  8. Is the Paddock Paradise System Right for Me?

    Is the Paddock Paradise System Right for Me?

    Horses are gregarious, social animals that live and travel in herds, and whose natural habitat provides a level of mental and physical stimulation that is hard to replicate within the confines of a typical rectangular paddock. To regain some of that natural enrichment, consider building your herd a Paddock Paradise. Paddock Paradise is an alternative to traditional rectangular paddocks that promotes the natural lifestyle of horses by giving them a space to graze as well as a semi-structured area to roam and play outside of the grass. A paddock paradise can be as simple as a narrow strip around your existing paddocks or it can be as complex as a path that travels around your property. The idea is that the path you build protects your grazing space, contains various enrichment spaces as well as hay and water, and will promote more movement and keep your horse more mentally and physically active. The track can vary in shape and size to fit your property and your horse’s needs, but is not necessarily suitable for every property or herd, so check out the pros and cons to determine if a paddock paradise is right for you.
