Minimum acreage for 3-4 horses?
DH and I are in the wee beginnings of looking for a new home. One that is larger (shouldn't be hard we're at 800sq ft now!) and more ready for my equine children (9 acres of planted pine forest just isn't going to cut it without beaucoup $$$).
So we've got a few we like the look of and meet the above requirements. However, I've got this notion that I must absolutely have no less than 10 acres. Not all will be used for pasture or riding space(we like having a yard). I would most likely have 3 horses, 4 absolute tops. In a perfect world, I'd have at least 2 pastures to swap the horses on to give the grass a chance to grow back. Chatted with my trainer, she thinks I'm losing out on some other properties that have less acreage and would be fine.
So what say you, What is the minimum acreage you would want?
