Paddocks have long been in use for many years. A paddock lets the person dedicate a specific space in their field for the use of horses. This means that the horse has a space that can be used just for them and them alone. Creating the field means doing several things. The field will need to have a fence to help keep the horses safe. It should also ideally have lots of ground covered in grass. A paddock can be a place where the person bonds with their horse and teaches them to accept a rider and allow that rider to ride safely. The paddock is also a place where the rider can care for the horse by doing things such as putting on shoes and cleaning the horse down after a long, hard ride in the countryside. When creating a field, each person should think in the long term.
Long term thinking means thinking about how to engage in equestrian paddock maintenance that will keep the field tended well. When a field is first set up for use of the horse, it can seem like the perfect space. However, over time, problems may develop in the field. The field may be run over with weeds and may also have problems with moss. The weeds can interfere with the growth of grass necessary to provide a smooth surface for the rider to relax. This is why it is useful to think about how best to head off any potential issues that might develop. Having a company come by and examine the field closely can offer the help that each paddock owner needs to have the most functional paddock possible all year long. The company will spot problems and then develop ways to head them off before they cause additional issues.
