Creating Horse Friendly Communities
Planning and zoning decisions can affect how land is taxed, what it may be used for, and which standards and regulations are applied to it. These regulations determine not only whether individuals may keep horses on their own property, but also whether horses have access to community parks and trails. ELCR offers users the tools they need to understand land use planning, zoning ordinances, and their implications for horses and horse-related activities. In this section you will find a primer on terms and processes, sample letters, and tools to support involvement in planning and zoning in your community. Our website also provides tools for community planners to help them understand how to include horses and horse-related activities in their planning efforts.
