The following is designed to try and help you improve or renovate an existing Horse grass pasture or paddock.
This should nearly always be the first thing to try and if successful you may only lose the field for a season rather than for a year if you sow a completely new ley.
The easiest and cheapest way to improve a pasture is just to rest it for one season. Make sure you split your grazing field into sections so that each part has at least a season to recover every 1 or 2 years.
If you need to reseed then check a few things first.
Look to renovate the field in either the spring or autumn.
If need be apply some seedbed fertiliser to encourage new grass to grow.
Ideally you need to be able to keep the horses of this section for at least one season
