Grand Junction: Perfect for Horse Lovers
Moving to Grand Junction can be a great option for any horse lovers. As a city, it takes pride in caring for horses, with many horse-focused businesses and facilities on offer. It’s a great place to own, raise, and ride our equine friends.
It’s also a city known for its population of wild horses and is one of the few wild horse reserves in the USA. The entire range can be traversed both on foot and on hoof, with various different nature trails dedicated to riding. For example, the Highline Lake Trail is incredibly popular; you’ll take your horse 3.5 miles around the lake itself on grassy land teeming with local wildlife.
If you’re new to the equestrian world, Grand Junction is a good place to literally learn the ropes. Plenty of training centers can be found throughout the city. There are similarly many horse boarding options available, including locally owned stables and farms. If you want to acclimate your horses to the area before moving them into a property, you won’t have any trouble finding room for them.
Finding Suitable Horse Properties with Acres
If you’re keen to move to Grand Junction with your horses, you can easily cut out a good portion of searching time by only considering properties with acres. You need to be able to build barns, stables, and fields to graze in, and that takes a lot of outdoor space. Be sure to mention this to your estate agent in order to narrow down good potential properties.
You’ll also want to consider where the property itself is; living next to a busy road with horses can be difficult to adjust to, for example. However, if you’re not sure where to begin, working with a realtor that knows the equestrian market means you can also ask them to recommend features to consider that’ll make your home a dream to move into. At Kenna Real Estate, we’ve worked with many buyers that have horses to think about and will be able to suggest multiple home and land factors that should have weight on your final decision.
What to Look for in an Equestrian Property
When you attend a house viewing, you’re going to naturally investigate things like land quality and structural strength - obviously. However, there are more rules to consider when it comes to horses. Here are our tips for finding the best properties for an equestrian lifestyle:
- Check the local regulations. If you plan to keep horses at your home, that property is going to need zoning specifically for horses. Of course, if a property has acres, it’s probably already been used to house larger animals, but it’s best to double-check before you lay down any money.
- Who will you be living next to? Any neighbors need to be mindful that you keep horses and that you’ll be attending to them in the early and late hours.
- Can you imagine yourself expanding? The more horses you plan to bring onto the land, the bigger the boarding facilities and pasture need to be. A good equestrian property needs to have plenty of room to it, so you can build new stable and barn buildings over the long term.
- Work with real estate agents who know what they’re doing. You can’t do all the legwork, but a real estate company that has equestrian properties already on the books can do more than just point you in the right direction. At Kenna Real Estate, we ensure a wide variety of property types are available for anyone looking to buy.
