Post and rail fencing is a widely used fencing solution for equestrian and agricultural purposes. It can help to restrict the movement of cattle and livestock or be used as an animal deterrent. The rustic fencing style is also an attractive and traditional choice for homeowners in rural areas, especially those who do not want the view from their property obstructed by more obtrusive fencing styles, such as closeboard.
