What post spacings do you recommend?

We recommend post spacings between 3-5 metres. Conventional post and rail fencing has post spacings between 2-3 metres. Therefore, with Horserail you have less upright posts which reduces the number of attachments required.

Can I build this myself?

Yes! This is a common Horserail FAQ. If you follow the directions we provide and have some practical experience, you can successfully build this fence.

It may take you a little while to complete. But like anything else, with more experience you become more proficient and faster.

Try to learn as much as you can before starting the project. Also, you might consider using the services of a professional installer to drive or set the posts, leaving you to finish the rail.

How long will it last?

We use a large plastic supplier who blends in a UV stabilization package in the premium grade polyethylene plastic we buy, and we stand behind their products.

Because of this we offer up to a 30 year limited warranty, knowing that polyethylene will usually outperform other plastics.

Should I consider using a fencing contractor?

Trusted contractors have the equipment, tools and experience to give you a permanent, professional looking structure.

For every dollar you spend, it will be returned in increased equity by adding value to your property. If you have never built a fence like this, consider having an experienced fencing contractor quote and install the first section of fence. So then you might be able to watch him.

Then you can make an evaluation as to whether you finish the installation or have him do it. Visit our Trusted Contractors page to find one near you.

Will my horses chew on the rail?

Horses have been known to chew on timber post and rail fencing, and especially timber end assemblies.

Using our Hottop products along with our plastic posts, our patented Ezyend product and steel oval rail on your strainers will eliminate chewing altogether, creating a fence with an aesthetic appeal that will last a lifetime.

What length rolls does the Horserail / Hottop come in?

Our rail products come in lengths of 100m or 200m whereas the Hotcote and Horsecote come in lengths of 400m.
