While practicing touch-and-go landings at Hudson Valley Regional Airport (POU/KPOU), Wappinger, New York, the aircraft impacted a fence approximately 500 feet before the runway 24 threshold causing substantial damage to the landing gear. The pilot executed a go-around and flew several low passes with witnesses on the ground providing a visual inspection of damage to the aircraft. One of the main gear assemblies was reported to the pilot as substantially separated from the aircraft and "swinging in the wind." Following the low-pass inspections the pilot the proceeded to land on runway 24. The aircraft departed the runway and came to a rest in the grass near the intersection of runway 24 and taxiway B.
