The line between a regular horse farm and a luxury equestrian estate is anything but fine. However, if you have a penchant for the finer things in life, consider the following your ultimate amenities for the ideal equestrian retreat.
1. State-of-the-Art Barn With Stables
From climate controlled wood and steel stalls to room for an on-site veterinarian, luxury equestrian estates should put the comfort and safety of its thoroughbred residents first. Other must-haves include: a covered riding area for year-round training, a farrier stall, an office complete with a kitchen and shower, a tack room, dust-free polymer footing, water trough indicators, sensor lighting and arena fans to drop the temperature by as much as 20 degrees when needed.
2. An Idyllic Setting
There are many great states to make your equestrian property home, including Florida, Colorado, California and Georgia. If being around or close to the water and the mountains is important to you, consider this luxury horse farm in Gainesville, GA that’s up for absolute auction on August 29th via Supreme Auctions. It not only borders Lake Lanier on three sides, it also rests at the foot of the Blue Ridge Mountains on 64 sprawling and beautifully manicured acres.
3. Creature Comforts For Discerning Humans
Creatures with two legs should be on equal footing with their demands as those with four. From custom kitchens, an infinity saltwater pool and a flowing floor plan to entertain family and friends to chef’s kitchens, imported alabaster chandeliers and antique wood wainscoting should be peppered throughout the grand estate as well. A guest cottage that caters to guests craving more personal space or to board a horse trainer are also welcome.
4. Modern Technology
A luxury equestrian estate should leverage technology to help ensure it’s as safe, secure and highly functional as possible. A smart-home system, for instance, can offer remote excess to open the main security should be coveted. A system that allows you to turn on lighting, control thermostat temperature, and even turn on the surround sound, from a remote control in and around the house is also an impressive addition. Another marvelous must-have for the barn: an automated, timed Full-Spectrum Lighting system to prevent the horses’ winter coats from coming in.
5. Access To The World, But A World Apart
Certainly, horse ranches are best kept as far away from the hustle and bustle of the city. However, situating a luxury equine property within at least an hour’s drive of a major metropolitan area will help to ensure greater access to top of the line products, events and care for humans and horses, alike. Plus, even country dwellers enjoy a night on the town every now and again – and access to major transportation hubs as well.
