Preventing the Great Escape!

Win a state-of-the-art Fence Buster rug with the Guardian Escape Artist Challenge!

This is the tale of Bumble – a determined escape artist – versus Guardian Fence Buster Rugs.

Whereas other rugs may potentially neutralise the effectiveness of an electric fence by isolating a horse from the pulse (encouraging escape-bids), Guardian’s Fence Buster transmits the charge through to the inner layer, so the fence can do its job effectively again.

Bumble was living as part of a herd in 20 acres of turnout, but this wasn’t enough for her. She regularly let herself and her fieldmates out after breaking through her electric fence. She had been put on stable arrest and was no longer allowed out because of her regular Houdini-style scapades.

Her owner, Vicky, contacted Guardian – and the Bumble vs Guardian challenge began... The mare was turned back out in her Fence Buster rug and neck cover – so as soon as she made contact with the fence she felt the same effect as she would have when not wearing a rug at all.

The result was a firm Guardian 1 – Bumble 0. The Fence Buster put an end to Bumble’s escaping and she’s now happily living back out in her field... behind the electric fence.

Do you own an ‘escape artist’? Is your horse a serial fence trasher? Have they broken into the farmers carrot fields? Or let their friends out? Made you late for work?
