Horse Property in Riverside County: Zoning Rule of Thumb

So here you go, a little something to keep handy regarding zoning and horse property in Riverside County:

RR:  5 mature horses per acre or any part thereof
A1:  5 mature horses per acre or any part thereof
A2:  5 mature horses per acre or any part thereof
W2: 5 mature horses per acre or any part thereof
RA:  2 mature horses on ea. 20,000 sf and 4 on first acre, 2 on each additional acre

Norco residents, or residential hopefuls....this one's for you:

The number of large animals allowed to be kept is controlled by zoning and lot size. The table below shows the number of animal units permitted on certain size lots in the A-1 zone:

 

 

 

Lot Size Acres # of Animal Units
20,000-24,999 sq. ft. .46-.57 acres 5
25,000-29,999 sq. ft. .58-.69 acres 6
30,000-34,999 sq. ft. .70-.80 acres 7
35,000-39,999 sq. ft. 81-.92 acres 8
40,000-44,999 sq. ft. .93-1.03 acres 10

 

 

 

 

An animal unit is defined as either one horse, two mini-horses, two mini-mules, one cow, one swine, two sheep or two goats. Swine; however, are a special case, and only one swine is permitted for each 10,000 sq. ft. of property area. All large animals must be kept (fed, sheltered or watered) at least 35 feet from any adjacent dwellings. Four dogs are permitted per residence, regardless of the size of the property.

 

Just a little cheat sheet to keep handy, enjoy!

Hi Beth I work with The Bald Guy Red Tie at Exit, I found this web page on my search. I have a client wanting to buy my listing that the Riverside zoning says it's a R-D zone. The propertry sits on 23,958 sq ft. It states that a horse can be kept on it at 50 ft away from exsisting residance. But im not seeing that on your cheat sheet. The address is 44714 Palm ave. Hemet, ca. 92544

Can you help me with this my clients want to buy it so they can put 1 horse on the property. (951)306-7501

Thank you

Hi Rodney!  R-D is Regulated Development.  Under this article it reads:

(5) The noncommercial keeping of horses, cattle sheep, and goats on lots or parcels over 20,000 square feet in area and 100 feet in width, provided they are kept, fed and maintained not less than 50 feet from any residence existing at the time such use is established. Two such animals may be kept on each 20,000 square feet up to one acre and two such animals for each additional acre.

As always, zoning can and should be verified with the County to determine possible uses.  The Riverside County website (Planning Dept) is a great resource and I would start there to confirm.  If there is an HOA, you will need to call them directly to determine what is allowable.

Best of Luck!
