Equestrian Property Update

Horse and field

Our specialist Equestrian department have been busy over the past 12 months and currently have a number of Equestrian properties both on the market and under offer, ranging from pony paddocks, to larger Equestrian properties offering the competitive rider a superb range of facilities.

Equestrian homes are hard to come by and quite often the house is of less importance than the facilities that a property holds. A recent article in Horse and Hound reported that venues up and down the country are putting large sums of investment money into improving their competition facilities for riders.

The report stated that many competition centres are choosing to enlarge their outdoor arenas to enable year round events and are investing a lot of research and money into the right surfaces for these arenas. We see this as encouraging for the Equestrian Property market, as it shows that there is a growing interest in Equestrian sport, and therefore Equestrian homes.

We remain an affiliated agent of Equestrian Property 4 Sale, and are delighted to report that our sponsorship continues with Event and Dressage riders Owen Cooper and Katie Richards, and we are also a sponsor of Allen’s Hill Competition Centre, based in Pershore, Worcestershire.

If you have an Equestrian property to sell or rent, or would like to diversify your farm or smallholding into an Equestrian property, or perhaps even have ideas on setting up a competition centre, our dedicated department are able to offer advice on all aspects from sales and lettings through to planning and diversification.
