I have a woodchip arena in the field where my two pony mares graze, enclosed with wooden posts. One mare keeps rubbing on the posts, and they are constantly coming loose. The landowner won't let us set them in concrete, and it's not practicable to electrify each one individually (and I don't want electric fencing where I am riding). Any helpful ideas please?

Hey, Kate, I understand not wanting electric on when you are riding, but how about investing in some electric tape and a solar charger and just have it on when you aren't riding? I used to have Horse Guard fencing around my arena. I sometimes used it for turnout and hooked up the top tape to the charger at that time. The rest of the time, it wasn't hooked up . . . but the horses were careful of it.

Thanks Holly. I think that's what I'm going to have to do. I think having it on for a few days would probably be enough to deter her for a while!
