Duration: 3 hours
Many breeds of horses can be kept at grass all year round, withstanding the worst weather conditions, if they are cared for adequately. If shelter, additional feeding, rugs (especially in cold climates) are used, drainage of the paddock or field is good, water supply is kept fresh
and unfrozen, and grooming is carried out. In this course, you'll learn about how to maintain a healthy environment for your horses at grass, including material on grazing requirements, boundaries, shelter, an annual grass management programme, and avoiding toxic plants in grazing areas.
