Finding a North Scottsdale horse property can ensure that you can stay close to your precious equine friends while saving you the tremendous costs of boarding the animals elsewhere. Equine real estate for sale in Scottsdale is, therefore a popular but readily honored request that Scottsdale realtors hear quite often.
In order to keep my clients that regularly attend equine shows in Scottsdale or require horse stables on their property, I have determined that the following three qualities are the most important when it comes to allowing you and your horses to enjoy yourselves.
Modern Barn or Stables Onsite
The biggest requirement, naturally, is that your Scottsdale property must have adequate facilities for your horses. These facilities should include horse stables or a barn that has enough room for all your needed stalls as well as all of the modern facilities one might expect when caring for their horses.
Among these features, having a good design for ventilation and cooling is most important considering the hot, arid North Scottsdale climate. Mechanical ventilation and cooling can be effective, but proper window and door placement can also make a significant difference — as much as 20 °F according to one horse expert.
Modern water facilities and safe food storage is also important. Some barns even include living quarters to make tending to the stable easier while offering a unique gathering place for small occasions.
Easy Access to the Stable Area, But Still Secluded
Having your horse stable and fields feel secluded is important when trying to enjoy your hobbies and reduce stress. After all, no one wants an interstate’s worth of traffic staring at you every time you want to ride. For this reason, the best horse stables are secluded on a property.
But they must also be readily accessible. Otherwise, you will have less motivation to go and check on your horses personally throughout the week. Too inconvenient of an access road also means difficulty towing a trailer to transport your horses, especially during an emergency situation.
Therefore, try to find the perfect balance between isolation and ready access.
Enough Room for the Horses
A proper horse property in North Scottsdale not only has stable room for the horses but also enough acreage to keep them happy. According to an expert from Stable Management, each horse requires at least 400 square feet or more for exercising lots. If you intend to allow your horses to graze, as many recommend, you will need at least two acres of grazing paddocks for the first horse and one extra acre for each horse after that.
This guideline ensures that you can keep your horses happy while giving you a spacious acreage that you can enjoy riding your horses on and giving them the chance to play and socialize with one another.
You can find all of these qualities in a horse property and more when you entrust a Realtor in North Scottsdale Arizona who can locate the best properties and negotiate for them on your behalf.
