Individuals interested in improving their horse-riding skills need to spend quite a hefty sum in order to have regular access to the amenities of equestrian centres. Membership packages tend to get quite pricy and the time spent with your favourite steed is limited to a couple of hours at most. That’s probably why unrestricted access to equestrian facilities at your own property is such a cherished dream for many horse-lovers.
The Canadian real estate market currently features quite a number of homes for sale with horse-riding facilities in different parts of the country. So, you can not only move to somewhere offering you a much healthier environment, but you can also get a place where you can look after your horse and go riding together every chance you get.
Take a look at five Canadian homes currently up for sale boasting equestrian facilities, with various price tags and different locations:
