Being a "horse person", and a Realtor, I know how important it is to find a Realtor who knows the language of other horse people. When I was looking for a horse property before I was a Realtor, agents I worked with showed me the most outlandish things they thought would be good horse properties. They didn't know the difference between a riding "ring" and a skating "rink". They showed me large sheds thinking it was ok to put my horse in it. They thought that a mile walking trail that would be great for a dog walk sufficed as my request to be on or near riding trails.
As a horse person and a Realtor, I know how important it is for your paddocks to have access to water, be horse safe, be easy to fence and maintain. I know how necessary it is to have the ability to move a horse trailer in and out, have a barn with stalls the horses won't kick out and is airy and horse healthy. If you want to be near fantastic riding trails and a great horse community, try looking for a horse property in Northern Dutchess County NY, in the corridor between Hopewell Junction and Rhinebeck. Here you will find a contiguous 50 or so miles of exquisite riding trails and horse community that regularly sponsors events such as hunter paces, horse shows and hunts.
