Permanent Horse Pasture 70% ORGANIC

Ref: 7ORG
Sowing rate: 14 kg per acre (35 kg/ha, 3.5 g/m²)

A specially designed mixture for horse paddocks and stud farms to provide balanced grazing and a dense turf. A number of variations can be made to the mixture to suit different conditions. These include adding our herb mixture to provide minerals and trace elements (cost £5.85 per acre) and wild white clover which can be added at 0.2 kg per acre (cost £2.05 per acre). Clover is a good source of free soil nitrogen and increases protein in forage. However, clover is not recommended for ponies or horses prone to laminitis.

Equine Pasture - No Ryegrass 70% Organic

Ref: MIX13ORG
Sowing rate: 14 kg per acre (35 kg/ha, 3.5 g/m²)

Research and experience has shown that rich pasture containing ryegrass can cause dietary issues such as stomach ulcers and laminitis in equines.  Increasingly horse owners are opting to avoid sugary ryegrasses in thier paddocks altogether.  Some ryegrasses can also become unproductive after 4-5 years.  This more persistent, non-ryegrass mix is an alternative to our Permanent Horse Pasture, providing good quality and diverse forage with a lower sugar content.  Although this mix will take a little longer to establish than ryegrass based mixes, it will provide a dense resilient turf with balanced forage for grazing or hay.

Natural Pony Paddock 70% ORGANIC

Ref: PPORG
Sowing rate: 15 kg per acre (37.5 kg/ha, 3.75 g/m²)

It is believed that ryegrass based leys increase the risk of laminitis. Therefore we recommend the use of a non ryegrass mixture for ponies and horses prone to this condition. This type of mixture is slower to establish than those with ryegrass, but the resulting turf is dense and more resilient. Traditional herbs are included as standard. This mixture should be sown no later than mid September.
