Solutions: Confinement Area Innovations

Does confinement mean putting my horse in jail?

A confinement area is often called a “sacrifice area,” due to the space you give up in a pasture or another area to construct it. And for a horse, it’s anything but a sacrifice or confinement. It’s an area where he can get some exercise, breathe fresh air and socialize with the rest of the herd.

Constructing a confinement area that works for your horse’s type, and for your own needs and budget, can make you feel good about your horse keeping practices. Your confinement areas can serve many purposes such as: resting pastures that are overgrazed or dormant, getting your horse out of the barn when you can’t exercise him because of inclement weather, and providing a turn-out area for overweight or recovering horses that can’t be on pasture. To create a confinement area that is healthy for a horse, it should be free of mud, have safe footing and fencing and be free of objects that could cause injury.

Can a Track Paddock Benefit My Horse?

Does a paddock, or confinement area, have to be a prescribed rectangle, with little or nothing for a horse to do except nip at a neighbor’s mane? No it doesn’t! See how some people are innovating the way we fence in horses. Not only can it be satisfying and entertaining for you to watch your horse enjoying an enhanced track paddock, it can keep your horse fit, stimulated and sound.
