Equestrian Homes For Sale
Due to a need for acreage, Austin equestrian homes can be found on the outskirts of town, primarily in surrounding communities. Equestrian homes can be single homes, part of a larger neighborhood, or, alternatively, acreage that allows for horse facilities to be added. Depending on the number of horses they can house, Austin equestrian properties may have a barn or more with stalls, an indoor or open arena, paddocks, hay-feed and general storage, and numerous other horse-related amenities.

Surrounding Area Equine Communities
In Driftwood, southwest of Austin, La Ventana is an upscale equine community that offers horse stables and trails.

The Polo Club in West Austin is an iconic neighborhood with riding trails and stables, plus numerous amenities. Dripping Springs, a town west of Austin on Highway 290, offers numerous equestrian communities, such as Saddletree Ranch and Bear Creek Estates. The Reserve at Lake Travis in Spicewood is a resort-style luxury community that offers both a full service equestrian boarding and training facility and waterfront access.

Within the western Hill Country and also east, north, and south of Austin, there are many opportunities to purchase homes on acreage that are suitable for development for horses. Pre-developed equestrian properties also are available and can accommodate numerous home style and lifestyle preferences. Whether developed or undeveloped for an equestrian lifestyle, homes that allow horses outside of equestrian neighborhoods have the benefit of a wider range of price points.
The Central Texas region also offers opportunities to purchase ranches, large spreads of land that have been used to raise various types of livestock for profit. These will include miscellaneous structures and usually will include a home. There are also gentlemen’s ranches, which are ranches where livestock are raised for pleasure rather than for a sustaining income. Raising and breeding horses can be a qualifying land use for an agricultural tax exemption in Texas so be sure to talk to your Austin Realtor® about the possibilities and to find properties that best fit your needs.
