Webinar Topic: Considering Land Issues Related to Small Property Horse Keeping - Date/Time: October 22, 2019 at 7:00 pm ET - Speaker: Denise O'Meara
Director of Education, Equine Land Conservation Resource
Webinar Description: Using examples from several communities around the country that allow horses to be kept on small acreage and residential properties, you’ll learn how your community’s zoning practices, prevalence of existing horse-related activities, land characteristics, building codes, tax structure, state regulations and other factors enter into the decision to keep horses at your residence. Questions such as: ‘Does your community identify itself through horses? Are there places and trails already in place to ride? and, Am I prepared to do the work and upkeep that horses and their surrounds require?
