Acreage in the Eden, Utah area exists on which would be excellent land to raise horses. The land provides a scenic view for everyone to enjoy as they ride and care for the animals. As you develop your ideas for your horse property, do you contemplate having solely pastures, or pastures plus outbuildings.


When you are contemplating purchasing horse  property in the Eden, Utah area, you must decide what type of property you require for your horse(s).

Ascertain the type of foliage present on any land you intend to use as pasture for the horses. Be certain that you choose land which produces the proper nutrition for your animals, or be sure that it is available to you. Meet with a local vet to establish whether the land is proper for grazing, and what steps should be taken to replenish the plant life periodically.


How many horses will you keep on the Eden Utah property, and is there sufficient room to exercise the animals on the real estate you intend to use?

Again, consult with a local vet to see the recommended number of adult animals per acre for the type of land you are considering for your animals. Find out about any predators which might be a threat to horses, including parasites and any local diseases.


Is the climate and grazing potential up to the standards your horse(s) require?

This falls into the propriety of the particular land for raising and keeping horses. A local animal expert will be able to instruct you about the area and its use for horses.

As you choose from among the available properties, be sure that you verify that enough food will be available on the property unless you plan to bring food in to feed the animals.

Ascertain the availability of proper food and the expense of getting it to the horses during all seasons of the year. Assess the food storage potential available on the land.

Are the barn and fences in good repair or will you have to repair or replace them to provide accommodation and shelter for the horse(s)?

Are there any outbuildings on the Eden Utah real estate you want to purchase for your horses, or will you have to supply that prior to moving the horses on the land? If the outbuildings or fences are in disrepair, can you negotiate a lower price for the land?

Do you intend to build a residential structure on the property to  accommodate a care taker on the land who actually lives on the property?

What size structure will be needed? Consider insurance costs on the entire complex when you arrive at your budget for your operation. Will this be an owner-operated ranch for your horses, or will you staff it with employees.
