One of the best ways to evaluate your horse’s diet is to know what is in your hay. If you purchase at least two or more months’ worth of hay at a time, it is worth having it analyzed. Here are some common terms you will see when hay and nutrition are analyzed.

Long-lining involves working the horse from the ground with two lines, or reins, attached to either side of the horse. While its use is diminished in modern horsemanship, advocates of classical equitation value the practice of long-lining greatly. This can be appreciated through the Spanish Riding School of Vienna, who has been training and breeding horses for over 450 years.
