Morrison Equestrian Homes
Morrison is a very small and close knit town in Jefferson County, Colorado. At the time of the last national census, Morrison had just 430 residents, making it the kind of country community where everyone is friendly and supportive to each other. If you’ve always dreamt of living in town that is small in size and big on beauty, somewhere that you can ride your horses through the countryside every day, then there is nowhere better to live than Morrison Colorado.
Morrison may be small in size, but it’s tiny main street makes a big impact. You’ll find antiques shops and restaurants serving local specialties to an incredibly high standard. Morrison is also a mecca for horse riders and equestrian enthusiasts thanks to the hiking path that circles Bear Creek on the outskirts of the town and and leads to an extensive trail system and reservoir which is perfect for enjoying an adventurous ride to exercise your horse. Horse-friendly homes are in abundance in Morrison, and you’ll find a range of luxurious homes with large acreages suitable for dozens of horses, and smaller ranches with plenty of space for a horse or two.

A Range of Housing Options Throughout Morrison
If you’re looking for a smaller home in the center of town then many of the ranches and estates that surround Morrison provide boarding facilities for horses, so that you can home your animals nearby. However, many people are keen to avoid the additional expense involved in boarding their animals, and would prefer to keep them on their own property. If this sounds familiar then it could be time to start searching for your first equestrian home in Morrison Colorado.
If you have never owned horses before, but have always dreamed of moving to Colorado, buying a ranch, and having a hack or two in your back yard, then a good rule of thumb is to secure your property before you start thinking about acquiring your horses. This will give you time to get to know your new property, to make any renovations it may need, and to learn the basics of horse ownership in your local area before those horses arrive. There are several local groups based throughout Colorado who will be able to teach you the basics of modern horse ownership and ensure that you are a happy and confident owner to happy and confident horses, if you are new to horse ownership and feel you would benefit from this additional support.
Finally, remember that it is better to start with one or two horses then increase the numbers of livestock you own than to begin with too many horses and find that you don’t have the space or the time to give them the care that they demand. Colorado law and regulations require that livestock demands that your livestock be branded before it is sold to you and that have regular inspections of this brand if you travel more than 75 miles away from your own ranch (for example, for horse shows or race events). It is also worth noting that Colorado law dictates that every livestock animal has a certain amount of acreage – a good rule of thumb when buying a property is to have 2.5 acres worth of space for every horse that you wish to own. If you have a certain number of horses in mind for your new ranch lifestyle then discuss this with your realtor, as they will be able to inform you of how much land you should acquire to fulfil the legal obligations for this level of horse ownership.
