Mountain Rail, Split Rail,

Mountain Rail Split Rail is a 3 rail  fence designed for horses that is 48 inches tall. The rails are 11' and overlap each other inside the post. They are hardwood rails , mostly oak and maple. The posts may be a treated wood or locust. Wonderfully strong fence. Has been used for 100 years on the East coast horse farms. Sterling Fence Inc. sells and installs this product.

Horse fence, post and board

Sterling Fence Inc.'s post and board style can be done  with different material, What we have found that works well is 3 rail, using a 5" x 8' post, setting them 8' or less apart. Using 2 x 6 x 16' boards, the fence is aprox 48" to 50" tall, The boards we like measure 1 1/2 " x 6" x16'. We always use treated  wood,
