Question Planting grass

I have cleared 5 acres for horses and am trying to pick what kind of grass to buy. The property is pretty wet and muddy as it had machinery on it. Our climate is also wet and usually cold. I want a grass that will grow well in that environment and is good for horses!I am unsure what to buy and how much!
Thanks so muc

Best advice will come from the seed people in your local area. They will come and test the soil and then recommend a suitable grass seed through a mix of seed is best.

Once you have sown the seed it is best to keep horses off it for a year to allow the roots to establish so, you could cut it for hay the first year.
