These type of communities are around but never have I seen one so high class tailored to the competative horse and rider.

Wow. Wonder if there will be a trainer. The only thing I would worry about is a bunch of self entitled millionaires thinking they have the right to just jump, jump, jump when my little millionaire self was trying to take a lesson. I couldn't really get a feel for how the training aspect of it would work. That said, as soon as I cash my Mega Millions check, I'll be looking into it.
Yes, we could chip in for a lot, build a barn and some turn-outs and then just park and live in our tents and rv's! What, that's not allowed?
I'm sure the lots are millions, haven't asked though. I don't think there will be one trainer, I think each person will build their own barn and they would then have their own trainer come over and teach them in one of the 9 different arenas/riding parks! Sounds like lots of space!
I love how many bridle paths there are, it just seems so heavenly to hack a few miles over to the arena, jump around a little, and hack back. No busy roads to cross, rocky or treacherous footing, llamas to pass, etc. If I heard right, you can even park your horse under one of the many gazebos if you get too hot or tired and have a glass of lemonade or something!

Maybe it's just me but does that mean every lot will have some form of barn, be it one or two stalls as a run-in or a big center-barn aisle? I wonder if they have rules about what you could build on each lot...
Sorry, but I think it is an overpriced joke as a training center. O.K. as a residential development.
No resident trainers, because there are no commerical barns...
A bunch of houses on 2-10 acre lots, everyone hacking to the arenas?
Maybe it is just me, but I wouldn't want to hack 20 minutes each way to an arena every time I wanted to ride.
Without trainers in control of the arenas, it is just a free-for-all. I've been at a facility with a huge covered arena shared by multiple trainers, each with their own outdoor arena - the indoor gets small very quickly when there are a lot of horses at once.
I don't understand how they can talk about developing future champions in a such a situation. If they were going to build barns with the facilities, but not just arenas and a club house...
It reminds me of a massive version of the Quito Golf and Tennis club I boarded at when I lived in Ecuador. Except here you can ride on the "golf course" LOL. Except in Ecuador I could take as many lessons as I wanted for the equivilant of $100 USD a week, I boarded 3 horses for less than $900 a month (and that included ALL services - tacking, untacking, bringing my horses to the ring so that I didn't have to walk back up to the stable, cleaning tack, packing myself/my horses for competitions, etc., etc. etc.). I'm thinking you'd have to add a few zeros on to that price tag to get the same service at this club!!
Nine out of ten times, you'll get it wrong...but it's that tenth time that you get it right that makes all the difference.
