What about hobbles?

QUESTION: 

Hi Mark,

I wanted to know if you know any ways to stop a horse from running the fence line. The problem is my horse is alone in a pasture with horses in the pasture next to him, and he is cutting himself ect on the fence from running back and forth. Hopefully another horse will be adding in the next month or so but if not do you have any suggestions other than locking him up? What about hobbles? Thank you for your time.

ANSWER: 

Hi Julie,

Why not just put him in the pasture with the other horses? Do not hobble him, because he will learn to run with the hobbles on.

Mark
