Equestrian property (also referred to as an equestrian community or horse community) is different from standard residential property in that it is specifically designed to accommodate homeowners and their horses. It is very common for there to be several equestrian properties adjacent to each other, in order to develop an ideal community for horse-lovers. These kinds of properties are typically located in rural or suburban areas and include enough acreage for riding trails and stables. Each individual property is usually gated to provide privacy for both the human and equine residents. These communities provide the perfect balance for those who want the option to socialize with other horse owners and the ability to escape into the seclusion of their vast acreage.
