Horse Acreage and Horse Boarding
Many people coming to live in Denver or seeking a horse property in Colorado are keen to know how many horses they can have per acre on their land. This is something that we can help give advice on.
It’s always worth talking to other people who live in the area to find out their arrangements for their horse property. Everyone’s needs, as well as everyone’s horses, will be slightly different.
For instance, some owners may have four or five horses that are kept in pasture during the day and then go into dry lot or stalls overnight.
Horse owners will find this will work well as the pasture provides a good deal of the nutrition horses need through from late Spring to Fall season. It will also still be useful to have access to pasture in Winter too, though this may be more limited if the weather is very inclement or temperatures very low.
Some owners prefer four or five horses out in pasture all the time, so long as they have access to stalls or a loafing shed. This might suit older, retired horses better. You may need to think about blanketing them if the weather is going to be very cold or wet, or if there is snow of any kind. In terms of feeding think about starting them with Hay from the beginning of October through to the end of May. Grass, after this time, should be more plentiful and more than enough to give them all the nutrients they need and ensure they have enough fat.
If you have more than the above number of horses, it may well be possible to accommodate them if you think carefully about cross fencing and rotating your land. This will work better in situations where there are more than five horses to think about, but not everyone has that many or wants to invest the time or money into doing this.
The general consensus on acreage is that acres per horse in Colorado really does depend on where you are living, how much fresh water you have access to and how you want to manage your horses.
Many plots don’t always have grass so have to think about intensively managing their horses according to the amount of land they have.
If you’re trying to keep horses on pasture you will most definitely need to consider investing in a fairly hefty chunk of acreage that will need to be manages very carefully in order to keep your horses healthy.
It is rare that you will be able to stop feeding your horses hay in the summer, if your horses live outside, as the climate here is not lush enough and is mostly dryland. Aim to be able to have enough land so that your horses don’t completely wreck your fields and always have a contingency plan to feed hay all year round, should it be needed.
