What Horse Ranchers Want In A Home

Brande Roderick

We have our list of must-haves when looking to buy a home, but what do horse ranchers want in a home? A pool? Perhaps a home theater, gourmet kitchen, and wine cellar? Yes, all of those, but chances are if you’re an A-list movie star, sports star, or chart-topping musician/singer, your number one priority is privacy.
  • Fencing: The right fencing is an essential part of your ranch setup. You'll want something that keeps even the most determined horse contained.
  • Shelter: There's no guarantee that the weather is going to be tolerable for horses all the time. There also may be horses you prefer to keep stalling. You can choose a barn and/or loafing shed as shelter. Here’s an example of a 6-stall MD barn that was installed into one of our properties and works extremely well for most environments.
  • Food and tack storage: Keep food safe from pests. Build storage within the barn or in a separate structure. If you have a large garage like this one, it’ll more than suffice.
  • Turnout: Turnouts are smaller enclosures that allow horses outside. 
  • Round pen: For training purposes, a round pen is a must. If your property isn’t large enough to keep around pen, there are plenty of properties in Southern California that offer nearby horse facilities for trainers and breeders. Take a look at this properties nearby horse amenities.
  • Arenas: There are both indoor and outdoor arenas.
  • Horse Trails: If you’re living in California, chances are there are numerous trail options for you to take your horses out for a ride. If you’re living in Southern California take a look at some of these trails as great options to take your horses and/or family out for the weekend.
