I've done that before (minus the broken teeth). And anybody who is ignorant enough to think that electric fences are cruel, think again. They prevent the horses from ploughing through the wooden fence which often causes serious and sometimes fatal damage. The electric fence is only a small shock (like a static shock) and they rarely touch it. It protects them from serious injury. Accidents happen people, chill out.

Ehh, depends on the angle at which the OP fell and the horse kicked... if the edge of the hoof glanced off her mouth it's possible. And if the horse was barefoot there wouldn't be quite as much damage as if it were shod... you never know with horse injuries.

Hey, fuck you. Have you ever touched an electric fence? You don't die. And who said the horse kicked her? She probably just fell and hit the fence with her mouth or something. A horse wouldn't kick someone in the mouth anyway.

Oh yes, that' so true! Horses obviously don't kick people in the mouth because of their moral values! I mean, even if it was shocked, a horse would still uphold common courtesy and avoid the mouth! How could I have been so stupid?

It would go both into the ground and travel into the horse... if you don't believe me, try holding the hand of someone else while they grab an electric fence.

79, my friend got kicked in the mouth by her horse before and just just got a split lip. Maybe OP fell? And also, you wouldn't die from getting a shock from an electric fence. It doesn't even hurt that bad, just your joints are kind of sore after.

Shit happens. Hopefully they weren't front teeth, pending where the horse kicked. And anyone who says he deserves it, deserves to get anything bad in life, since this was clearly just an accident.

Yes, you can. I ride horses at some very nice places and they have electric fencing. Sometimes it is just hot tape, usually they will have their wooden or vinyl fencing with a strip of electric on the inside to keep the horses from chewing/pushing the fencing over/etc. It isn't on high enough to hurt the horse. It just gives them a zap and they go "whoa! Don't want to stand there anymore!" It is much, much kinder than something like barbed wire or the nails that hold wooden fencing together and can pierce a leg if a horse pushes on the fence right. Just because you are from the country doesn't mean you know anything about horses

I'm from the "country", and I have a multitude of horses. They are also kept in a pasture with either barbed wire, or electric fences. I have no idea why you think they can't be kept in one, but that's where many of my horses stay...

My instructor had a horse that injured himself very badly running into a wire fence and as a result had to be put down. I completely agree electric fences are much more humane

Ouch! And for everyone saying this is horrible (because of the electric fence) they're not that bad. Enough to give a little jolt, but I've accidentally touched ours enough to know it's not a big deal. Sucky timing.

The reason I related the feeling to a 'little jolt' was to give an idea to the idiots saying "OMG Poor horse!" for it getting shocked through the poster.
