of the filaments (metal and polyethylene) creating a very sturdy tape and a combination of open weave.

  • To recommend PUTTING TENSIONERS AT CORNERS AND GATES to exert a strong tension of the tape! Unless the tape is very tight it will flex in the wind, eventually snapping the stainless steel filaments and breaking the electric flow.
  • To recommend the USE OF HORSEGUARD INSULATORS that secure the tape preventing it from wiggling into them, and thus avoiding wear and tear.
  • DO NOT RECOMMEND TO TWIST THE TAPE to prevent it from flapping in the wind it will end up cutting the stainless steel threads.

Our electric fence tape for horses let the wind pass through the tape that stays quiet in the wind;
This picture taken in a 40 mile per hour wind shows the HorseGuard tape holding steady (above) and a poor quality brand tape flapping below?
I have been using your fence for years now and it has been moved several times to many different sites. The webbing has lasted maybe 7 years now and the insulators have been moved at least 5 times now. I want to put more now. Thanks for a great product at very affordable prices.
