Has anyone had any experience using a track system on the high desert? I am thinking of putting one in so the horses will be more likely to move about during the day, the only problem is that all the examples I see are in areas that, well, grow grass. Where I am at we get about 9 inches of rain and rain equivalent on very young volcanic ash soil, therefore our land is mostly sage brush, rabbit brush, some antelope bitter brush, and bunch grasses which the horses pull out by the roots when they try to graze.
Is it still ok to implement a track system without the daily romp into the center pasture that so many seem to emphasize?
Do you have any tips or tricks for successful paddock paradise tracks?
