In their advice guide on pasture management the British Horse Society recommend the following in terms of horse pasture.

 

Topping

Topping is the process of cutting the grass in a paddock, and ideally should be done at least once a year. Topping encourages new grass growth as well as decreasing weed growth. It is important to remember that horses should not be returned to grazing the area until the cut grass has dried out or has been removed. 

 

Equine Pasture Fertilisers

Poor quality grass can be a produce of poor soil quality. Ensuring the correct levels of Nitrogen, Phosphorous and Potassium will help promote healthy grass growth. Fertilisers are key to achieving the right balance in nutrients, however its important to use slow release fertilisers designed for use on equine pasture. It is always good to speak to a expert before purchasing, if you would like to speak to a specialist our fertiliser team can be contacted here.

 

Reseeding

Pasture can become bare of the winter months, this lessons the grazing area for your horse. It is recommended to choose equine specific seed mixtures that have been mixed to include grasses and herbs that will provide the horse with the correct balance of nutrients. Before allowing horses to graze on the new pasture it needs to be 5 or 6 inches high, and introduce then gradually to allow time for their digestion to adapt.
