Keeping horses at a healthy weight can be an uphill struggle during the spring and summer months, when the grass is at its richest.
We have been using a track system style of grazing to manage the weight of some of our residents and would like to share this knowledge with owners.
On July 13,our dedicated Track System Ambassadors will be sharing what they have learned with horse owners, yard managers and anyone who is interested, at a free event.
Event organiser Rachel Dixon said: “We have used a track systems here for the last few years and realise how difficult it can be to manage a horse’s weight and still keep them happy. We want to share what we have learnt and give horse owners the knowledge and guidance to consider a track system on their land.”
Track systems are about creating a more natural herd related environment for horses, encouraging them to move about more and eat less.
At the event guests will find out more about planning and creating a basic set-up around the perimeter of a field, to more detailed information about how to keep horses motivated to move around and managing a herd.
Bransby Horses are one of the UK’s largest equine welfare charities, dedicated to improving the lives of horses, ponies, donkeys and mules.
For over 50 years we have been rescuing and caring for equines in need, and as the demand for our rescue and welfare work continues to rise, we have successfully collaborated with others when needed to achieve the best possible outcome.
At our Make a Difference events, our experienced teams hope to share their equine knowledge with horse owners as part of their ongoing mission to positively impact the lives of equines.
Managing Grazing with Track Systems takes place on Thursday July 13, 6.30pm – 9pm in the Clifford Marshall Building at Bransby Horses in Bransby near Lincoln.
The event is free but spaces are limited so booking is essential.
Light refreshments and free parking will be available.
