Horse Resources for Real Estate and Property Matters
Horses require land. As a result, real estate matters are not uncommon in the equine community. Whether you’re buying or selling a farm or ranch or seeking to build or rehab improvements like a barn or stables, real estate transactions and related dealings come into place. But equine real estate matters involve factors not generally considered for residential or other uses. On the Equine Real Estate Resources page, we have gathered some resources to help you find the right property for purchase or the right stable for boarding.

Equine Supplies: Tack, Equipment, and Feed

English versus Western riding, competition pursuits versus pleasure riding—each requires particular equipment. And each horse requires a routine feeding schedule with quality feed and hay and pasture time. Check out the horse resources on Equine Supplies Resources page regarding feeding information and suppliers in WV, PA, and OH.
