I presume you haven't got one yet?
Overgrazed grass is I believed more highly stressed and so higher in fructans - and the advice is often to avoid this. In the UK it is fairly common to use the 'poorest' bit of land, that which has been trashed overwinter for instance.
Your best option is to talk to local pony owners, find out how they manage to keep their ponies trim and healthy. Now knowing what the climate and pasture is like where you are it is a little difficult to give you sound advice.
Get up, get going, seize the day. Enjoy the sunshine, the rain, cloudy days, snowstorms, and thunder. Getting on your horse is always worth the effort.
