What To Look For In Horse Properties

If you are on the lookout for horse properties that would be suitable enough for your horses, you will want to spend a little bit of time going over the following information. This way, you will have an easier time finding the best property for your needs.

Room To Run

When it comes to looking at horse properties, it is important to remember that it is not just about having the room for the horses to run but about the kind of room that is available. Is all of the fenced in area full of dips and gofer holes that the horses could trip over? Are there a lot of trees that you would need to spend money clearing out? If you are getting the property for a cheap enough amount, it might be worth it to invest some money into fixing up the area for your horses to run.

Fencing In Place

You will want to carefully examine the fencing that is currently up for horses. Do not assume that there might only be one or two bad spots and those can be easily fixed. You would not want to go into this thinking that, only to later realize that all of the fencing is basically shot and needs to be replaced with a brand new fence. Depending on the size of the property, that could end up being a major expense. This is why you will want to take the time to personally check out all of the fencing before you make the purchase. If you do happen to find a lot of problems but still want the property, you could always use those issues as leverage to see if you can get the asking price reduced some.


Even if the space is perfect for horses and even if you know horses were on that property in the past, you will want to make sure that the town will allow you to have your horses there. The last thing you want to do is to make the purchase only to later find out that the ordinances do not allow for horses on the property, or as many horses as you would like to keep there.

Now that you are a little more prepared, you can start you search for the perfect horse properties. Make sure that you are talking with a real  estate agent and express your interest in properties that will be a perfect fit for your horses. Contact an agency, like Keller Williams, for more help.
