October 22 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pmFree
Equine Land Conservation Resource and My Horse University will co-host a new webinar, “Considering Land Issues Related to Small Property Horse Keeping,” on October 22, 2019, at 7:00 pm eastern DST. ELCR’s Denise O’Meara, PLA will present, focusing on the issues, opportunities and realities of horse-keeping in the backyard and small farm areas of America.
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?’
Presenter Denise O’Meara is the director of education at ELCR and an experienced landscape architect and presenter with almost 20 years of experience in the thoroughbred industry. Her interest in small property horse-keeping comes from youth experiences on Long Island, New York, where hundreds of horses are maintained in legally zoned, back yard stables, including her own childhood neighborhood.
