Types of Equine Real Estate Resources in WV, PA, and OH
Real estate used for the boarding, raising, training, or recreational or professional use of horses must be expansive. Whether in the mountains of West Virginia or the rolling hills of Pennsylvania, or Ohio, properties that serve the horse industry or its enthusiasts should include certain features:
- Pastureland with healthy soil
- Adequate access to clean water
- Good drainage
- Secure fencing
- Easy access to the community or highway
- Proper zoning where necessary
- Adequate outbuildings for housing horses, feed, and equipment
The lists include properties and vendors in and around West Virginia where you can find places to house and enjoy your horse companions.
Horse Properties for Boarding
Many people who own horses board them at special facilities, either because they don’t have adequate space themselves or because the space offered by a boarding stable is superior or provides extra care, training, or socialization for its horses. Finding the right boarding barn for your horse first requires you to consider your needs and budget.
Determining your preferences and needs is the first step to choosing a boarding barn. Here are some factors to consider:
- What amenities does the boarding barn offer?
- Is someone available 24/7?
- Does the facility have ready access to riding areas such as arenas, trails, or otherwise?
- May you use your own veterinarian, farrier, trainer, or other service provider?
- What are the facility’s hours and days of operation?
- What type of storage space is available for each horse’s tack, feed, and equipment, and is it secure?
- How far is the facility from your home?
- May you use your own feed and hay?
