Pastures & Paddocks
Carefully developed pastures from horse farm experts
Our agistment pastures have been carefully developed under advice from small-acreage horse farm expert, Jane Myers. They feature a variety of native grasses and different herbs, and we implement a system of rotational grazing to allow for maximum plant growth ensuring the nutritional value is maintained at its best. The result is that our horses can selectively graze on a natural, healthy diet of various herbs and grasses. Native pastures for the healthiest, most natural grazing.

Different paddocks to suit
Our property has been divided into a number of paddocks (of varying sizes) and we only offer agistment to a strictly limited number of horses. Our paddocks are shaded by native tree cover, and are accessed by wide internal laneways that provide access to a large central point watering trough.
The benefits of a central point watering system are that the horses keep coming back to an area where they can be easily monitored, or for exercising/veterinary purposes. We don’t herd our horses from one paddock to another, but allow them access to open paddocks via our open laneways system. Horses on stable/paddock board have use of individual private paddocks included in their boarding option. Wide laneways throughout, allowing safe and easy access to your horse.
Idyllic, Tranquil Settings
All our paddocks are professionally fenced with horse safe fencing (including electric stand-offs and high visibility white sighter wires) and are easily accessed via wide, safe, internal laneway systems.
At Manna Park, we offer an idyllic, tranquil setting that provides the perfect environment for your horse to relax, and gives them the opportunity to socialise in a safe environment.
