Yes they can but will need supplementary feeding with hay and/or hard feed.. My own personal experience would say that one acre of pasture is insufficient to support two horses without supplemental feeding.
In general, professionals recommend two acres for the first horse and an additional acre for each additional horse (e.g., five acres for four horses). And, of course, more land is always better depending on the foraging quality of your particular property (70% vegetative cover is recommended).
Generally, with excellent management, one horse can be kept on as little as 0.4 hectares (one acre). Life will be a lot easier at one horse on 0.8 hectares (two acres). If running horses together, an owner would be doing exceptionally well to maintain a ratio of one horse per 0.4 hectares (one acre).
Ten horses per acre on up to five acres; Up to 50 horses; Ten horses per acre on five to ten acres up to 100 horses; Ten horses per acre on more than ten acres or more than 100 horses.2 мая 2013 г.
If you are attempting to figure the carrying capacity of land for a horse, then a good rule of thumb is 1-1/2 to 2 acres of open intensely managed land per horse. Two acres, if managed properly, should provide adequate forage in the form of pasture and/or hay ground. But this is highly variable depending on location.

However, about 1-1.4 pounds (0.5-0.6 kg) per hour (DM basis) is a reasonable range assuming quantity is not a limiting factor. This means that a horse with 24-hour access to good-quality pasture grazing 17 hours each day can consume up to 25 pounds (11.3 kg) as forage, which is plenty to satisfy his daily DM needs.5 мая 2016 г.
Responses to a horse-ownership survey from the University of Maine found that the average annual cost of horse ownership is $3,876 per horse, while the median cost is $2,419. That puts the average monthly expense anywhere from $200 to $325 – on par with a car payment.
