Out west, where a lot of my family lives, equestrian neighborhoods have always been popular.
I had actually long forgotten the unique times I invested with buddies at their ranches. In fact the first time I ever rode an equine or drove a car, was on a Ranch outside Alabama. My daddy and I were friends and when my moms and dads removed for a journey, they asked if I could stay with their family on the ranch. My papa thought it would be an excellent experience for me. Thus many of the other experiences of my life, I simply pushed my ranch experiences away in the pages of my memory.
Recently those memories returned to trot once again across my stream of consciousness.
I suppose it took place a week earlier, when I invested an afternoon at the Alabama Equestrian Club at the invite of among my fathers close friends.
John had actually discovered some of the property writings that I had placed on the Internet and wanted finding out more about my writing.
As we visited the personal gated neighborhood where future house sites wait for development, a panorama of horsey visions swept across my mind like a famous Nebraska dust storm.
The miles of bridle trails, the wildlife, the natural springs and the gorgeous green space resonated with me. What a great location to produce a home in today’s world. The principle is incredible for the 21st Century where security and features are major considerations to anyone selecting a new home site.
Picture the pleasure and convenience of keeping your horses on your very own property. Now of course, this convenience requires plenty of open, fenced space and other considerations. It is estimated that you need to have about ten acres for every horse that you keep on your property.
The fact that these communities are well secured, as well as being gated, helps with obtaining great financing on the homes that are located there simply because most banks and private lenders see this as a big plus in placing value on the homes within these communities.
