Managing land for horses can be complicated. There is a lot of conflicting information out there. Do you deal with the misery of mud when its wet, or dust when its dry? Do you spend hours doing management chores rather than enjoying your horses? Do you worry about safe, healthy pasture? Are you concerned about poor soil conditions and reduced biodiversity? Do you want to learn a way to manage your horse/s & the land in a way that is good for horses, people and the environment?
