I am a Career Realtor and a top producing Horse Property Specialist.
I have owned horses since I was an early teenager in Arizona. I began my breeding program in Colorado and have bred APHA performance horses for over 20 years. There are quite a few colts and fillies I bred under saddle here in Texas, in Arizona, and even as far north as Canada. I try to stay in touch with their owners to see their progress and am very proud of how they have all down. In Arizona in the early 2000's I showed my first paint colt Jigsaw's Debut on the AZ Paint horse circuit in Western Pleasure, Showmanship, and Trail. My husband and I have been Castlebrook Barn distributors, and we have also built horse facilities for Clients through my husband's contracting business.
After moving with my horses across the southwest even as an Agent, I know first hand there is a void in how to search and find horse properties. The listing services do not provide for an easy way to break them out so a Buyer can find what they are looking for. And there is a problem with Agents who don't know the difference between a developed horse property or just a horse friendly property, or a property that could be developed into a horse friendly property.
The definitions I use for the different types of properties are;
- a developed horse property which has improvements in place that includes things like barns, shed rows, run-ins, turnouts, round pens, arenas, tack storage, breeding facilities, feed storage, and other horse related components or
- a “horse friendly” property, one that may allow horses, or have some components horse owners are looking for such as nice pasture, a fenced area, and/or sandy loam soil that make it horse friendly.
Frequently properties are advertised as an equestrian or horse property when the property really is undeveloped and not even really what I would consider being "horse friendly". For example, many horse owners don't consider barbed wire fencing or soils that don't drain well horse friendly at all.
As your Buyer's Agent and Horse Property Specialist I will take the time to learn what it is you want and need for you and for your horses. Then I will glean through the "horse properties" on the market and create a condensed list of properties for you to consider. From a home on a small acreage with a horse set up to a Texas-sized horse ranch, or maybe even a piece of property you can develop yourself. I can find them all!
If you are Selling a horse friendly property, a home and horse set up, a training or breeding facility of any discipline or just beautiful ranch land that is perfect for horses I have the experience to market your property to attract the right horse property buyers and I would love to talk to you!
