Re: [RC] electric fences - Linda
I saw this this spring at the Hallalujah ride (I think that was the
one). It wasn't endurance riders, but some field trial people (I believe
that was what they were doing). I thought it was an interesting set up.. A
chain through a rubber hose (pretty big size chain) and they had it attached
to a swivel piece on a big stake that they pounded down level with the
ground. It seemed to be working great for them, but I would say this is
something you had better train for!
