Legacy rail - Horserail cost


Cost of preparing horse property for Legacy Rail – flexible horse rail fencing

Or request your fencing contractor for a customised quote based on the specific requirements of your fencing project. 


Cost of installing Legacy Rail – flexible horserail fencing  

In most cases, a fencing contractor would come to your site, mark out your fence, install your posts, and assemble your strainer posts. After that’s done, the rail can be installed.  


Depending on the size of your property, the posts you choose, and the number of rails you install, the cost will vary. It’s simpler to install one rail, and it’ll take less time, so less money is spent. 3 or 4 rails will require extra time.   


One way you can save on this expenditure is to share the work. While a fencing contractor can install the posts, you can attach the rails yourself. 


Check to see if your Fencing Contractor is open to this idea. 


It’ll also be worth exploring the option of installing the horse fence yourself. 


Cost of installing only posts and rails:  $12 per meter.  

Each End assembly: $160 

Each Corner assembly: $250  

Triple assembly: $350 


Cost of Legacy Rails and Fencing Materials 

Legacy Rails are imported from America in a 200-metre roll and we provide it to high-end property owners across Australia and New Zealand. 


It is a complete fencing system with its tensioner, end plates and line brackets. The fencing materials are all patented and we recommend using only the original parts for installation. 


The installation of Legacy Rail is pretty similar to the original Horserail. The only difference is while on Horserail you need two attaching buckles and you end up with an in-line tensioning spooler in the middle of rail, with Legacy Rail the end plate and tensioner are all combined into one. 


So this gives you a much cleaner and more beautiful rail finish without any in-line tensioner.  


The cost is based on 100-metre fencing with 3 rails and 4 metres of post spacing. All prices include GST.

Installing Legacy Rail: Variable Costs

Cost of delivery  

Delivery charges cannot be applied to all at the same price. There are a few factors that affect it:  


  • Distance between your property and the warehouse or factory of your supplier. 
  • Is a truck or crane needed to unload?  
  • Crane unloading, for instance, usually costs $110 per hour. Some equipment providers charge minimum hours worked and also charge from their depot to your site and back to depot. Make sure you confirm what the true cost will be.

Metal and wood are the most common materials used to make them.
