Board Your Horses or Buy Property?

Real Estate
If you're a passionate horse owner, you're faced with a lot of decisions when it comes to your equine companion. One of the most important decisions you will make will be in regards to your horse's accommodations and boarding. But how do you decide between boarding your horse at a public stable or buying your own horse farm for sale in Ocala, FL? This article outlines the pros and cons of each option to help you in making this decision.

Pros of Boarding

Boarding your horse at a public stable has a lot of great benefits. Here are just a few of them:

• Socialization: Horses are social creatures, and if you only own one horse, it can be nearly impossible to give them the socialization they need. A public stable has other horses constantly on the property, helping to recreate the natural herd environment your horse instinctively desires. • Amenities: Most public stables also have great amenities available to their boarders, like riding arenas, jumping courses, or fun trails you can ride on. • Constant Care: Depending on the stable you board at, you can have constant care available for your horse. That means that if you get busy and can't make it to the barn in the morning, you don't have to worry about your horse being locked inside all day; there will always be someone present to turn your horse out and ensure they are fed.

Cons of Boarding

There are a few downsides to public stables. Some of them are outlined below:

• Cost: Depending on the stables' amenities and the amount of care they give your horse, the cost for boarding can be quite high. This can add up to a staggering sum if you have multiple horses. • Travel: Not all stables have a location that is convenient to where you live. When you board your horse, you may have to drive a considerable distance to see them. • Pecking Orders: In the herd environment, horses establish a natural pecking order. When you introduce your horse to a new "herd" at a boarding stable, they will have to find their place in that pecking order. This often involves your horse getting a few bites and scratches along the way. Though no serious injuries usually come of this, some horses don't want their horses becoming scarred in any way, especially if they are show horses.

Cons of Buying

Your other option is to buy your own property and keep your horses there. Here are a few drawbacks to that approach:

• Isolation: If you only have one horse, they will be quite isolated on your own private property. Of course, you can counter this by getting another horse or a few smaller herd animals like sheep, goats, or donkeys. • Cost: Obviously, buying a decent horse property is going to cost you a pretty penny. If you only have one horse, it may not be worth the cost. • Work: Owning your own property comes along with a lot of work. Not only do you have to be responsible for all of your horse's care, but you're in charge of property maintenance too.

Pros of Buying

Of course, there are many benefits to buying some private property for your horses as well. This list shows just a few of those benefits:

• Proximity: When you own your own property, you can live on the same land as your horses. This allows you to saddle up and ride whenever you want. • Only Your Horses: You don't have to worry about aggressive horses or new pecking orders when you have your own property. Your horses already know each other and have settled into their herd. • All Yours: You can add whatever amenities or features you want your stable to have. You can get the perfect horse property for you and your horses, because it's all yours to customize.

Keep these pros and cons in mind when shopping for horse farm for sale in Ocala, FL, or when looking at boarding stables.
