About this site:
This site contains a large amount of information on managing pastures for horses, weeds and weed control, types of grasses.
Sections cover basic soil science and botany, along with fencing, shelter and water, how much fertiliser to apply, how to improve your pasture, reseeding techniques, hay making and silage/haylage making.
I have set out to make people more aware of what is going on in their paddock and how this might affect their horse.
About the author:
Denis Lindsell graduated from Reading University in 1974 with a degree in agricultrue before taking an active part in the family farming business.
In spite of having learnt to ride as youngster, there was no real involvement with horses until leaving the family farm and moving to Cornwall in 1988, the start of many years of horse ownership.
Whilst lecturing at Duchy College in Cornwall from 1996 to 2003, the lack of suitable material on Pasture Management for Horses was identified and hence the development of this site.
