Equestrian Market: Spring Update

Kevin Clarke, Partner and Head of Stags Equestrian department, takes a look at the current market and what the coming months are likely to bring.

​​​​​​The days are feeling like they are really starting to lengthen and we are getting excited about what this year has in store for us all.

Spring is a wonderful time to sell any property but this is even more prevalent for those looking to sell and buy their equestrian home. The weather is warming up, the horses can spend more time in the fields and we can look forward to getting outside for events and competitions.

After a quieter autumn, the West Country property market is picking up pace. With buyers returning in confidence and an improved choice for those looking for their next move, the market appears to be in a much more sustainable long-term situation.

In 2022, Stags sold over £108 million worth of properties marketed as equestrian, from stable yards with paddocks, through to Treworra Barton with its holiday cottages, 17 acres, American barn with Loddon-type stables and 30m x 30m outdoor school, demonstrating the breadth of property on offer and the range of our expertise and knowledge dealing with diverse properties.

We are fortunate in the West Country to have outstanding natural attributes, connections to the rest of the UK and some of the best well-established equestrian competition centres, making it a wonderfully attractive region to anyone with an interest in horses.

If you are thinking of selling your equestrian property, get in touch with one of our local experts as there might not be a better time to sell.
