Edit of a horse on grass from FLicker

How your horse can graze 24/7 on grass,
stay healthy & have great year round feed.

Join Dr Ian Chivers CEO of Native Seeds Pty Ltd ( Native Grass Pasture expert) and Jane Myers from Equiculture.com.au - Specialists in equine grazing behaviour and the sustainable management of horse properties.

They discuss the common issues that many horse owners struggle with. Between them, they have over 85 years of practical experience in this specific area.

This is essential listening and viewing if

  • You are feeling overwhelmed, lacking in knowledge and confidence about taking the next steps to successful land stewardship.
  • You are time poor, and struggle with limited money and resources on how to feed your horses safely.
  • You don’t enjoy soaking hay, and stabling horses so as to protect them from the high sugar introduced grasses.
  • You love your environment and want to be a more effective grass farmer for your horse. This is the sustainable low cost natural alternative, that means you won’t be spending money on fertilizer, lime, water and other additives.

This webinar will cover the following topics:

  • The common mistakes costing time and money that many horse owners routinely make and how to avoid them.
  • How to get up to speed quickly with the essentials you need to know and how to apply them
  • The correct way to develop a plan going forward that won’t cost you a fortune.
  • Case studies of people who use Jane’s and Ian’s methods, getting back more money and time in the process. Making their properties, drought proof and sustainable is an added bonus!

Congrats on the brilliant Webinar, the information is so relevant and up to date. I have long advocated for more natural ways of keeping horses and am constantly frustrated by not owning land myself and having to agist. I introduced the land owner of the last place I kept my horse to the whole idea of native grasses for pasture and would have liked to change the individual paddock regime that is so common. Where I previously kept my other horse was a large (huge area actually) paddock where horses grazed as a herd and had individual yards for feeding/grooming etc., there was only need for one major water point, the horses were very healthy, the ground was never completely bare, the horses would organise the hierarchy of the herd themselves quite acceptable and new horses would take a few days to get themselves sorted but overall it was a great system. My horse lived there for at least 15 years (the latter years of her life) and she lived a very healthy happy life and died as a result of chipped shoulder at 32 years of age, I was riding her up until 2 years prior.

Keep up the good work, let's hope more horse/land owners can be informed of these excellent ideas.

Many thanks for providing such excellent information.
