When it comes to equestrian properties, there are a lot of different types of buyers to consider. As Douglas Elliman agent, Sally Slater, points out, “You have show riders (jumpers and dressage), serious riders with Olympic aspirations, casual riders and kids who begin riding for fun but may want to be competitive as they get older. When you’re helping a client find the right property, it’s important to understand the nuance of what matters to them because there are a lot of factors to consider—everything from stall sizes and feed storage to zoning restrictions. Ring footing is always key though. A horse is only as good as their feet.”
Like a lot of Douglas Elliman agents who specialize in equestrian properties, Sally has extensive experience in the equestrian community, including being an active member herself since childhood. Whether you’re looking for an equestrian property in the Hamptons, Connecticut or Wellington, Douglas Elliman agents can connect you with best-in-show estates that meet all yours—and your horses—needs.
