I am looking at relocating my family (wife + 3 kids) to the surrounding Denver area and was wondering if there are any other areas other than Parker / Elizabeth on the outskirts of Denver that have horse property?

sure. There are properties zoned for horses throughout the metro area. Price more than anything will limit your options.

Do you know if Parker / Elizabeth are probably the most reasonably priced Denver Metro areas with horse property? We want 2 acres at a minimum, need a 4 bedroom home and don't want to spend over $550k.

There are not a lot of places with lots big enough for horses close-in. If you're looking for a different part of the metro area than Parker, you might try the Niwot area in Boulder County. It might be kinda far from your work, however.

Don't know what prices are like in Parker/Elizabeth. Here in Boulder Co., a house that size on a city lot costs about $500K

If your budget is over $650k I would look at Keene Ranch and Bell Mountain Ranch in Castle Rock. If your budget is not that high I would look into Perry Pines in Sedalia or Valley Park in Larkspur.

If you're looking to build your own, you can find 5 acre plots on the far outskirts of Parker for around $140K to $150K. I've been researching this for quite a while. You'll be pretty far out from downtown, but not quite in Kansas.

You can also build a 4 BR house around 2500 sq ft, without all of the gaudy upgrades for about $300K. That leaves you about $100K under your budget, to spend on either upgrades, more space, or a slightly more desirable lot. You will get a few builders who will tell you to expect $200 per sq ft, but that's high end, it can be done for much less. But if you want a 3000 sq ft house, you'll have to stick to around $125/sq ft, which will be tricky, but not impossible.

If you're just looking to buy an existing property, there are millions of search engines for you to use to find properties that fit your requirements. Realtor.com is just one of many.

We have looked and purchased horse property in the Denver area two times in 10 years-

Best prices- Brighton, Longmont. Erie, Windsor- all have decent access to 1-25 to get to Denver. If your working in South Denver these north areas may not work.

There is a small sub division just out side of Aurora, and as close in as you can get for horse property called Dove Hill estates ( Gunclub road and quincy). Prices around 400K and 2-4 acres. Also north along the gun club road area in Aurora.

Parker is great, and you should be able to find what your looking for in the older homes on horse property.

We moved to Boulder a couple of years ago- the prices here are nuts.

Question Horse Stable near Soda Lake and other recommendations

I am moving to the Evergreen, Conifer, Morrison area in October from CA and I am looking for a nice stable to board my horse at. Someone mentioned in a previous post that there is a nice Dressage barn near Soda Lake. I tried to google it but nothing came up. Does anyone know it's official name and / or phone #? Also, I am looking for the names of other nice stables near this area that has an indoor arena, especially in the Evergreen/Conifer/Morrison area. I already know about Bridlewood Stables (full), Swede Gulch Farms (expensive) and Normandy Stables. Any other recommendations?

Also, is too cold to body clip in Colorado during the winter? What does typical horse shoeing cost in these areas for 4 standard shoes? I heard that you are supposed to take the shoes off in the winter so they don't get snow packed. Is this true? Can you trail ride in the winter at all? Sorry for my snow ignorance.
