Horse races, breeding, dressage, show jumping, polo, combined driving… when it comes to horses, the possibilities abound. Both a well-reasoned investment and one based on passion, equestrian estates obey their own logic, and it is important to understand the ins and outs of this world.
Equestrian estates are a property in a class of their own, equally vibrant and diversified across France. A “lifestyle” acquisition that obeys a number of principles linked to their very nature.
When it comes to horse farms, the quality of the ground is essential in guaranteeing the nutritional qualities needed for the healthy development of foals. The property should ideally be located in one of the renowned breeding regions, starting with haute and basse Normandy.
For equestrian estates, specific market research is required, especially when it comes to setting up a new estate. The discipline(s) practised will determine the search criteria (region, infrastructure needed, size of the property, etc.).
Ensuring these criteria are systematically taken into account is key to the success of this type of investment. Given that equestrian sports appeal to a wide audience, the French equestrian federation (FFE) is the third largest federation in France with 650,000 members, behind football and tennis.
