Paddock ParadiseThis is a featured page

Creation of this wiki site was inspired by Jaime Jackson's 2006 book, Paddock Paradise. From the back cover:


Based on Jackson's legendary research on wild horses, Paddock Paradise is a revolutionary model for safe, natural horsekeeping, hoof care, and the healing and rehabilitation of lame horses. The premise of Paddock Paradise is to stimulate horses to behave and move naturally according to their instincts. "This is the key," according to Jackson, "to having physically and mentally healthier horses." This unique and unprecedented model is adaptable to virtually all size horse properties, regardless of climate, and fits all equine breeds regardless of how they are used. Consider some of the following benefits for creating a Paddock Paradise for your horses:

Pokey Walks the Track- Encourages constant movement, as nature intended

- Greater movement means natural hoof wear with fewer bills

- Protects horses from dangerous founder-prone pastures

- Minimizes the need for warm-up exercise time before riding

- Helps address neurotic behavior by providing natural outlets

- Provides an effective means for diet and weight management

- Adaptable for breeding, foaling, multiple horse operations
