Many may think that “Equestrian Fencing” is exclusively for containing and managing horses. However, that is far from the truth. Just like any fencing, the equestrian style, commonly known as “post and rail fencing” is extremely versatile and can be adapted for just about any need. And, with new vinyl materials available, today’s equestrian fencing doesn’t suffer the same heavy maintenance costs as traditional wood fencing.
Equestrian Fencing for Barrier Signaling
The look of equestrian fencing is distinctive. If you are looking to install fencing around your property that has a farmhouse or country look, vinyl equestrian fencing is a fantastic choice.
Even if there is nothing you are trying to keep contained inside the fence, this stylish look signals that what’s behind it is private property without feeling intimidating.
The style of the fencing harkens back over a century to its functional, agricultural origins. Large rural properties or estates looking for simple barriers around their properties used them to keep livestock from wandering and mark their property boundaries. Today, large properties can benefit from this style of fencing such as estates, camps, parks, and much more.
Even better, vinyl fencing is virtually maintenance-free, unlike its wooden predecessor, which suffered from ground-level rot and broken rail tenons. Aside from standard wear-and-tear, you are very unlikely to ever need to repair this sturdy, economical fencing option.
Decorative Equestrian Fencing
This style of fencing is not only functional but can add a classic look to any property. From country clubs, to vineyards, to remote vacation destinations — vinyl equestrian fencing can provide decorative flair for a variety of property types. If your property has a long frontage along the road, this style is the perfect choice for adding distinction — helping your land stand out from the areas around it. Long, winding driveways benefit from equestrian fencing, creating a stand-out border welcomes guests and allows for unobstructed views of the landscape.
Fencing isn’t just functional; it is a permanent aesthetic investment in your property. Opting for cheap fencing or fencing that doesn’t suit the aesthetic of your property can be costly. Often, fencing is one of the first things a potential visitor or guest would see on your property. You want to send the right message.
