You need an experienced person to evaluate the situation and determine why the mare is running through the fences.
Is there another horse chasing her?
Is she chasing another horse?
Is she kept away from [equine] company and breaking through the fences to get to some?
Is there a lack of pasture [grazing] where she is located, but better outside the fence?
Is there some other cause for her doing it?
Are the fences secure to start with?
All of these are factors that will need to be considered before a safe method to stop her can be effectively put in place. For example, you can put up electric fencing, but if she is being chased by another horse, she may go through that fencing and possibly even get tangled in it and get hurt.
You need to have to situation evaluated by someone who can actually see what is happening and then you can try and fix it - it's not something that can be done over the Internet.

Hi,I am 10 years old and I am wondering about my miniture horse.She bit me yesterday and we think the cause was that she may be due to foal sooner.We think it is due in June or July.She has been acting unusual and she just started biting yesterday.Could she be closer than we think?Please reply back A.S.A.P.

Ann, I dont think the fact that she bit you has anything to do with how close she is to foaling? Does she normally bite? Some mares will change as they get further along in their pregnancy, it doesnt mean that she is closer than you think, she may just been moody.
