A track system like Paddock Paradise allows your horse to live more naturally. It also utilizes small acreage to its fullest! In this system, there’s an interior and exterior fence that create a track around the perimeter of your land. In the center, you’ll find grazing land, riding space, or even fields for other animals. It encourages the horse to seek out hay and water, thus moving throughout the day.

  • Manages grazing land
