Electric fence gateways
GATEWAYS for horses can be made using tape, rope or elastic. We don’t recommend using spring gates as their tails can get caught in them.
Recommended Gateway Layout:
It is best not to conduct power through a gateway using electric gate handles, but to use an underground cable so that there is always power on both sides of the gate. The gateway is then only ‘live’ when closed, and the fence will not loose power to earth if the gate handle touches the ground while not hooked on.
