mmmm i give my horses 2 'hard' feeds a day, one at 6.15am and i the afternoon around 5.30pm (whenever i finish work). Otherwise they are grazing all day. So if i was to ride in the morning i would let them have 45min to a Hour. It depends on the type of work. Mustering i leave them for 2hours, but with the flat work i usally only wait 45min. Hope that makes sense :roll:
Acually can any one find out how long it takes to a horse to digest their food?
But horses are ment to graze allday, cause they are grazing animals, would it matter? Weird i haven't really thought this much in depth about this........... :P
