How much acreage is enough?
My mother and I are currently in the market for a horse property. We are switching it up to 2 jumpers, probably pretty tall ones at that.
I will be at school with my horse boarded most of the year, moms, however will be at home.
Would a 5 acre property be enough?
I assume that 1 acre would be dedicated to the house and barn, then the remaining portion of that acre would belong to the arena, as well as a portion of the rest of the property, leaving about 3.5 acres for grazing.
We live in Central Indiana, it rains plenty, and there are many green pastures. We would never buy a property without green pasture anyways.
