About this item

Paddock Paradise: A Guide to Natural Horse Boarding describes a revolutionary but simple concept for a more naturalized way of horse keeping that is based upon the research done on the Great Basin wild horses by natural horse care expert and author, Jaime Jackson. PP is a must-read for any horse-owner or professional who wants to create an environment that is condusive to greater mental and physical health - helping to virtually eliminate common diseases and disorders such as laminitis, colic, navicular syndrome, ulcers, cribbing, stocking up, etc. Horse owners will also benefit from the reduction in hours spent on 'barn' chores and horses are 'always' warmed up and ready to ride. "Jackson explains to readers where the concept of the 'track system' originated by observing wild horse band behavior and how to encourage more movement in horses by using these concepts from nature to create a Paddock Paradise of your own through some minor modifications of most traditional boarding set ups. Horses are happier, exercise more and also eat in the manner that nature intended. Although free-roaming horses are far healthier than their stabled or confined cousins, many pastures are seeded with sugary grasses high in carbohydrates that are intended to quickly fatten livestock and thus can easily trigger the debilitating metabolic disease called laminitis. However, Paddock Paradise offers the perfect solution to prevention of laminitis or cure for those horses suffering from its painful symptoms. In fact, Paddock Paradise is an excellent solution to remedy a number of issues that plauge horse owners around the world.
