Another day another 1000m post and rail job   

Our job here was to replace an old, rotten post and rail fence which had served its time.  We removed the fence and replaced it with 1000m of new, creosote-treated timber post and rail fencing. This should last another 30 years.

See our pictures below both ‘during’ and the ‘nice and straight’ at the end…

New eventing yard Chippenham

New eventing yard Chippenham

It’s been a busy few weeks for our fencing team working on an exciting new build Equestrian yard project near Chippenham.

First up we dug a 60 x 20 arena, installed the drainage, fixed the membrane and added 8 inches of stone.

Then we fenced the area and put boards down, all ready for the top surface.

Next will be a new American barn with stables, paddocks, storage building and horse walking to follow with post and rail paddocks.

More posts to follow to keep you updated and for more information about our other fencing projects please see this web page.

450m post and rail with double-sided electric at Manton Grange

This time we recently completed a 450m post and rail with double-sided electric on top of the post and rail to stop horses arguing with each other over the fence and damaging themselves or the fence.  This allows for an increased number of horses at Manton Grange.  The fence itself was constructed from pressure treated creosote timber;  we still find this the most durable and long lasting timber product on the market.  It can be unpleasant to work with but has the added advantage that the horses will not chew it either!

Equestrian post and rail

We erected 1000 metres of post and rail with gates and electric for the international 3-day eventer,  David Doel, International Event Rider, of Reybridge Eventing at Lacock.

This will give increased turn-out for extra horses, and the fence has an electric wire on the top of an internal fence to prevent the horses pushing up against it.
