There are countless stories about people who have given up living the city life in exchange for country living. Horse owners who rely on boarding to maintain their beloved animals often dream about having their own property. As an alternative to large swaths of land, a equine enthusiast may consider a ranchette property. Novel horse owners can foray into land ownership.
Equestrian estates are vast in many cases and may span well over 20 acres. A ranchette is a much smaller area of land that may consist of as little as 2 acres. For many a small property is more affordable but still offers the benefits of country or rural living.
Horse enthusiasts who dream of having their team of equines will find a host of real estate options available. In the cities of Lexington, Kentucky and also Louisville, potential buyers can work with a equestrian real estate expert to locate small farms or what some call a ranchette.
Small Horse Farm Properties
The fact of the matter is that even with a few acres, owners can develop the ranchette property of their dreams. With 2-4 acres, it is possible to build a small horse property with enough space for a small team of horses. Horses need space to grow, graze, exercise and thrive. Moreover, smaller ranches which are located near larger areas of land may provide access to riding trails. Selecting a horse farm that is suitable for one’s personal aspirations is about location but there are many other aspects to keep in mind.
Some prospective buyers, depending on their budget prefer to build a horse property so that it has everything they could ever ant or need. In other cases, buyer may prefer properties that were previously owned or sold “as is”. “As is” properties may require some cosmetic work on existing facilities. Provided the budget is available to invest, renovating horse farms can be a rewarding experience.
