The range recommended for line post spacing is 8′ to 12′. A layout with closer line post spacing increases the overall strength of your fence.
Lay of the land and animal containment needs can help determine the best post spacing requirements for your project.
Lay of the Land:
For example, a perimeter on level to gentle terrain may use up to a 12′ space between line posts. Irregular terrain may require less distance between posts to better customize the perimeter for your project.
The size and temperament of your animals will help determine your needs. For example, an area designed to contain a stallion may require a four rail fence with eight foot post spacing while another for mares may only require three rails with a twelve foot post spacing.
