Used it before, in a paddock. Works fine....for a while. Unless you get the cured stuff, which lasts longer, and in different sizes, and pay close attention what type of wood is in it, it helps only temporarily and can be even dangerous. No problem in an arena, but with horses free I'd be super careful (black walnut, poisonous plants)
