Healthy Horse Healthy Land Workshop with Stuart Myers

When concerning the equine industry and regenerative farming, Stuart Myers is a name to remember. After co-founder Rupert Phillips, put in a proposal to ProWater and Annie Thurgarland, they thought a workshop to highlight this topic was imperative.

Ruperts proposal asked for a trial of a rotational grazing system here at the Stud on a 12-acre area of grassland. The idea behind it is to improve soil quality by increasing organic matter, rainfall absorption and the ability to retain said rainfall. This should lead to an increase in carbon sequestering and reduce the need for artificial inputs on grassland grazed by horses. 

The workshop will be held in Wootton Villiage Hall (details below), and will focus on a few main things:

  • How climate change, your land and the health of your horses correlate.
  • How you can improve the health of your land and horses using sustainable practices.
  • How you can help to look after local water sources and in turn reduce the impact of climate change.

As mentioned, this talk is given by Stuart Myers, a man that has dedicated his life to helping people achieve the best equine lifestyle possible. He has spent his career working with horses and learning from some of the best horsemen, women and academics. He studied how to best manage horses and had a particular focus on the land on which they live. He began to apply these insights into the way he managed his own horses and land, going on to challenge the traditional way of housekeeping and become an instrumental part in developing The Equicentral System. This system combines equine welfare with sustainable and progressive land management practices, whilst helping to reduce the time, money and effort that horse owners often spend when following a more traditional management system.

A testament from another of Stuarts previous events:

“I went to one of the talks a couple of years ago, (rather arrogantly thinking I’d know most of it already). It was life-changing for me, my horses, and my paddocks. I now enjoy smugly comparing the biodiversity on my place compared to the neighbours!” – Lauren.

 

To learn all about this and more! Get yourself down to Wootton on the 22nd of Feb and start your progressive equine journey!
