Horse management is the business of providing for a horse’s needs. Horses absolutely require only a few things: a safe place to live, something to eat, and water to drink. In order to be comfortable and healthy, however, they also need exercise, companionship, grooming, shelter, and a health support program that includes disease prevention, hoof maintenance, parasite control, and dental care.
Where will your horse live?
Each horse requires a minimum of about two acres (0.8 hectares) for grazing and moving around. In regions with limited forage, horses will need larger pastures or supplemental hay. Where grass is abundant, slightly less land may be allotted per horse, though some space to move around is still necessary.
