Considerations to Make When Evaluating Horse Ranches for Sale
If it's been a lifelong dream to have horses and enough land to raise them, the dream can become a reality. Finding farms or Horse ranches for sale has never been easier. To make the search easier, the buyer should consider the amenities they need. Following are some of the most common features of an equestrian property for sale.
Because many horse ranches already have shelters and stables, the buyer should consider whether he or she would prefer to build a structure or use an existing building. Investigate these features during the search.
- Structural integrity. While there's a lot to be said for an old barn, safety should be a primary consideration
- Location. Consider stables' proximities to the house and storage facilities
- Ventilation. Proper airflow is essential to the horses' health
- Stall numbers. There should be enough stalls for all of the buyer's horses
Other features to look for include stall floors with proper drainage, a good feed room, and a center aisle with non-slip floors.
Stalls are one of the stable's most important parts. Buyers of horse property for sale should consider that the stable is there to protect the horses, and they should take steps to ensure the horses can't escape, hurt themselves, or damage the building. After security and safety issues have been addressed, comfort is the next consideration. While 10x10' stalls can accommodate small horses, larger equines need bigger stalls. Horse stalls with runs are a good buy but, in cold climates, the owner may need to close the stalls for additional comfort and warmth. Stalls should meet the user's needs. For instance, if the owner plans to board horses, a separate tack and storage area may be necessary.
For a horse ranch for sale to operate at its fullest potential, it's important for trucks to have easy access to the property. Regardless of the ranch's proximity to the main road, it is important to ensure the access road is well maintained and wide enough to allow large vehicles to enter and exit.
Most farms already have fences. When the buyer evaluates the property's current fence and begins to plan improvements, they should do so while considering the fence's primary function. On horse properties for sale, it's the fence's job to contain horses, prevent injury, and improve the property's aesthetic appeal. Some of the most common fencing options include those listed below.
- Wood. While it's generally safe and conventionally beautiful, it's costly and difficult to maintain.
- Vinyl. It provides the aesthetic appeal of a wood fence, but with greater durability.
- Electric fencing. Used along with existing fencing, an electric fence can discourage horses' natural tendencies to wander by creating a psychological and physical barrier.
- Barbed wire. It is not recommended for use based on the high risk of injury.
Turnouts and Pastures
Horse farms should have plenty of room to turn horses out and allow free roaming. Consider the number of animals to be boarded as well as the turnouts' intended usage when selecting a property.
If the buyer plans to do some arena riding, they should look for a property with an arena or ample room to construct one. Improving or building an arena can be expensive, as the building's footing can affect horses' soundness and the structure's maintenance requirements. Depending on the local climate, the buyer may need an indoor or covered arena.
Water and Electricity
Pastures and barns should have access to clean, fresh water for the horses' health and safety. Electricity availability can greatly affect the property's usability. Stables need power, even if it's only used in emergencies, and arena lighting may be needed if the owner plans to use the ranch to board horses for others.
Tack and Feed Storage
Having sufficient grain, hay, and tack storage on the farm is cost-effective and convenient. Proper storage can extend the life of horse feed by protecting it from the weather, and it can minimize the maintenance requirements of feeding implements. Additionally, secured feed storage can prevent loose horses from overeating and becoming ill.
Last, but not least, the buyer should consider the home on the horse ranch. It's important to buy a home that meets the family's current needs, but it's equally vital to choose a property that can be scaled up or down as changing needs dictate. When a buyer has a list of wishes, amenities, and priorities to consider, they will find it easier to refine the search.
