Some people just like the larger lots in an equestrian community. I call them the "space people". They are the ones that either love to watch horses pass by or alternately may try to block off the equestrian trail easement on the edge of their property.
The 'Boomers' are actually buying horses and trail riding and showing. The over 50 division in AQHA is as large as the youth division, and often larger than the under 50 amateur division at the shows. (The trainers LOOOOOVE the seniors because they want full service and buy nice horses) The pre-teen girls are still wanting horses.
What if that condo came with a central equestrian complex for your geriatric, smooth gaited trail riding horse???
