The Whole Horse Podcast | Episode 115 | Healthy Land, Healthy Horses with Jane Myers of Equiculture

I was so excited to welcome Jane Myers of Equiculture onto the podcast for our first episode of 2024! Jane is a wealth of knowledge on the subject of land and pasture management, and an expert on equine grazing behaviour. We covered a lot of ground (pun intended!) chatting about the ways in which horse owners can learn to keep horses in a way that creates a mutually beneficial interaction between the land and the horses who live on it. We also discussed the importance of keeping horses in herds, prioritizing access to forage and grazing, and how these management practices ultimately create safer, healthier horses and environments! This topic is very near and dear to my heart, and it was inspiring to hear Jane’s practical perspective as well as her many success stories implementing her methods.

As I say in the episode, I really hope to see more and more horse owners feeling empowered to make changes in their horse-keeping practices to make for a more sustainable and supportive habitat for all.

Jane Myers teaches horse owners worldwide how to manage horses and the land they live on in a way that is sustainable, good for horse welfare, good for wildlife, creates biodiversity and saves humans time, expense and energy. She is highly qualified (having a Masters Degree in equine grazing behaviour) and has researched and taught these subjects worldwide for many years. Jane, along with husband Stuart, are the authors of several books on these subjects. These vitally important subjects are gaining momentum in the modern world.
