THE HEALTHY HORSE COMPANY PASTURE SOIL ANALYSIS (MINERAL CONTENT).
To grow healthy grass suitable for horses it needs to be supported by healthy balanced soil ensuring the root-zone provides the grass with the correct balance of nutrients.
Horses grazing the land will then acquire the correct balance of nutrients through their natural diet. Our soil analysis is carried out by an ISO accredited laboratory, and our report identifies the health of your soil and any imbalances. It also carries recommendations on what you need to apply to the soil to balance any deficiencies/excesses. We test for Phosphorus, Potassium, Magnesium, Calcium, Sulphur, Manganese, Copper, Boron, Zinc, Molybdenum, Iron, Sodium, Cobalt, Iodine, Selenium, Organic Matter, Cation Exchange Capacity and pH. We and our soil consultants provide follow up advice to you and can supply tailor-made mineral dressings, at a competitive rate, based on the results of your analysis.
