Equestrian Communities Florida

Though Sarasota is known mostly for its scenic beaches and calming waterscapes, most people are unaware of its number of beautiful world-class equestrian communities. A handful of these communities are scattered throughout Sarasota, but many of them are situated on the area along the I-75, stretching for about 10 miles from University Parkway to Clark Road.

Interested buyers will find a diverse variety of horse farms and ranches especially in the area east of Sarasota, with many styles that suit any type of budget. You can choose from parcels that offer one-acre lots to ten-acre lots, but most of the properties offer a minimum of around five to ten-acre lot sizes.
