Why a Bluegrass Kentucky Horse Farm?The Bluegrass region has the most fertile pasture soil found in the USA. It is the perfect location for raising strong horses and their colts.
When looking for your own farm here in Kentucky you need to keep a few basic principals in mind. The improvements on a property ie, the house, barn and fencing will tend to deteriorate while the land beneath appreciates. Try to imagine the land with nothing on it. If you still love it then this may be the farm for you. The three things that give the land itself value are the lay (or topography), the soil quality, and the location.
The further from Lexington you drive, the cheaper land can be purchased. This is because the topography tends to become steeper and the soil poorer. Lexington and the counties surrounding Lexington: Scott, Bourbon and Woodford as examples, have excellent, horse-suitable land.
That said, the needs of different horses vary wildly. Thoroughbred babies tend to be accident-prone and need level or gently rolling land. Hunter/Jumper types need small paddocks on near level ground. Ponies and pleasure horses often get along fine on steeper land.
The lifestyle of your horses also needs to be taken into consideration. Some horses are essentially kept outdoors and a well designed run in shed may be sufficient for their comfort. Others are mostly indoor horses and require less land per head as a consequence. The type of horses that you have, or intend to acquire are key to any decision making.
Proximity to facilities that will be of use to you is also important. In this area this may include equine hospitals, interstate access, Keeneland racetrack, Thoroughbred Training Center or Kentucky Horse Park along with shopping and schools.
There’s a lot to consider when finding your dream horse farm in Central Kentucky. We can help you put the pieces together and find the right Bluegrass horse farm for you!
Here are some property features we’ll help you consider:
The Barn: The most important element of a barn is the size and location on the property. You’ll want to ensure that the barn is large enough to meet your needs and that the location will allow you to easily work within the property.
Pastures: A good quality pasture will be a source of exercise and nutrition, and their management will have a direct effect on the health of your horses. We’ll help you determine whether the pastures we look at are right for you and your horses, from seed type to paddocks.
Water: The Lexington, KY area is fairly lucky when it comes to natural water sources but we still experience drought conditions in some summer months. That’s why water management systems and supplies are a crucial aspect to consider when looking at farms. We’ll help you evaluate water sources to ensure your horses drink, regardless of the weather.
The Residence: Most horse farm owners live at their farm, which makes the house just as important as the farm itself. Make sure the real estate you purchase has the full package and that the house will suit your needs for the next several years.
