A good pasture will meet the nutritional needs of most horses including brood and lactating mares and growing foals, although working horses may require some supplementation. However, the grazing habits of horses require that special consideration is given to the selection and management of the pasture. Because of the range of soils and rainfall in NSW, no single pasture species suits all horse properties. Select pastures suited to your area and then from these select the most suitable for horses.
