Bi-Polar  ? How does it work

The HorseGuard Bi-Polar electric tape fencing is an effective Mental, Physical and Visual barrier that the horse respects. The fence has to be powered by a low impedance fence charger powerful enough to give you permanently a minimum of 4000 volts   on the tape in order to be respected by the horse.

This bi-polar fence is a Physical barrier

The top green edge connected to the (+) of the charger is the positive line. The bottom edge connected directly to the (–) of the charger is the negative line. The zapping occurs when the horse creates the contact with both edges of the tape (with the two edges of one tape or between the edge of 2 strands of tape). Because of the bi-polarity of the tape (+/-) you don’t need a ground rod even in a sandy, snowy, icy or rocky ground. Your fence will work whatever the land or weather conditions. The Bi-Polar fencing system is the all season, all climate and all year fencing solution! For the security of your horse and your peace of mind.



Electric fence tape effective in all climates without earth connection / ground rod.

All weather fence for horses

The Mental Barrier

On the Bi-Polar tape the plus ( + ) charge and the minus (-) charge are on the same tape. When the horse touches the electric tape he shocks himself for a fraction of a second. The zapping effect from the electric impulses is a harmless reminder… The shock associated with the electrified tape creates a mental barrier for the horse.
Thereafter, when the fence is electrified the horse will remember the shock experience and respect the barrier.To maintain a respect for the fence the horse must receive a shock whenever he attempts to touch it, for that reason the fence charger must be kept ‘on’ all the time and should carry permanently between 4000 volts to 7000 volts.

The Physical Barrier

HorseGuard tape resists up to 650 POUNDS OF PRESSURE

“Tough fence for tough customers ! “


The Visual Barrier (1.5 inch wide = 4cm)

Horses have blurred vision.
The horse can see in a radius of 350 degrees (man sees 180 degrees) but he has poor vision and very limited sense of perspective. His two blind spots are immediately in front of the nose and directly behind. An electric fence that is difficult to see can be a hazard to the horse.

The horse’s natural instinct is to flee from danger. A horse might not see or might ignore a smaller obstacle in his flight path.

The 1.5-inch wide Bi-Polar HorseGuard electrified tape creates that visual barrier.

It is designed to represent the diameter of a large enough tree limb the horse would both see and avoid running into. This visible barrier reduces dangerous incidents of frightened horses running into a fence.
