Texans’ love affair with horses is legendary. Though horses are kept for many more reasons than back in the days of the Wild West, equines are still respected and revered in the Lone Star State and many lucky horses are considered members of the family as well as working partners. Finding a horse property where you can live with your horse in your own backyard is the real estate goal of many equestrians, and it can be had right here in the Austin real estate market and surrounding areas. We have an overview of three equestrian neighborhoods that cater to the lifestyle of horse owners.
Bay Country is an exclusive restricted access equestrian community. White rail fencing lines the streets and the homesites throughout the neighborhood, the area is reminiscent of Kentucky horse country.

Wide roads provide an added measure of safety for the equestrian.
