Horse grazing regulations

​​Unrestricted land

You're allowed to graze horses on land that is unrestricted, meaning that it has no controls under the Agricultural Land (Control of Sales and Leases) (Jersey) Law 1974.

Land will automatically have agricultural restrictions imposed on it when it's sold or gifted. You should seek advice from us on what restrictions is imposed.

Viable agricultural fields

Viable agricultural fields are automatically issued with a restriction for grazing of horses in the conditions of consent under the law on any land:

  • sale
  • transfer
  • gift

Vacant fields can be assessed on request. We advice that you advertise the land to let in the JEP and on to gauge the demand for the land, if any. If there is no interest from bona fide agriculturalists, permission to occupy may be granted for the grazing of horses.
