Horse QuikFence® 4/48/24
Installation is a 5-step process:
- Untie the strings.
- Unroll and then unfold the mesh.
- Push the posts into soil with your foot.
- Stretch the fence hand-tight.
- Attach a battery or plug-in energizer.
SpecificationsPosts are 3/4" diameter PVC plastic with a steel double-spiked foot. They’re spaced every 12.5 ft in the mesh. Mesh is 4 ft tall when installed. It’s suspended 1 ft above the soil. The 4 conductive horizontal strands are 3/16" diameter. The unique plastic verticals (every 2 ft) are designed to break if a horse challenges the fence.
- Attractive, safe fence.
- Very visible to horses and humans.
- Effective, no-worry horse barrier.
- Installs with ease up and down hills, across valleys and around curves.
- Stops cattle, llamas and most deer.
- Ideal for subdivision fences, semi-permanent boundary fences and as weekend fence for shows, trail rides.
- Must be energized to cause horses to avoid it. To not do so is a serious error.
Are extra posts needed?
Built-in posts are adequate for line and curve posts. Extra support at ends and 90º corners is required. For this use small wood or steel posts or string tied from the post tops back to tent pegs.
How large a fence energizer?
Most Horse QuikFence™ situations need an energizer between 0.15 and 1.5 joules. (Output in joules, not miles, is the right way to compare energizers.) It does not matter whether it's powered by AC (plug-in), battery, or solar/battery.
What about weeds touching the fence?
Too many green weeds can become a problem even though the fence is 12 in. above the soil. If this occurs, either mow under the fence, move the fence, spray under the fence, or buy a larger (in joules) fence energizer.

Use only with a low or wide impedance intermittent pulse energizer. Warning! Do NOT use continuous output energizers with electric netting due to risk of fire. (Fi-Shock™ brand energizers which are sold as low impedance, continuous current output should NOT be used with electric netting.) All energizers sold on Premier's website use an intermittent pulse and are suitable for use with electric netting.
Dry conditions and wintertime usage may reduce the effectiveness of electric fencing.
Dry or frozen ground many cause the NetPost spikes to bend or break if inserted with force. Pilot holes may be needed.
We offer many fences to fit your situation, including different heights and lengths, multiple colors, drivable posts and positive/negative options for dry soils. Questions? Call our fence consultants at
Electric fence is a pain barrier, not a physical barrier. A common mistake is not electrifying it. Animals may escape or become entangled (and may die). On a % basis, entanglement is very rare, but it can and does occur. If animals are scared or starved it will not keep them in. The first time you put the animals in the net, you should be available to watch them for a while. That way if one were to get into the fence and get caught, you can turn the power off and get them loose.
Warning! Due to risk of fire, do NOT use continuous output energizers with electric netting or electro-plastic conductors such as rope, twine or tape. Use only with a low or wide impedance intermittent pulse energizer. (Fi-Shock™ brand energizers which are sold as low impedance, continuous current output should NOT be used with electric netting.) All energizers sold on Premier’s website use an intermittent pulse and are suitable for use with electric netting.
Dry conditions and wintertime usage may reduce the effectiveness of electric fencing. Ice and heavy snow can flatten netting and thereby damage it.
Dry or frozen ground may cause post spikes to bend or break if inserted with force. Pilot holes may be needed. We recommend using drivable or single spike posts in hard soils. Double spike posts provide more stability when the ground is soft.
