What is Paddock Paradise? "A remarkable natural environment for horses!" Welcome to "Paddock Paradise," natural horse care advocate Jaime Jackson's groundbreaking adventure in natural boarding for horses! Based on Jackson's legendary research on wild horses, Paddock Paradise is a revolutionary model for safe, natural horsekeeping, hoof care, and the healing and rehabilitation of lame horses. The premise of Paddock Paradise is to stimulate horses to behave and move naturally according to their instincts. "This is the key," according to Jackson, "to having physically and mentally healthier horses." This unique and unprecedented model is adaptable to virtually all size horse properties, regardless of climate, and fits all equine breeds regardless of how they are used. Consider some of the following benefits for creating a Paddock Paradise for your horses: - Encourages constant movement, as nature intended. - Greater movement means natural hoof wear with fewer bills. - Protects horses from dangerous founder-prone pastures. - Minimizes the need for warm-up exercise time before riding. - Helps address neurotic behavior by providing natural outlets. - Provides an effective means for diet and weight management. - Adaptable for breeding, foaling, multiple horse operations. Paddock Paradise Includes: - Template for making your paddock - Hundreds of ideas - Sample paddocks created by practitioners and horse owners - Resources True Natural Boarding for Horses! What Horse Owners have to say about Paddock Paradise: "I could not be happier with my Paddock Paradise. The horses move all the time." "They keep their weight down easier than before and the top line muscles in my 20 year old has shown some development." "Their hooves are also better because they are on hard dry ground. I've seen improvement in concavity in both horses." "The horses seem to love it - they are always on the move!"show more

Review quote

"Our three horses are enjoying their new 'paradise'. They have lost weight, gained endurance, begun exhibiting increased happy herd behaviors AND their bare feet look wonderful. We've had the perimeter of two acres on track since March 12 and we're already working on more. Thank you for another great idea." (Tennessee) "First of all thank you for your wonderful book - it answers so many of the questions and problems that have been in my head now for the last 2-3 years. So excited what a brilliant plan." (United Kingdom) "I ordered your Paddock Paradise book last Sunday and it arrived midweek. By the time my husband got back from out of town on Friday pm. I had my paddock planned. It took me a day to convince him, but now he is also buying into the idea on the basis that it will be less work for him. Plus we will be able to have some 'pretty green pasture' in the off track area. He has always wanted 'photogenic pastures'. We are adding on to our indoor arena, so the timing was perfect. We have a tad bit less than four acres for the pasture, but we do have some great hills that will really work their muscles. And I swear our largest 'crop' in Wisconsin is ROCKS. I will no longer have to pick them out of the pasture." (Wisconsin) "I will make sure that everyone will know about your books and your site! We are looking forward to helping our poor pony who is foundered. We can't wait to use your methods on our stallion, too. Thank you for writing these books and making them easy to understand for the normal layperson." (Great Lakes)show more

Our customer reviews

Will never keep horses the same way again. We found this book while searching for a way to save our 16 year old navicular quarter horse and today after applying everything we learned from Paddock Paradise and other books by Jaime Jackson he is symptom free and acting like a youngster again. Navicular Syndrome and Laminitis do not need to be a death sentence for your horse. If you love your horses you should apply these more

This book was EXCELLENT! Jaime Jackson has done his homework. He communicates the Paddock Paradise concept in easy-to-understand terms for the novice, but also grounds his research in science and field observation of the Great Basin herds, from whom the track concept is derived. The book includes great pictures and diagrams and lots of practical advice. I am totally sold on this concept of natural horsekeeping and plan to fully implement the PP model when we set up our new property for horses. (Check out the Paddock Paradise Facebook page, too - tons of great info and discussions!) HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!show more

I love this book and others by Jaime Jackson and my approach to horsekeeping and all management practices have changed immensely since I the first time I read one of this books. My own horses have been on two different Paddock Paradises - and they truly seem more at ease, more secure, healthier, and the amount of movement and body condition they do on their own is amazing and transformational. You might have to see it for yourself to believe it. And with all the new information in the past 15 years or so about the laminitis risks of horses grazing freely on most grass pastures, it just makes so much more sense. I created one at a farm I owned and now have one on some property I lease. You can do a lot fairly easily and inexpensively and bring everything with you when you move! Wonderful for all!show more

This book has completely altered the way I see all things related to horses, in a highly beneficial way for both the horse and myself. Paddock Paradise holds the horses well being above all else and allows space for humans to fit in, in a harmonious way. Highly informative, backed with obvious more
