Private Communities

Does anyone here live in a private/gated community that has equestrian facilities? I'm just curious about how they work.

Do you pay board like you would at a regular stable, and what happens if you sell your horse?

Are you allowed to ride anywhere you want?

How do they make decisions about things to do with the barn?

Do you have to apply to live there?

Can people be kicked out of the community?

I don't live in one but I toured one when we were looking at houses. We ended up not taking that job hence not living in that town but it would have been almost ideal. The one we looked personally owned between 2-5 acres and were allowed 4 or less horses. There were already homes and barns built on site and they did more or less "match" each other. Im not sure if there were empty sites where you custom built available. In the center of the whole development there was an outdoor and indoor and plenty of trails. The dues were expensive but you had access all the time. It would have been awesome. I guess it was ideal for me because you didn't have much land to maintain but had ALL that riding space. But we didn't end up living there because the job was better here...

I forgot the last two questions...they were very strict about "changing" the property. You had to send in applications to make structural changes to the property and it would have to be approved. And you couldn't get kicked out technically but I think you could be fined.
