Premium Steel Post and Rail Fencing Design for Equine Properties 

A very exciting part of creating your dream equine property is – designing and visualising. This is the time when you can play around and lay a foundation for your beautiful future. One of the elements that can elevate the entire aesthetic of your property is the fencing. 


While designing and choosing different fencing solutions is interesting, it might get overwhelming as well. Too many ideas, products and advice can make the whole process chaotic, rather than bringing clarity to the vision. So, if you are planning your equine property and are looking for inspiration that’s focused, clear and can lead you in the right direction, then keep reading.

In this blog, we’ll take you through a visual journey of some of these beautiful horse properties created with Premium Steel Post and Rail fencing. You’ll learn about the key elements in an equine property and how to design them. Also, as you scroll through the images, we’ll enable you with planning tools and share real-life experiences of equine property owners.  


You’ll have the clarity and confidence to make the right fencing decisions for your animals, your property and your dream. 


 1. Classic and Beautiful Fencing over New and Trendy 

In our experience of helping create premium equine properties, one learning is to choose classic and beautiful over the cool new trendy fencing. Whether you pick hardwood or steel, the traditional post and rail fencing look when done right, is and always be a sign of elegance.  


The images below showcase signature properties designed with our Premium Steel Post and Rail Fencing.

2. Choose Fencing that Looks Beautiful, Longer

This seems like an obvious feature for a signature property – to choose a beautiful, easy-to-maintain fence that lasts long. However, it’s not easy to find one that continues to look stunning over the years. When you’re building a premium equine property, you don’t want a fence that deteriorates too soon due to environmental and other factors.  

For instance, Timber Post and Rail fencing often is a great choice but be careful if your location is prone to termites. It’s best to dig deeper and find out which post and rail fencing would be ideal for your property. 

Watch how Jenny and Robert Jones found a solution to fence their equine property in the so-called termite capital of the world.

 3. Black or White Fencing Fits the Dream  

 All fencing colours can look good, but most of the premium equine properties in our experience choose the classic hues of white and black. We agree it’s good to be experimental and try out different shades that might match your house or your vision. However, most high-end properties stick with these two traditional fencing colours. 

If you want, you can explore more about the most popular fencing colours used by property owners across Australia.

3. Creative Curves and Corners can Elevate Your Fence Design

Transform the look and feel of your paddocks by getting imaginative with the corners. Try incorporating curves, octagonal shapes, or 45-degree angles at the corners to not only enhance the aesthetics but also boost the safety features for your horses.

4. Rail Numbers Matter for Stylish and Safe Fencing Design

Explore the impact of the number of rails on the style and safety of your post and rail fencing. If you aim for a standout fence that’s a key feature of your property, consider going for more rails, like a 4-rail design. This not only adds an extra layer of safety but also introduces an eye-catching design element.  

Conversely, for a more minimalist or blended appearance, opt for a simpler 2-rail configuration. The choice is yours, and it all depends on your vision for your horse property.

5. Do Not Compromise Horse Safety for Anything

Horse fencing first and foremost should be safe for your animals. It’s recommended to pick fencing that’s specifically designed keeping equine safety in mind.  

For example, Premium Steel Post and Rail Fencing has a bend, buckle and release system that makes sure if a horse runs into the fence, the rails give way rather than staying rigid or breaking into splinters. Thus, avoiding injuries that might happen in the case of hardwood or  PVC fencing. 

This is one of the key reasons why Kelly and Adrian Prevost chose Buckley for their premium equine property in Queensland. Learn all about their journey here.

6. Consider Safe and Strong Fencing for Paddocks 

While paddocks are an integral part of an equine property, designing paddocks is an entire project on its own. The most important factors to consider are safety, aesthetics and harmony with your overall fencing.  

Depending on the contour of your property it may be worth exploring having an excavation company shaping your paddocks and fence lines for maximum aesthetics and safety.   If there are a lot of ‘ups and downs’ it can completely change the look and feel of your property once fenced. 

It’ll be worth checking out a dedicated resource on paddock fencing designs for an in-depth understanding and decision-making.  

Here are some beautiful-looking paddocks for your inspiration.

7. Stunning and Safe Fencing for Arenas

Horse arena is another integral part of an equine property. If you have a riding or training arena on yours, then the fencing should be carefully chosen considering the safety of the horse as well as the rider. 

Similar to paddocks, arena fencing should also tie well with the rest of the fencing on your property. 

Check out a detailed blog on choosing the right post and rail fencing for your arena.
