Table 4E - Weed Control in Grass Pastures in the MSU Extension Weed Control Guide gives some chemical options for grass pastures. With any chemical application, you need to follow the directions for livestock re-introduction to the pastures.

In addition, the following link provides a great review of handling weeds in horse pastures:

Good Luck!
