Horse care and management of small properties is often described as having a second job! For small farms, without access to equipment or perhaps the skills to complete rural tasks such as fencing or irrigation, there is often the requirement to bring in contractors. Horse SA has prepared a range of resources around horse keeping & land management. One of our most popular is the HorsesLandWater Action Planner & Management Guideline. For other useful publications, visit HorsesLandWater and check out the “resources” link. If you live in the greater Adelaide & hills region, and would like a free property visit to help plan out a pasture renovation, identify weeds or related management help, contact the Adelaide & Mount Lofty Ranges Natural Resources Management Board. This organisation also conducts courses and free field days on topics such as fencing and haymaking. Field days and support is also available from your NRM regional office, with the Murray Darling Basin NRM and the South East NRM recently running sessions for horse owners.
