Equestrian Communities in Florida

Horses are your passion. Well, horses, luxury living, and lots of sunshine. Lucky for you, there are some gorgeous luxury equestrian communities in Florida just waiting for someone of your caliber to call them home.

Wellington

If traditional riding and polo are what you are into, you can’t beat Wellington. Home to the U.S. Open, the Gold Cup, and the Whitney Cup, the city also draws more than 250,000 equestrian lovers to the National Horse show and Winter Equestrian Festival each year.

Southwest Ranches

Just 30 minutes from Ft. Lauderdale, Southwest Ranches is an affluent rural equestrian community that has it all. With spacious properties, boarding stables, plenty of trails, and a distinct lack of city-like sidewalks, the community prides itself on preserving a rural, equestrian lifestyle for its residents.

One example of an exquisite property currently available in Southwest Ranches is Court of Versailles. Consisting of three individual lots, this estate has a total of 10 acres and plenty of orchard-filled riding space within minutes of several equestrian facilities. Plus, it boasts a separate guest house, pool house, and more. With European-inspired architecture and design, you can enjoy the finer things in life after a day’s ride. Buyers will have the rare opportunity to buy this equestrian real estate at their price on February 4th, 2016. To learn how you can bid at the luxury no reserve absolute auction, call (866) 929-2243 or contact us with any questions.

The Oaks at Lake City

How about a ride through rolling hills and broad oak trees? This community is intent on preserving a natural feel, while giving residents close access to the bustling cities of Jacksonville and Gainesville. O’Connor Signature, one of the premier equestrian facilities in the world, was designed by Olympians David and Karen O-Connor and offers a full array of training services.

Ocala

Known as the Horse Capitol of the World,” Ocala boasts over 1,200 horse farms. The equestrian culture here is more casual than in Wellington, with many riders preferring a day’s ride through the countryside over polo, racing, or shows – making it a great place to buy equestrian real estate in Florida.

Bella Terra

Bella Terra is actually two communities in one. The Stables has beautiful homes with all the equestrian amenities you could want, while properties in The Estates make wonderful, peaceful places to ride near natural ponds, rolling hills, and grandfather oaks. One of the best equestrian communities near the Gulf side of Florida, Bella Terra is just minutes from Tampa Bay.
