An electric fence system is not complete without a gate for getting your horse in and out of its new enclosure. A simple plastic handle with a hook and a spring to maintain the current is a must and your electric fence won’t work without it. The wide plastic grip means the current will remain on but will not shock or electrocute you. The gate system includes insulators, connectors and a spring or extra bit of rope or tape to ensure a complete circuit. With the proper gate system, the electric fence system can remain on and charged even when you open and close the gate. Never touch a charged rope or tape or you will feel the same jolt designed to keep your horse contained.
