Horse properties are very specialized. Whether you are looking for Equestrian Properties or Luxury Homes on Acreage it is essential that you deal with a professional that has experience in both fields, Equestrian and Real Estate. It took me some time and a lot of riding throughout the valley to figure out the Pros and Cons of different neighbohoods. For example there are parts of the Las Vegas valley that are extremely rocky, while there are parts that are very soft and excellent for your horse's footing.
If you are into showing and mainly do arena work it might be OK for you to be in a rocky area so long as the property has been properly graded, rocks removed and the proper dirt/footing put in place, especially in the arena and round pen. For those who mainly trail ride, it would be esential to be in a neighborhood that has soft ground and minimal to no rocks. It is no fun to have to treat your horse for an abcess caused by a rock. There are also horse neighborhoods that virtually have no access to trail riding while there are others with open spaces and are rural preservation neighborhoods protected for horse riders and people walking. The old adage, location, location, location is crucial for horse owners.
