A horse is a horse, of course of course. But horse property is a rare gem.
It takes more than acreage to make an equestrian property a standout. The horse facilities need to be stellar and the location horse-friendly, whether that means being close to trails or in a community of similarly equine-obsessed folks. And it doesn’t hurt to have a residence on the property that is equally gracious to its human inhabitants as the stables et al are to the horses.
If you’re looking for the ideal place to ride to your heart’s content and keep your horses—and you—housed in style the rest of the time, we found a handful of exceptional options in the Coldwell Banker Global Luxury® program.
