We have been looking in the Bennett area for horse property. We have decide to include the Elizabeth/Parker area in our search as well. Can anyone give me a feel for which area is most horse friendly? I have been reading alot about the restrictions on how many horses are allowed in certain areas. Need to find a place that will allow 3-5 horses, and not have to worry about complaints from the neighbors! Thank you all for your help and information.

Default Elizabeth in big time horse country

You'll have no trouble with a string of horses in that area. Or longhorns, or bison, or cattle or....I took riding lessons with a woman up in the Elizabeth-Larkspur area and she had a half dozen of them, and 40 acres of land to roam on. I see many large horse properties up that way. Whole area is rural. The further east you go, the more rural it gets.

Parker may be a different story as its built up and there may be restrictions. A realtor would know of restrictions.

Parker has the Colorado Horse Park, where they have many events. See: http://www.coloradohorsepark.com/

The main E-W road thru Elizabeth is CO-86. Its a small town, in the center of town, just off the main drag, is a BBQ joint. Bennett's? Been there, food is great and plentiful, people are friendly too.

The whole area, staying east of I-25, from Larkspur up thru Elizabeth, up thru Castle Rock and on up into Parker is critter country. The further east of I-25 you go, the better. The whole area is worth looking at.

Douglas County Fairgrounds, Castle Rock, is a major horse venue, great facilities. http://www.douglas.co.us/eventscenter/

Sorry for any delay in responding. Issues abound! Thank you very much for the information. We are still looking east as well. Bennett, Strasburg areas. Big move for us so we want to be sure we choose wisely this time! Hoping to be in Colorado by this time next year.
