Horse grazing regulations

​​Unrestricted land

If land is unrestricted (ie it has no controls under the law), then you are allowed to graze horses on it without contacting us.

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

Viable agricultural fields

Viable agricultural fields will automatically be issued with a restriction for grazing of horses in the conditions of consent on any sale, transfer or gift of land under the law.

Vacant fields can be assessed on request. You are advised to advertise the land to let in the JEP and on the website 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.

Details of agricultural land and buildings being advertised on our website are available in the agricultural land and buildings section.
