That grass is racked up and fed to the horses.
It has nothing to do with grass clippings you get from a lawn mower.
This is called ZERO GRAZING and is praciticed by dairy farmers all over the country. It is more effecient then allowing free graze, no trampling , no fences required. Take the grass to the cow/horse.
You control the amount they get.
Again nothing to do with grass clippings.
