Hi all, I am hoping you can help. We are new horse owners, boarding at a local facility. We would like to move them to our home but the area is heavily wooded. We have 5 acres of wooded property with somewhat of a gradual slope (when it gets to the back of the property it's a steeper incline). I thought I would fence the flatter part and excavate some nice wide horse trails. My friend came over and said our horses would be a ball of nerves in the trees, said they need wide open pasture to feel safe. I can excavate an area and make it pretty flat (not completely) that would be approx. 100 x 100 ft or maybe a little more but it would take some tearing out alot of trees. Would love your opinion-don't want my horses terrified for their lives all the time. Thanks!
