Interesting; so the infinity runs are more about exercise in a small area (although there is obviously a lot of land available) than say a pasture paradise.

:thumbup: although I still yearn for dozens of crappy hectares to run them in a natural-ish way this is a great option to keep good feet.

True :lol: I am noticing good foot wear in the very dry weather and dry ground, made sandy by lack of grass and rain, where mine are moving constantly searching for a bit to graze through as big an area as I can give them, currently the big bottom field on a slope.

We have a few fairly crappy hectares at the new place but what's really making a difference is the steep hillside for shifting the pies :thumbup:

So basically these are turnout areas, with forage & water provided at opposite ends to make the horses move & not a managed grazing system like the paddock paradise? Handy if you live in a hot area with negligible grazing or have laminitic horses I suppose...
