Centaur® flexible fence was developed because inventor Ed Robbins, witnessed a tragic accident. A friend’s horse became entangled in a wire fence and was euthanized due to extensive injury. That very moment Ed Robbins, an avid horseman, swore he would create fencing material that would be safer for horses.

Ed took a long hard look at what makes traditional fence materials a threat to horses and came up with a safer, long lasting alternative. Splinters, cracked boards, nails and fallen fence lines all pose a serious threat to equine safety. In 1981, Ed Robbins invented an effective fence solution that allows impact to be absorbed by the entire length of the fence. Backed by a series of patents, this new flexible rail offers a safer, more secure containment system than traditional fence materials.

We all have horses because we love them and our equestrian lifestyle. With Centaur® fencing systems in place, horses enjoy a safer environment while owners enjoy peace of mind.
