Your horse’s safety during its stay at our facility is of the upmost importance to us and we have therefore chosen to fence the facility with Gallagher Equifence (as well as a small amount of post and rail). Gallagher Equifence is a highly visible electric fence system which has a large diameter, smooth coating which minimises the risk of injury to a horse should it come into contact with it. We also have a roundpen with two attached yards, fully-fenced 60x20m arena with attached yard. This all combined creates a safe facility to ensure the risk of your horse being injured during its stay with us is kept to an absolute minimum and they are therefore kept as safe as possible.
We cannot recommend Gallagher Equifence highly enough! It is easy to install, looks smart and, most importantly, we have witnessed first-hand horses getting their legs caught in the Equifence that would have, with normal wire fencing, received significant and potentially life threatening leg injuries - but with the Equifence have walked away with either not a mark on them or a tiny plastic burn of the hair where the Equifence has come into contact. For this reason we simply would not fence with any other product!
If you would like any further info on Gallagher Equifence please either Contact Us and we can pass on some further details or contact Mark Mailand directly. Mark is the Territory Manager for Gallagher that we have dealt with – he is extremely helpful and fantastic to deal with (let him know you saw his details here).
Our facility is located at 770 Downs Road, West Eyreton (North Canterbury).
As well as the Gallagher Equifence fencing all paddocks have automated troughs. We also have a fully-fenced 60x20 arena with attached yard, roundpen with two attached yards and washbay. We also live on -site so are around to keep a close eye on your horse during its stay with us.
Our facility is open by appointment only, all year round. You are most welcome to contact us to arrange a time to view/inspect the facility prior to booking in your horse to be educated.
