My horse keeps jumping and crawling under the electric fence what should I do ?

Report as

I want to see that !!! It wants to be free . Do you have more than one horse ? Is there room to run ? Is it lonely ? Is it looking for food ? Is there an apple tree on the other side of the fence ? Horses need company with other horses . They love apple trees . They need to run . If you can't provide that . It may want to escape . If it has all of that . God bless you . You have to provide it with a fence that will keep it in like the ones already mentioned . A horse that can and wants to crawl is a good rodeo horse ! Honestly !!

Yes he has a buddy. There is plenty of room for him and plenty of food. What makes it funnier is that he is a spotted draft horse. Sadly he wouldn't be excepted into the rodeo.

Okay,I haven't caught him in the act yet. I think I am going to hide a video camera near the fence it may work.

I have done more strands f electric fence. I can't not use barbed wire on him because he doesn't respect that either.

LOL I'm sorry, but the image of a horse struggling to crawl under a fence gets me going XD try getting concrete put under the fence, and make the fence higher.

I live in New Hampshire we will be receiving some snow soon. He doesn't get out when it snows but the rest of the time I come home and he is in the driveway.

Obviously your fence is lacking bite. Do you have a ground rod? Is the box big enough to handle your fencing? If yes to all of that, check to make sure it isn't shorting out someplace. Then give serious consideration to a better box

I have checked the fence and there is nothing wrong with the fence. The box can handle 60 miles of fencing. The fence goes around in about 2 miles. I get zapped al the time it works really well. I think he just doesn't care. The other horse gets shocked constantly.

Then it's just not enough for him. We had an Appaloosa that would jump a wooden fence and go through a hot wire when the incentive was good enough (usually a mare) we put up hot wire for the normal horses and barn wire on the outside for him... It was the only thing he respected.
