Though Texas, and Austin in particular, is a lot more than the Westerns would have you believe, there are a number of homebuyers who need a place to keep their horses. The many developments and neighborhoods that offer horse owners large lot sizes, community stable facilities, and other equestrian amenities give homebuyers lots to choose from. Austin horse community homes for sale are situated in several corners of the city and its surrounding small towns and offer a range of facilities, staffing, home sizes and styles, and price ranges.
A “developed” horse property features improvements like barns, arenas, round pens, tack and feed storage, breeding facilities, and other horse-related structures. Other properties might better be classified as “horse friendly,” in that they allow horses, feature large lots, or have some aspects that horse owners need, such as a pasture or a fenced area.
