Which Area is Right for You?
Which community would be the best fit for your needs?
Northern Colorado seems to have the largest number of large training barns, (of all disciplines).
- This density garners the associated support services of vets, farriers, trainers, and tack stores.
- Consider HOA restrictions on the number of horses or large animals allowed.
- A conservation easement can limit the size, location, and number of structures you may build on your property. For instance, an indoor arena, may be prohibited by a conservation easement.
South of Denver, Sedalia, Franktown and Elizabeth are beautiful and definitely horse country.
- The proximity of facilities, trainers, and amenities (tack shops etc.) is a bit further out. Land zoning and use are also considerations for having horses at home. All counties have a limit on the number of large animals allowed per acre. Educate yourself on this as you decide where you want to purchase property.
- Parker hosts the Colorado Horse Park – a venue that supports a variety of equine events and competitions.
