How much land do you need to have horses?

Posted by: Admin User

Posted on: Mon Jun 05, 2017

Are you ready to finally purchase that home with horses you have always dreamed of?  Not sure how much land you need to have some horses?  Are you prepared to keep the horses on your property?  There a lot of things to know about owning and operating a horse property.  Arizona Horse Properties tries to help with the following tips:

 

- If you plan on purchasing in Yavapai County, you are allowed to have up to two horses per acre of land that you own.  That doesn’t necessarily mean you want to max the law out though.  Studies from North Carolina State University suggest two acres for the first horse and one additional acre for each additional horse.  This acreage allows you to implement different management plans without over-grazing your pastures.


- Of course, you can house more horses on less land if your paddocks will only be used for turnout.  Studies show that a ranch or small farm in the southwest may only provide a 20' x 40' run for a horse, yet those horses remain as healthy as horses running in a 40-acre field.  For physical well-being, horses do not require room to run, only move around freely for at least a portion of every day.


- You also want to consider that your horse will need some non-grazing area to relax and de-stress.  It is recommended that you allow at least 400 sq ft per horse for this activity.  Of course, the smaller the space provided for the horse, the more you will need to pick up the manure.  You will also want to make sure there is plenty of fresh water and feed for ALL the horses in your stable.


- And lastly, you will want to consider building a barn or stable if there isn’t one already.  Horses may not need shelter during winter, but it has been determined that their health could be effected if left outside all year round.


Arizona Horse Properties in Prescott would love to take some time and show you how nice Arizona land is for horses.  We hope you enjoyed reading some things to consider when considering a horse property.  If you have any questions or would like to schedule a viewing of a particular property, please contact us by calling 928-713-7501.
