How DO YOU SWITCH A HORSE FROM STALL TO PASTUR BOARD?

So I'm moving barns and guiness Is going to be on pasture board. He will be out in a large dirt pasture all year with access to hay and salt and have access grass a few hours a day throughout summer and spring. Right now he is on grain and supplements. He is only 4 so the supplements are more like preventive not mandatory. So to switch him to just hay can I just take him off grain and supplements all together? Or do I need to wean him off? Also can I give him the supplements whenever I'm out just as a little boost? Or do they o ly work if given evreyday?He is on smarthoof and smart mantience. But I could cancel that and just get multi vitamin and give it to him whenever I go out and see him. Will that help? Sorry if that's confusing. But I'm just so stressed about it!!

There's nothing wrong with giving grain and supplements to a pastured horse. Just don't give him a ton of grain, just enough for him to eat the supplements. If you can't get it to him daily, I doubt it would do any good.
