From Tragedy to Innovative, Horse Friendly Fencing

Owner and founder, Ed Robbins, is an active polo player. He’s also cut cattle, ridden to hounds, and been involved with nearly every full-speed equestrian sport.

In 1980, he was visiting a friend who had just purchased new acreage with wood rail fencing. This friend, an equine vet, fully intended to change the fencing as soon as possible, but in the meantime had turned his polo string out to play.

Ed witnessed his friend's best horse mangle himself on the fence and watched while his friend put the horse down.

Knowing the possibilities of plastics and looking long and hard at what makes traditional fence material a threat to horses, Ed vowed to create a fence that would be as safe as a fence could be—offering absolute containment, yet a gentle rebound for any horse that encountered the fence.

The goal? No horse owner—no matter what their income—would ever have to settle for less-than-safe fencing again. Soon, the Centaur fence company (parent company of CenFlex) was meeting that goal. Today with CenFlex® HTP® Fence, Ed Robbins and his team continue a tradition of innovation.

CenFlex ® HTP® designers incorporate the latest developments in materials and technology to expand and update the CenFlex line, providing you with the safest, most durable and economical horse fencing available.
