Multiple Fencing on Equine Properties 

Discovering the potential of multiple fencing styles opens up a world of possibilities. Whether you’re aiming for aesthetic harmony across the property, bringing down the cost, adding functionality, or complementing the view, using different fences strategically can turn your space into something beautiful and practical.  

Join us on this journey as we explore how different fencing styles can be combined to create a property that is both practical and visually stunning. 


Keep It Simple: Uniform Top Rail 

When setting up multiple fences on your horse property, keeping things looking coordinated can be tough. One straightforward trick is to stick with a uniform Top Rail throughout your property. If you’re using Post and Rail horse fencing, just make sure the top part looks the same everywhere and mix up the types of fencing underneath for variety without messing up the overall look.

Colour Coordination for an Elegant Look 

If you’re using different fences, it’s a good idea to keep the colours the same. For instance, if you chose black Buckley Steel Post and Rail, keep everything black throughout. Pay attention to little colour differences to keep everything looking smooth and put together.

Make Multiple Fencing Look Good with Similar Sizes 

For a nice-looking horse property, it’s smart to pick fences that have similar sizes. If the rails have the same height and width, it looks neat and all put together. For example, if you use Buckley Steel Fencing System and Legacy Rail Bold together, they’ll match up well and make your property look nice and tidy.

Choose the Alternate Fence Wisely 

When you’re trying out different fences, make sure the cost-effective ones in less visible areas don’t impact the whole look of your property. Start with your main fencing and experiment with others that fit your vision and budget. Whether you’re combining top rail with hot cote, V-mesh, or no climb mesh in the back paddocks using Horserail, the goal is to make everything look good within your budget.

Whether it’s creating a cohesive look, enhancing functionality, or maximizing your property’s views, the simple yet effective strategies discussed in this blog along with the images will help turn your horse property into a dream one. 


When designing with multiple fences, it’s wise to opt for a supplier offering a variety of options rather than one that specialises in just one product. Choosing a supplier with a diverse range makes the process more convenient, cost-effective and manageable compared to ordering from multiple manufacturers and combining them yourself.
