Planning Layout!

We finally bought a property big enough to have horses!! It is 6.2 acres total. It is 330' wide by 824' long. So just a rectangle. It's flat and is currently a farmers field. The house/septic will e going on the front left. (If looking at it from the street). Wondering what your ideas were for placement of certain things like pastures, small pole building/lean to, paddock, riding area, ect. I know it might be hard but even just saying to keep paddock/pastures away from say the muck pile would e helpful! Thank you! All of you small property horse owners need to give me advice on how to keep GREEN pastures! There will be up to 3 horses, but probably no more than that. Thanks again!

Personally I would put the barn inbetween the 2 pastures. Access to either depending on which gate is open. With a catch pen straight off the barn.

That's to assume I wanted a barn..
