Country Estate's Contribution to the Equine Industry
During the late 1970's, Country Estate Fencing was introduced to large Standardbred Horse Farms in upstate New York and New England. Professional horse handlers and the owners of expensive breeding stock quickly realized that Country Estate's polyvinyl fencing not only reduced fencing costs but also reduced injuries caused by fencing! And this outstanding product was also so beautiful that it enhanced the value of their properties. Once the equine industry became convinced that PVC fencing withstands New England's harsh winters as well as the searing heat of south Texas, Country Estate Fencing for horses became the fence of choice all across the United States.
Today, Country Estate Fence remains the leader in cost-effective fence that is free from all traditional fence maintenance. Exhaustive laboratory tests and field experience on horse farms throughout the Untied States fully support all claims of economy and safety. Country Estate Fence polyvinyl components are constructed of scientifically formulated 100% virgin PVC compounds consistently out performing any and all wood, metal or imitation polyvinyl fence products.
Since the introduction of Country Estate Fence, equine professionals have applauded the greater protection polyvinyl fence provides their animals. The day Country Estate Fence is installed, all traditional fence maintenance halts.
Our Customers Say it Best
" Four years ago I purchased horse property, built my dream horse barn, and was ready to put up state-of-the-art PVC fencing. The price of the fence was very affordable from a local fence manufacturer. I spent my hard earned money and my efforts into installing a fence that I did not research fully. I saw their twenty year warranty and thought, "How can I go wrong?"
The first really cold winter day after the fence was installed I learned of my mistake. My mare kicked a fence rail and it shattered into little pieces. I called for warranty replacement only to learn that the company was no longer in business! I called the Better Business Bureau and found that there were complaints against the fence manufacturer other than mine.
Later that year I put up an additional PVC corral from another fence manufacturer after fully researching references and checking with the Better Business Bureau. My new PVC fence is still wonderful after three years. My horses have slid into it, sat on it, and tangled into it by rolling without causing any damage to the fence or horses. It did cost more than the inferior fence I originally purchased, but I got a great product this time."
