Middle Tennessee is blessed to have many equestrian communities as well as equestrian properties.
Equestrian communities are planned housing developments where people and horses can co-exist. There are usually a number of deeded restrictions that can include specific rules concerning the use of the property, deeded horse trails, number of horses allowed per lot and restrictions on commercial use of the horse trails.
In Williamson County, Lynnwood Downs, Saddle Springs, Brandon Park are few of the equestrian communities with centralized barns with arenas, common pastures and riding trails.
Williamson County has long been known for its beautiful and well-established horse farms. Williamson County also has many wonderful properties with large acreage and barns. These properties are typically found in Arrington, Franklin, Leipers Fork, Nolensville and occasionally Brentwood.
Williamson County schools have a strong 4-H program which allows students to incorporate their love of horses in competitve learning situations. There are many horse barns that offer boarding and lessons. Peachtree Farms in Arrington and Old Hillsboro Manor in Franklin are two of my personal favorites.
