520 ## - SUMMARY, ETC.
Summary, etc. "Horses need grass. It plays a vital part in their nutrition, health and well-being, and good grassland management results in a cost-effective way of feeding them. However, all too often grass for horses is either poorly managed or managed according to normal agricultural practice, which does not provide good pasture for them. This informative book explains everything which needs to be considered when managing grasslands to benefit the horse, the vegetation and the environment. <br/><br/>The book examines the horse's grazing habits and its requirements when at grass, and goes on to present an overview of the range and types of grassland found in Britain and their suitability for the horse. Details are given of how to assess a pasture and identify significant plants, and the methods and outcomes of various management practices are discussed. The author sets the role of horse owner as land manager in the wider context of stewardship of the countryside, with considerations for preventing pollution and protecting wildlife. Of particular assistance to the reader will be the appendix, which gathers together information on the suitability of grassland plants for horses, and the many instructive illustrations." -- Inner sleeve
