All the grass varieties contained in Horse Master® are included in a list of varieties. This gives Horse Master® users a quality guarantee. The varieties have all been individually evaluated to assess their specific characteristics with respect to use by horses. They provide the energy and effective fibre that horses need. Horse Master® grass also has a low growing point, i.e. the point from which the grass plant regrows after it has been grazed or mown, and it is deep-rooted to ensure a strong horse pasture.
Most grass seed mixtures are traditionally intended for use by cattle. However, cows’ requirements with respect to grass are quite different from those of horses. Grass intended for cows contains a lot of energy and sugars. That’s unhealthy for horses, which require roughage with a high effective fibre content. Horse Master® is an innovative grass seed mixture yielding roughage that is ideal for horses’ rations. The varieties contained in Horse Master® are moreover extremely strong, making for a sward that is resistant to sprints around the pasture.
Massive underground networks of long roots make Horse Master® a sustainable grass seed mixture. The long roots enable the grass plants to take up moisture and minerals from deep down in the soil. A Horse Master® pasture will not have to be irrigated much in dry periods. Horse Master® pastures will last for at least ten years, subject to good agricultural use.
