Keeping a horse on this small an acerage would be a pain, but it is possible. Pea gravel is your best friend if you do this LOL. It will keep the sacrifice area from becoming a muddy bog. I know some folks prefer sand, but if you do watch for sand impactions which can cause colic!

I was on a livery yard here in the UK where the horses had an 1/2 acre paddock to live in. And we were charged 30 per week with a stable. Your place is not ideal but with bought in hay it is doable.

The Paddock paradise track sytem would work, it keep my fat ponies on that system during the summer
