We think you’ll agree, it’s not easy choosing horse fencing. Do you go on appearance alone? Or do you prioritize an eco-friendly option? What about equestrian safety or the durability of the fence over time?

At Buckley, we don’t think you should have to sacrifice anything. Here’s why:

Looks brand new for decades

The Buckley Steel Board fence combines the best of traditional farm or ranch aesthetic, offering the wooden post and rail style with the durability of steel, while forgoing the inevitable rust that accompanies welded pipe. The rails remain straight and the posts perfectly aligned no matter what the temperature. It looks brand new for decades and makes your neighbors jealous for decades too.

Long Lasting

Compared to other horse fencing options, Buckley Steel Board fencing is designed to last decades in most locations, with no degradation.

No regular maintenance required

Unlike all of the other horse fencing options, Buckley Steel Board fence requires no regular maintenance. There may only be the very occasional minor touch up for
cribbing. The protective powder coating will not chip, peel, or crack and has superior long-term resistance to rusting, fading or chalking.

Exceptionally safe for horses

At the forefront of most people’s minds when choosing a fence is animal safety, both in terms of physical risk and risk of escape. While wood boards are highly visible to the horses’ poor eyesight, horses still risk ingesting toxic splinters, and cutting themselves on nails, splinters, shards, and fallen boards. Buckley Steel Board fence is the safest fencing option available, with no known injuries due to this product. Unlike welded steel pipe, each section is thermally independent and therefore not subject to cracking or corrosion. Furthermore, due to its design of rounded smooth edges and no nails, screws or fasteners, there is no risk of cuts to horses’ delicate skin. It is quite strong, but for safety reasons will buckle on direct running impact.

Extremely strong

Buckley Steel Board Fence is exceptionally strong and durable. The rails and posts are made with cold rolled steel welded tubing that is rolled into shape. To give you an idea:

Post strength (at top rail): 1,200 lbs. of horizontal force
Rail strength (at center of rail):
Vertical: 1,200 lbs.
Horizontal: 400 lbs.
Horizontal Reinforced Rail: 700 lbs. (see our rail reinforcement video below)

Environmentally friendly

Factors such as materials sourcing, recyclability, and use & sourcing of electricity all play a role in determining how environmentally friendly a horse fence is. Of the fence types assessed, Buckley Steel Board fence has the lowest environmental impact and is designed to be as environmentally friendly as possible. It is made from recycled materials, has no harmful volatile organic compounds (VOC’s) in its powder coat, and the product is easily recycled at obsolescence.

Adds value to your property

Buckley Steel Board fence has a higher upfront cost (although not as pricey as welded steel pipe), but the lowest lifetime cost. Due to the lack of maintenance needed and it being an asset to property value, its cost is easily amortized over time to make it the best option long-term.

Summary

The bottom line is Buckley Steel Board Fence is the best rated option in nearly every category. It’s aesthetically pleasing, will look like new for decades, and requires virtually no maintenance. Furthermore, it rates best for environmental friendliness and animal safety. While Buckley Steel Board fence does have a higher upfront cost, this is amortized over its essentially unlimited lifespan.
